Gibson couldn't give them away, but now you can have one for only $21,999 (plus shipping and handling)

I believe the price is based on $99 for the guitar and $21,900 for the scribbling:

Catch the excitement while you have the chance!

I bought one from Guitar Center with everything for just under $2000 about a year and a half ago. They had a few of them. I think they'll always have some value but you may have to really wait for the right person to get your money.

Prototype #1, that’s why it’s so expensive. It’s for collectors, not players.

A friend of mine bought one when they first came out. I didn’t think much of it….

I got the chance to demo one for about a week when they came out and I loved it. I don't know what they did to the pickups but for direct recording it worked really well. I wrote a long review praising it and it got me suspended from a guitar forum.

At the time I would work in several different places and if that's what you're doing (and using mainly sims) it was really, really good. Now, due mainly to Covid and constructing a better space, I work mostly at home where I can have more guitars/amps without moving everything. I don't really use many amp sims so it's less valuable to me but I would love to see Gibson produce something with the impedance or whatever gadget was in the FBX.
