Can't blame Buddy or any other pro for trying to make a buck. Especially when you consider his role in popularizing the music that a lot of us love.

I don't blame Buddy. Not in the least, but don't bullshit me that it's because he respects the instrument that much.

I also hate the concept of guitars as collectibles and not tools. But that's just me.
Me too. Some rich oil tycoons can buy a few bursts just to collect them and push the price to ridiculous levels.
Here is a guy who takes his vintage axes on the road. He uses them. Such a great performer too.

Nice looking guitars no doubt but they will have nowhere near the resale value of the Greeny if that’s even important to to you.


Point well taken and I agree with you on the potential for resale value of a Greeny example however I only purchase guitars as tools for playing music; not for any potential resale value.

Wow, just saw troglys guitar shows video about the 50k greeny. I gotta say, I am stunned how shitty it looks! I mean guys, cmon, have you ever looked to the other side? Just compare the greeny relics to fender relics done by Dale or Trigt and you would laugh your ass off on how bad the greeny really looks. The transition to rusty and non-rusty parts are so badly done, the headstock break is just a carving, the checkings are all placed evenly and obvisouly systematically over the top, it is laughable, the rust on the pickups look inauthentic etc. And 50k for this guitar is basically a scam and i my eyes unacceptable. Panucci basically builds guitars with the same specs as the greeny with far better relics and only charges 6k for it... I am also stunned that so few people see this as a red flag... With this pricing policy, gibson is 100% heading to bankruptcy, again...

I highly doubt anyone who shells out 50k for a Greeny replica is going to be playing it out at the local VFW. Funny story, yesterday a luthier friend of mine just had to repair a ding in a relic guitar for some wealthy dude!?!? WTF? Those are the kind of people buying these things. LOL

FYI: A good showcase of tones, and hi-res video of 2.

I enjoy how they've gone thru a timeline of essential songs throughout the guitar's lifetime, changing players and rigs to match the styles of music from the successive owners' catalog. I guess having a massive music store at your disposal helps...

Nathaniel Murphy @zeppelinbarnatra always tastey!
