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.
Proof Gibson doesn't dye Ebony boards
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 $8300 for a M2M B7 with 3pu and Ebony board. I'd bet same price today with Richlite...maybe more
Richlite is a superb material. It is no exotic tropical wood, however.
Corian ain't no bone either.
I do agree totally with you. I now have 3 guitars with Richlite (2 Gibson and 1 Godin) and it's a superb material, also makes the neck much more stable because density is hundreds of time higher than wood. Was just thinking would be nice to have Ebony in a Reissue, since you can buy a cheap indonesia/asia with Ebony.
It is a good price yes, and the guitar also looks great honestly.
I just could never get my head around 4.7k for a richlite board guitar.
I paid 799 AUS for Ebony board, Gibson p90 loaded Epiphone 1955 Reissue.
.........sorry guys but I feel richer, not having Richlite.
It's not the point for me. A slab of ebony its 18$. My point is about the correctness of a Reissue.
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!
Actually I think He's smoking EBONY...........he doesn't give up his stash
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.
Importing an original 68/69 over here in Europe (those are mostly USA market) means charging an extra 22% for VAT and another 24% for Taxes. That, plus the risks involved in the shipping and the "as is" seller policies. Means final price for me would be an average 12.000$. No f......g way.
Also the prices are not looking that "low";
The last '68 reissue was $7300, so $6500 would be a price cut. Still over priced but...
well international yeah point made (which I get but was unknown) That 69 on reverb is way, WAY overpriced for its condition. He'll NEVER sell it at that price (no wonder it's been going on over a year). That's an 7300-8K max value on that imho, and that's if the frets aren't shot and doesn't need a refret right out of the gate despite the claim it's in 'great' shape. moved input jack, extra holes? 13K? The seller is smoking bling-bling grade crack.
