Thanks alot gibson!! I have been waiting for this guitar over 1 year now only to find out its 50K . Well 50 doctors and lawyers will be happy! I think you forgot who  keeps gibson in business, Its the players the faithful players who keep buying gibson guitars. Well you priced us out of this guitar. I think i just bought my last gibson!! I Think Peter Green and Gary Moore would have been pissed that you priced out the people that would play this guitar! The players

It will sell, its limited and got Gibsons name on it. Thats all it takes. The 10k Noel Gallagher ES's went like free beer at a neighborhood BBQ. Rich docs and lawyers who need to impress their cronies with be drooling for this nugget.

I wouldn’t say hate, but they are greedy bastards, and you seem to support that. It’s nice to know only the Uber Rich can have the nice stuff, and all the other poor scmucks can go do without.

Who keeps them in business ARE Docs and Lawyers, and the same are getting them out of debt. Oh you thought Gibson cares about you, no they don’t, they care about this - $. And nothing else. This and all the other limited Sigs are 100% proof.

I’ve probably owned more Gibsons in my lifetime than you. I’ve had about 25 or so. How may have you had? So I can post my views till shown the door. And the record in question is a damn good one. All you wanna do is be a fake moderator and police the forum, well police my posts mostly, and tell people what they posted was bad. 
I would like to be rich, it beats being poor.

Sucks that Gibson made getting a Greeny/Moore/Hammett near impossible even if you have the money. The 50 people who will receive this definitely has connections, or at least 40 of them do, while 10 was reserved for privileged customers.  Was told it was gone as it was announced.

Gibson is part of the problem and not the solution, yet there are those that will gladly get slapped in the face  by Gibson and ask for another.

And $14,000 Murphy aged are flying off the shelves too, 

Post after post I see people posting pictures of the high dollar Murphys,  money somewhere just not in my pocket

I’m in the same boat. Gibson long ago stopped being a working man’s guitar maker, and now makes guitars for the well to do. It’s capitalism, and us ‘Mericans would not have it any other way. Can’t afford a 50k guitar, too fukin bad, others can. Go buy one of our off brand Epi’s at $600 and have a nice day.

Soon Murphy might age Epi’s at 4k a pop. Won’t that be fun.

Don’t worry Gibson doesn’t read posts here, so they won’t steal my idea and run with it, then sue me for it.

There was a Murphy Lab aged USA Casino shared on Epiphone's social media channels last week.

Don’t think Gibson was ever a working man’s guitar maker. It was always something to aspire for, provided you had the funds. Not matter what era. All the model numbers were originally named after the price. You think acquiring a SJ-200 was a working man’s guitar back in the late 1930-1940s when one was making $0.05 to $0.15 an hour?

I love it when people think only doctors and lawyers have money and also assume they can't play. I would consider myself as very wealthy, played in bands since I am 16 and still play in a band and I am now past 60. BTW, I am not a doctor or lawyer, but went through school all the way and was quite successful in my professional life. And yes I purchase expensive guitars when I see one that I like. If you have a problem with that, it is your problem only.

Anyway, I am not interested in this guitar since I am not a LP guy. But I have no problem what Gibson is asking for. It is a limited run and given how well the Historic collection/ Murphy Lab guitars are selling, they will have no issue to selling  these Greeny copies for that amount. I remember when Fender made this special run of SRV's #1 with a price tag of $ 10K, lot's of people complained. Same with Eric Clapton's Blackie,  now they at least tripled in price on the used market.

 Gibson tell's everyone what it is and one can make his/her own decision if they want it and have the funds for it. 

I don't understand your anger, I know you don't like aged guitars anyway.  Blaming the management of a company for making money and being profitable is an odd one for sure.

all these people commenting as if you can't get an R9 for like $5k on a good day. oh you're a blue collar working musician? one of the best les pauls out there for a tenth of the cost. Why do you feel like the greenie is the only guitar you can have? even if it was a third of the price, are you going to take it out to all those bar gigs on monday night?

I never said Docs and Lawyers can't play, but if you think once their practices start to take off they eat Ramen, well probably not. That was their college days.
