    Probably why it'still there.

    All tho I'd wager that it'd darken nicely with play and maybe an oiling. It looks really dry in that pic.

    That makes no sense. Why would anyone go the M2M route to get it done with Richlite? Do a M2M with Ebony and you're close to used but not beat to shit real 68 customs with ebony and patent # PAF's.

    That's actually not a bad price, I think. I'm quite surprised by that.

    Back in January of this year was given a price of $8300 for a M2M B7 with 3pu and Ebony board. I'd bet same price today with Richlite...maybe more

    Richlite is a superb material. It is no exotic tropical wood, however.
    Corian ain't no bone either.

    I do agree totally with you. I now have 3 guitars with Richlite (2 Gibson and 1 Godin) and it's a superb material, also makes the neck much more stable because density is hundreds of time higher than wood. Was just thinking would be nice to have Ebony in a Reissue, since you can buy a cheap indonesia/asia with Ebony.

    It is a good price yes, and the guitar also looks great honestly. :)

    I just could never get my head around 4.7k for a richlite board guitar.

    I paid 799 AUS for Ebony board, Gibson p90 loaded Epiphone 1955 Reissue.

    It's not the point for me. A slab of ebony its 18$. My point is about the correctness of a Reissue.

    BTW;

    Ok, I've an update; Gibson can still give you ebony in a M2M, but does charge you 1800$ more for a Ebony board, so a '68 reissue jumps from 4700 to 6500, for a 20 bucks piece of ebony.

    Henry you should really stop smoking crack! :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    And if you're spending that, what's another 500-1K to get the real deal? To me if I were going for that type of guitar it makes no sense to plink that on a reissue when the originals are within spitting distance.
