Curious if Brandon from Brandonwound created the pups for these models? He was brought in right before they creat
I'm Jared Brandon the previous owner of Brandonwound. I'm on the developmet team at Gibson focused on pickups. We at Gibson developed the Greeny pickups. Not Brandonwound.I may buy a ML of it IF I can play it first. $50k for a replica? You’re an idiot with money to throw. Why not sell them for $20k and skip the fly over, meet n greet with Kirk and the photo op? That’s where the $30k is. Cause a braz board ML is what? 18-20k MSRP? Not like it’ll sound like Greeny. I’m betting they use Brandonwound PUPs in it. Not just reg custombuckers. For $50k I’d expect old growth mahogany at minimum.
Duh. Inevitable. The “cheaper” Greeny will be $20k lolyeah but these ones are green, jus like a green back dollar !!
Hey, I read that G are going to be raising their prices again by say 20% or so ??
No they’re not ALL the same. Just like every 59 is different. I like the look of aging as well. But I’m not going to spend $50k for an R9 that you can buy for $10-12k heavy aged by Smurf labA few of em and they don t all feel / sound the same… then it is down to personnal preference. Personnally i love the art of aging, and replicating famous guitars, but that is not everyone’s cup of tea…
Hahaha that’s what I meant man. I knew you went over to Gibbyland. I figured you did have something to do with. Will those same pups be installed in thr 2023 Greeny guitars as well?I'm Jared Brandon the previous owner of Brandonwound. I'm on the developmet team at Gibson focused on pickups.
