btw - My only real Gibson aspiration right now is to have an SG, SG Jr or even Melody Maker with wrap around bridge and P-90s. So I love your avatar!
Mine was $500 and was previously gigged by Social D. $500-$650 is a pretty standard going price for em on ebay. Its nice when your tastes run cheap.

Proof that all Gibsons are not the same.

The bottom 6 are all gibsons.

I'm going to risk it all and say, Nice Rack! Speaking of racks, I see the Mesa 50/50 back there, what is the rest of the rig?

I think there is a fair amount off truth to the comment that guitars at the big box chains aren't as good. I've tried quite a few Gibsons at Best Buy and Guitar Center, and it seems rare to find a good one. It could be that they don't take the time and effort to set them up correctly, or that they get abused by people trying them out. I recently bought a Les Paul Standard Plus from an independent dealer. I tried out 7 or 8 different ones in the process and there wasn't a bad one in the bunch. The one I ended up with is phenominal... probably the best guitar I've ever owned, and I've owned dozens... Gibsons, Fenders, Guilds, Hammers, Ibanez, G&L...

I also agree with the comments that a Gibson won't feel right at first if you have played Fenders all your life. They are a diffent animal.

No The Lucille and 335 are semihollows.

I got my lucille for around a thousand. As best I can tell, Lucilles are worth a bit less than a 335.

My 300 is a full hollow.

ES 175s and such are always available used around where I am.

It all depends on budget. IMO, and you should really check out the Godin ones. I know they have the kingpin model, but they are quite reasonable pricewise, (probably could be found for the same price as an artcore) and are made in Canada with a lot of positive reviews. Besides, having a Godin guitar (or seagull, art & Lutherie or any other one of their brands) is one of those things that is just plain cool. The serious musicians will drool over your fine instrument, while the uninitiated will wonder what a Godin is.

Edit for Apbos.

Also, try out some reverend guitars. Their korean models are awesome and if you happen to come across an affordable USA, those are gold.
Are you telling me an ES 175 is semi also? Wow.

About Godin, a dealer I used to buy all my stuff from told me on the phone they sell their guitars and were promoting them to me. And something keeps telling me I need to stop in at their store. First off, they seem like good guys and always did. They also would probably give me a pretty good deal, at least they said they would "set me up" when I talked with them on the phone. They are kind of far away from me and I didn't make it there yet. But now that you mention Godin, I might just have to check them out. I didn't like the way some of their electrics looked, but I think their hollow or semi hollow are rather normal looking. 335 style or whatever. I'd have to look at their website again.

Thanks for letting us run here Josey. And that guitar is too funny.

Godins are awesome and they are like the secret brotherhood of serious guitar players. Its kind of funny. I may make you a clip of a sound you might like, and its not what you might expect. I am not going to say what they are, lest I bias you... I was monkeying around today and was getting some pretty wild tonalities. Warning: I don't always play normal instruments.

I don't own an electric Godin, just a seagull s12 and an A &L Ami. I am not fond of their strat style guitars, but I liked the hollows looks a lot.

Sad part is, I would gladly play that one.

Me neither (although I did once own and enjoy an Epi Thunderbird IV). It seems to be that so far as basses are concerned this discussion is much less contentious.

OK, I thought the 175 was full hollow. I like those too though. Ibanez has a copy of one of those.

I need to try the godins for sure. And yeah bill, it's a very nice collection you have. What do you need a guitar with exhuast pipes and flames for, ehehehehehehe
