    I'm feeling very optimistic at the moment! Currently talking out my options with Scott.

    That's great to hear. Scott's build is unreal, and I'm trying to do the same sort of aging myself to my almost-replica.

    My historic search ended monday just in time for my birthday (today). Of course, I had a considerably broader search, given that I was looking at Black Beauties (whose tops don't vary).

    Hope this ends in good news!

    The ExNihilo Vintage Burst Build would be my prime candidate among these.

    How about this "Gibson Custom Shop Gloss Finish Chambered 1958 Figured Top Les Paul Reissue (2010)" at Mark's? It's $3,695.00

    Thanks man, I was going to buy Scott's build but he got a trade offer he'd been wanting for a long time.
    As for the linked one, i'm really going for a solid body. Thanks for the help though mate.

    Thought you might like that - awesome top. Can't hurt to email them and see what can be worked out.

    Bump. The price of the lemon was a bit too sour for me...

    You've been waiting so long, surely you've saved up some more cash so you can afford the one you want??

    I have a feeling he might've just got lucky over at TGP. Say it's the truth, Jonny!

    Well good luck with that! It's been a long patient wait for you. I hope you get your dream LP!

    Enjoy the thrill of the hunt in the meantime. I find the hunt almost as rewarding as the score.
