You'll have to satisfy yourself with saving, along with others, this iconic guitar from the toilet.
My opinion is that they will most likely be very awesome guitars yet they all ready reissued this model. As far as I can remember this seems to be a first for Gibson to reissue the same model twice.I have been told that for 2023 the 59 Greeny is coming and it will be Murphy Lab Aged. I am sure everyone knows this is the guitar owned by Peter Green, Gary Moore, and currently under the guardianship of Kirk Hammett. I am told by reliable sources there will be 2 versions and this will be a limited build allocated to dealers based on sales and territory however Gibson wont disclose how many they will build but will fill all dealer allocation orders available in 2023 only.
Version 1: Aged in the Murphy Lab and allocated to dealers. MSRP $14,999.
Version 2: Gibson Garage version only. Gibson will fly you to Nashville and you will get your guitar at the Gibson Garage with a meet & greet and photo op with Kirk Hammett and rumored that Kirk will sign your guitar. MSRP $49,999.
A dealer friend of mine joked that Garage version will come with a foot massage by Kirk!
Gibson has made place for, at least two, more names on the hardcase. Wonder how more correct and pricey they will be?My opinion is that they will most likely be very awesome guitars yet they all ready reissued this model. As far as I can remember this seems to be a first for Gibson to reissue the same model twice.
Curious if Brandon from Brandonwound created the pups for these models? He was brought in right before they created Kirk’s Greeny reissue.the big story here is A2 mags! I bet/hope that Gibson is going to drop the A3 magnets from the regular Custom Shop R Guitar Custombuckers
my initial thoughts are
version one, for 15k better at least have a Brazilian fret board, resonate and sustain for days.
also at this price point it needs to pass the 10-guitar blindfold test, it cannot sound average
version two, play and sound wise needs to exceed version one
as far as signature goes, my personal view is that Dave Mustain is a much better musician and player than Kirk will ever be and for that reason I am out.
and if I'm brutally honestly, i think Robert Trujillo is better guitar player than Kirk ,
anyway if I was a collector with spare cash, version one for me. I can get a pic and sig later on
Man I heard some tune and he was up on it! It was some metal ballad type thing and with each chord (if we can call it that, a diad??) old boy was hitting some changes. You realized pretty quickly he was not just a guitar dude but a proper bonafide cat. Good for him, it's refreshing to hear guys like that in the genre and there are others too like you noted.
To imagine that a player like the Kirk fella isn't the perfect gel for that band is lacking taste. Should we also complain about the lack of Holdsworth in Bad Company, I mean WTF??? Boy I wish Mars Volta had a guitarist like Stevie Ray, it's a shame Roland Kirk wasn't Sinatra's tenor man and for the love of all that's holy why didn't Kafka write some books my two year old could read?
Making these available is a smart move from a marketing perspective and I'm sure there is limited demand and they will sell through.
I always think these accurate reproductions are fun to see. I would like to see one, but if it were in a store, I wouldn't play it. My philosophy is that I never play a guitar in a shop unless I'm serious about buying that day. Making these available is a smart move from a marketing perspective and I'm sure there is limited demand and they will sell through.
I worked with Metallica and Kirk Hammet was a nice enough guy. I can't imagine him being rude to anyone or why people would want to insult him. He's sold millions of records, made millions of people happy, and has done what he wanted in life. I can't imagine anyone not wanting to do the same.
I can tell you boxes 3K and 3J contained some pretty amazing instruments! Everything is run through AxeFX and the cabinets by the drums are fake.
Metallica rules.. man sometimes this forum is worse than TGP.. whiny boomers this guitar was not marketed for us who can’t afford it.. plain and simple. I love Peter green and ofcourse gary moore but like it or not Kirk has inspired more people to pick up the guitar than green and moore combined..This whole post was written with elan and panache but the *snips* are ... Total Gold. Made my evening, thanks.
