    I hope it is ok to post this here.

    I am looking for someone that I can commission a build.
    Singleclut Custom 68 specs and/or 57 specs, period correct.
    Not sure yet if black or aged white.
    I don't care about the weight, loved my 77 with almost 11lbs as much as I love my R8 with 8.5lbs.

    I do not want to break the bank. I will provide all parts (electronics and hardware)
    Please PM if you are interested. PM only please. Will prefer those that have builds posted here. Would be even better if you have already built a custom.

    I am located in the USA.

    Just be aware white is not period correct for either spec. Abd if you buy a secondhand Gibson reissue of either guitar you will probably spend less than a custom guitar

    If was not clear, read as follow:
    Period correct - construction and size
    Color - black or aged white

    Price - I did not put a price cap on how much I want to spend, you don't know my budget, as also I am very much familiar on prices of second hand Gibsons and what I can get and pay on well built replica.

    If you are a builder and would be willing to talk about, please PM.

    Its your money of course......If you are as aware as you say, you will know the finished husk from a quality builder will cost as much as a higher-end priced s/h reissue, maybe more.
    And you're right that I don't know your budget. But in my own (unrelated) business I have found a strong correlation between those who immediately start with budget constraint language and those who don't know the full scope of what the works are likely to cost. Hence me trying to make you aware of the option.

    Have a great day:cheers2:
