    That 52/59 Mirabella Burst is one of the best looking conversions I have ever seen. :applause: Why can't I get lucky and find a top like that?

    Jim, Rich sent me tons of pics of this guitar when he first got it, it is just spectacular. It sounds great too.

    Wasn't the last 52' you got from Chris an early unbound? I'd love to know what he had to do in that conversion.

    I never really understood it when people said that. Who the hell doesn't ask what it costs before they buy? Just sayin'....

    You have no idea how many paople ask me how much...mostly because they just want to know...a serious buyer would say send me pics...then we'll talk...you'd be shocked at how many have contacted me and thought it would only have been $15k...that's all I'm saying.

    Like anyhtign else you pay for quality...this is as close to the real thing as you will EVER feel or play..EVER part is from 59' except the PUP rings..that inlcudes all screws back plastic etc etc etc

    So you think 20K isn't enough for a modified old Gibson? Conversions are just that, modified (maybe brought back from the grave, who knows and who cares) old "not-stock-anymore" guitars, aka "guitars with issues" and just because it cost you 35K to put it all together doesn't make it worth that. The "if you have to ask you couldn't afford it" lingo is usually reserved for THE REAL THING!
