A certain Utah collector has been very busy lately, converting his treasures into something more portable. His Master Museum J-180 Silver Sparkle is still available, should you wish to do more stargazing, but. . . it is the Super 400 China Dragon Custom that might give you some ideas for your next Made-2-Measure custom (for those finicky about the feel of your guitar neck, check out the back of the neck on the S400 Dragon, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gibson-Super-400-China-Dragon-Custom-Masterpiece-Archtop-Guitar/174194559673?hash=item288ece0ab9:g:AsEAAOSw271dMkzu

Hate to say it, but that has zero appeal to me. The only guitar I've ever played worth that kind of money--actually a whole lot more-- was one of the late 30s D-45s. That thing was pure magic. And it was a guitar that you could and would play without impacting on its value.

Somehow I see that China Dragon guitar as a prop in a James Bond movie with a wealthy Chinese bad guy who uses it as an instrument of torture by playing an endless loop of "Freebird" and "Smoke on the Water" through a Marshall stack with your head tied to it.
