So my desire to pick up some vintage stuff is beginning to win out over any good sense I have left.

I've been the custodian of the GWB for a while and am now willing to sell it. My original plan was to have it refinished at HM to look like the Nicky burst.

It's the best historic I've heard. Not hyperbole and there are a couple folks on here who can back that up.

Upgrades:

OTPG PAF replica pickups w/ covers (double white).
OTPG bone rings.
Mojoaxe cream jack plate.
Aged DMC knobs.
Aged DMC pointers.
Aged Retrospec "offset" steel tailpiece studs.
Aged DMC aluminum tailpiece V1.
Aged MGL/CreamTone TruVintage brass bridge stud and thumbwheel.
Aged Vintage Haven poker chip.
Mojoaxe PGC59 Vintage Replica pickguard.
Aged Retrospec knurled nut.
Vintage 1959 catalin switch tip.
HM Retrospec inlays.
Throbak wiring harness.
Aged Retrospec TRC.
DMC tuner ferrules.
Vintage 1959 Kluson Deluxe single line tuners with aged Vintage Haven tips.
Period correct pebbled black custom shop case.

6499 shipped as is.
4999 shipped without the OTPG pups and rings.

I reserve the right to pull my head out my arse and keep this.

Not in the market, if I was I’d pull the trigger. I’m surprised no one grabbed it yet. Hey man, you’ll probably regret letting that one go. That is one of the nicest guitars I’ve seen in a while

I bet when you bought it, your forum NGD had members pouring in with compliments. It definitely has the ooh ah factor. I think it’s better than a lot of the CC models and most like better than most LPs made. It would slip into Vic’s books and nobody would think twice about it. I better stop, I don’t want to keep you from the new venture you are seeking. And I know better than most. I’ve been at that crossroad too many times to mention. Good luck selling or keeping it.

I googled OTPG PAFs ,since I know nothing about them, and watched a couple videos. Even listening to their tone thru my phone's speaker I was stunned by tbeir clarity and overall tone. This LP looks amazing...and surely sounds incredible too in a great player's hands. I am surprised it is still for sale...GLWS!

GWB screams 'remove my splooge from my exterior and apply the correct and appropriate thin nitro and let me rule the vast wasteland of reissue Lesters'

Those 2 pcs of figured maple is totally bitchn!
