In search of info on guitars

Recommended Posts

Hello all, just wondering if anyone had any info as far as "ghost built gibsons" in early 2000s, looking at a "2003 custom shop LP" Which is supposedly a ghost built guitar with piezo bridge and one off color.  Also being offered a 1990 custom firebird. Or any one of a number of hamers. Prices are claimed to be 3000 to 3500 Ideas? Opinions? New with Gibson's and nervous trading without any opinions. Guy seems legit and has a **** ton of gorgeous guitars. Thanks in advance!

I have heard of ghost builds but even the 'insider knowledge' such as you have quoted is still no more than hearsay. 

It remains hearsay until you have some provenance to substantiate such claims. If the seller/dealer can supply this then you have something to talk about. Otherwise its just another guitar with another price tag on it.

You can always take the serial number and ask Gibson about it. They will likely be able to confirm the model, year of manufacture etc. at least. its what I would do.

No offense, but ghost or not, that is one ugly looking Les Paul.  The pale green body with black knobs, maple board and black headstock - nothing seems to fit together.  Oh well to each his own.  Never heard of "ghost" builds before so can't offer any advice on values.
