    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. :jam:

    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
