So Gibson beat Ibanez to it by about 30 years?
Ok, now $4000 for a custom-shop Jackson or ESP doesn't seem so bad after all...
That is a beauty, though. I'd be afraid to play it. Hell, if I won that auction, I'd travel to Japan to personally pick up the guitar.
Holy crap, that's nice.
you said it! +1
We've got 200 years old 7-string guitars, that can beat any 7-string from 20th century ))))))
Damn, that's a serious piece of history, for sure...
Yeah, I post some history of 7-string guitar in thread called "7-string tuning question" or so, alone with standard tuning for Russian 7-string guitar.
p.s. Why Ibanez? George Van Eps build his custom 7-string Epiphone in 1937, and I've seen his custom 7-string Gretsch in Guitar Player, October 1998... 1937 - was it 70 (minus 1 year) years ago?
I love how it's "Super" lol.
Why is there a watermark on all of those pictures?
common practice in Japan. Tc gacci (on-line auction) usually place watermarks on photo...
I was too lazy to click on the auction link to find the price, thanks for posting it
"Super" means it is 18" across the lower bout, as opposed to the 17" of the L-5. You can tell by looking at it that it's wider than an L-5, and a full two inches wider than a 175 (or L-4).
And I think that that guitar is worth every penny of 25K. I would have thought 40K would have been a more realistic starting point, personally.
Price is super too... $-))
please don't shoot for bumping this thread but I'm looking for pix of this guitar, maybe someone saved them on his HDD or know where I can find them??
Like usual, I arrived late.
anyone got the picture still?
Nikt, With all your hot, hot LACS action, you can bump any damned thread you like
by the way, +1000 to this.
I'd love to see pictures of the actual guitar too.
But, while looking around, I found the Gibson 400CES 6 string. I'm assuming that this, with a 7 string setup, is basically what the guitar was like? It's a beauty, anyway.
