Just went through the sold listings on the Reverb Gibson Demo Shop. Damn, Gibson is killin it, I went through heaven knows how many pages of sold guitars before I got tired. Lots of interesting one off stuff, looks like I’m going to have to pay better attention. This must be Gibsons answer to manufacturers like Kiesel. Hmmmm…….

Too bad for the rest of the world they only ship to the US :rolleyes:
I’m in the USA but I understand your point! Hope that changes soon. I’m sure they are missing out on a lot of sales.

I'd be all over a few if they hadn't stamped them as Demos.

I’ve been digging these, but would probabaly only buy one of the MOD versions, with customized pickup options or whatever.

To be fair I kinda get why they do it. Many of the guitars have blemishes and people buying them outside the US then demanding a return would be mayhem.

Considering these are one offs, very limited and most sell within hours, they are not missing any sales from outside the USA. The only people missing out are potential customers overseas.

Yeah, definitely some cool stuff there.

Their grading is inconsistent... I see some "good" that seem "excellent"' and vice versa. I'm sure they have a few people entering these.

Looks like I’m going to have to check it out daily! Not much for lefties though!

The Junior arrived today. Very well packed. Honestly it looks a lot better than they described. Very happy with it.

Glad to read this thread. Elsewhere, I've been reading loads of criticism for what the posters consider very excessive pricing. I would imagine that numerous buyers are attracted to getting something distinctive that is not a personal mod but a straight Gibson build.
