Nope...not even if I could afford it.
Let me make this simple. No, it’s not worth it. You can get far superior instruments for less, or a top of the line axe for the same that will slay anything Gibson has put out. I paid well under that for a McNaught build that rivals PRS private stock looks, with the Gibson scale and sound, far superior construction and attention to detail and still have enough left compared to that 8k to make a cross country Vegas trip for a few days.
Also, let’s be realistic. Is it going to really sound and play $7,000 better than an import version with new pickups and a decent set up? Likely not.
I always get a kick out of this statement. First off, what does skill level have to do with owning a higher priced guitar, and, if you suck that bad, how in the hell did you justify BUYING it in the first place?
Wait, you didn't know you have to have 50,000 experience points and be at least a level 9 Guitar Mage before you can get enough power ups to be able to unlock a Custom Shop guitar
Owning vs. playing well is similar to selling vs. installing...
They are different. I own several guitars and still can't play worth a damn but I'm annoying people at a pretty good pace with all my noise.
Simply deal on the price, I have bought many guitars on line and found there is an amazing amount of wiggle room.
I recently bought a ES 335, they knocked $1,500 dollars off the price.
If they won't work with you try another on line dealer, I found "Sweetwater" very good to work with and have very nice selections, If your interested PM me, I have a great contact that I know will work with you
It's now $6,999 ! Just touch the link...
Not sure if OP bought it or not
it went down to 6399....I priced matched at Musician Friend where I'll also get an additional $550 in rewards - basically making a Murphy Aged TH 1959 brand new at $6200
Guitar is in my avatar....very pleased with it
If you can afford it without any doubts and intend to keep it- then buy it - but don't buy then regret the purchase or you will lose a bundle of cash on the resale.
You could keep looking for one used - there aren't many out there with the ready cash to buy expensive used guitars so a bargain price is almost guaranteed.
Personally I don't think its worth it - I would go for a LP Std.
What's the Worth of "THE" guitar , might be a better question. When/If you find it , doesn't really matter what it is , since It's the "ONE" .
Agree don't look to flip anything "NEW" these days . But even if you sell it a few years down the road , see your loss as payment for having it and playing it for that time ...
Money comes and goes .... and is all relative .
I got my TH60 at a very good price and like enough to be , now getting it re-fretted with frets I can play better with .. Sell it ???? I've got others that'll go 1st ...
Go for what works / does it for you , if you can afford it .... Don't ask your wife ,, you already know the answer(in most cases) Just take her out shoe shopping (2 pairs would work really well and imo, a good investment in your future ,,, sleep at night with both eyes closed ) and ease it's way in the house ....
Trouble is - when THE guitar is hanging on your wall - The NEXT guitar is already beckoning.......
Or maybe the "One" is just the "One right now." I know I've fallen in that pit. "It perfect, its the most amazing guitar of ever... (rinse and repeat). Now that said, I do have guitars that have been in my top 5 for a couple years now. That says I'm closing in on the One. I'm sure of it.
GAS ,is all you have .
Next , is guitar envy. And you might think you found THE 1 but you haven't .
And nothing wrong with owning a few different 1's . Since all sound and play/feel a little different . Having /using different guitars for different thing you want to play/sound / feel is not a bad thing ,imo .
"it's perfect " sounds like a sellers line from EBay ,,, IMO
