Nice to support a local luthier. Just curious how the costs came out relative to buying a production guitar? There are some pretty amazing builders in the town I live in, but mostly high end stuff with exotic woods. I would guess to have them build an LP with figured maple top it would cost around $4,000-5,000, but I haven't asked.

Your looking at $5000 for sure once everything is said and done for sure.
I suppose if I could get Honduran Mahogany and especially Brazilian rosewood, it just makes me stay away from the re-issues other than the 2003 G Guitars

Would be cool to be able to design your own headstock shape and inlay/logo.

I am a bit partial to the open book.

Wow. Just did a double take when opening this thread. Thought it was my old LP - also a replica. Almost the same shot angle, very similar figuring, and colouring, etc...



Mine was made quite a few years ago.

Can't speak for Phantom, but mine says what it shouldn't say on it. Which earned the builder the famed "cease and desist" letter from Gibson.

I know that a few under-the-radar UK builders still do the G logo/etc if asked.

Why are people so interested in the headstock? lol
My first question would be how does it sound!

How does yours sound ampmaker?
