Most runs of CC's and artist proofs Gibson does have at least 5 (sometimes more) "Artist Proof" guitars done. These guitars are usually given to the artists or collectors who have the original. On more than one occasion, including the Beano, the artist/collector gifted the guitar to Pat as a thank you for his work.
As outrageous of a price as this guy has on the guitar, everything in the description is spot on from what I was told (and I'm sure he was too) from the horses mouth.
So to answer your question, there are 6 artist proof guitars, numbered 1-6.
Might be some exceptions, but I think most CCs had 1 prototype, unless there was an issue. Artist guitars could have many.
