Part of the description:

"Here is a clip of Gibbon’s using the guitar for a French TV program in 1997, preforming his big songs “Jailhouse Rock” and “Brown Sugar”:
"

I guess no one actually watched that clip as it is of Jailhouse Rock & LaGrange. Who could possibly confuse LaGrange with Brown Sugar.

"Gibbon’s first used this guitar in the late 80’s to try out his Tokai Les Paul, and he instantly fell in love."

Two sentences in and already the text makes no sense. He used that guitar to try out that guitar?

I thought it was an LS200? We've seen those sell for between $6k - $10k. With the Billy G factor, it's definitely worth more, especially because it was used and toured a lot, not just some random studio guitar.

EDIT: 1985? Did they still have an LS200 at that point?

That Tokai is cool and did seem to hang around for a little bit. The amount of Bolin built wacky one off guitars he has gone through is just insane.
