Gibby BFG opinions wanted

Recommended Posts

Good , bad or indifferent, it doesn't matter. In the nutshell, I have a friend of a friend wanting some quick cash for his BFG Les Paul and I'm considering a ride over to scope it out. I would appreciate any feedback any of you have on this model. [confused]

Don't have any pics as of yet, it's the green Gator looking thing....[confused] . I've been told that the guitar is less than 6 months old, hasn't been played out gigging. Now, this is all second hand info., I haven't talked to the actual owner as of yet. Apparently the guy needs $800.00. I'm just kicking tires on this thing at the moment.

Ah, I thought so....I'd grab it, even sight unseen then...I remember which Gibby it is....Some hate those, I'd love one..

 

The only green guitars I've seen that I like are that one and Cookieman's Clapman Strat.......

heck for 800 bucks sounds like a good deal to me!

 

they are kinda strange looking at first but when you look at it for a while they look really nice i think...

 

and the p90/hb combo must be good!

I had a black one a while ago. Cool sounding guitars. IIRC, about $800 is what I paid for it new.

 

Thanks guys, I believe that $ 600.00 is more than fair to start haggling at . I can't see more than $675.00 myself.

Well, I played the BFG yesterday, quite a good mix of tonal options. I wasn't too enthused with the lack of fret markers, and old boy was stuck on the $800.00 price he had set , so I told him " HOLLA " . I'm not quite sure what that means, but I hear it used often. [crying]

Is this it?

Yeah, like it. Rustic and nasty looking. How does it sound?

They go for about 1K so appear to be a good price.

Good luck with it.

I really like the pickup combination on the BFG I have a guitar of the week Studio BFG - which is just a gloss black BFG with the BFG wiring and pickups. It's a great guitar and one of my favorites to play because of the options it gives me.
