Ah yes, the legendary '94 Silverburst Les Paul.
That one is Adam’s #1. I think that’s a 79?
Twas a joke. 6:27 here
Damn it, I knew there was a joke there I just couldn’t remember what it was. Hah
I’m definitely getting that sig.
Actually watching the opening band (Author & Punisher) at a Tool concert right now.
It's funny because those '90s Les Pauls are actually starting to become cult classics.
This is such a Phil X kind of guitar. A really cool dude overall. Love the Robin in the neck cavity.
Yeah, he apparently swapped over to Gibson recently. Just got a souped-up V that was made you could see in the Andertons video. He played it at the big Gibson show last night too.B
The funny thing is that I figured it was Phil for sole P90 on the bridge since he's been rocking guitars of that kind exclusively, and I saw a clip with him at the Gibson booth. But with his cool dude persona, adding the Robin just screams like something Phil would do. He's the Jeff Spicoli of the guitar world.
That's one of the main reasons I'm a huge Phil X fan. He still loves guitar like I did when I was 15
Still not sure, maybe a SEM image will help me identify the pickup
It's another instrument in the Gibson Collaboration series, it was actually built by Leo Scala.
From what I've heard there are going to be a lot of cool collaborations coming down the pike, from really good builders, some you wouldn't expect to be working with Gibson. Interesting times.
EDIT: Here's the Gibson/Scala Phil X V.
So what are the chances the Jones LPC is UNDER $8k? I say doubtful but here's to hoping
I think the odds are pretty good. Most new Gibson CS signatures are between $5k and $7.5k MAP (not much under, but still), but I know dealers have a lot of wiggle room on price (high margin) if they don't fly off the shelves.
They could also go the route they have with some of the other bigger name sigs. (Frehley, Frampton, Slash, etc.) and put out a limited "non-CS" model in the $3k to $4k range.
The only way I see it being over $8k is if they do the full VOS/Murphy package on it with low double digit quantity.
I would like to see a more affordable mass production run to keep the prices somewhat manageable for the average guy but a limited VOS/Murphy run would be killer and would have the collectors going crazy I'm sure.
If I remember correctly, the Bill Kelliher Golden Axe was $1300 when it came out, the Halcyon, white Lizzie Hale, and Thunderhorse were around $2000. So in terms of Gibson pricing, that was relatively affordable. If they do go that route, I wonder if they would only burst the top to keep costs down.
Adam Jones sig finally in production according to his Instagram...
They’ll fuck it up somehow, throw light ass rosewood or some other species on there that’s super brown, and chamber it. Either that or do a faithful reproduction and go HEAVY on the price. Not a bad idea for that but it’ll throw everyone into a hissy fit.
Given that LPC’s bog standard are $4700, these are gonna be ruthless either way.
... Or they could knock it out of the park. I’m gonna be optimistic for once haha. We’ll see soon!
Those 70s V/Explorers are fuckin' rad!
