They had one for about 6500 EUR more than a year ago and that one never had to be listed. Was gone in a couple of days. At this price point I suppose they had to list this one.

6500 ? surely it was only the VOS one, not the aged

Aged. I would have preferred VOS but in any case by the time I saw the email I was already too late. That's about the speed it was sold.

I’d say aged with just 200% markup from the regular True Historic LP instead of 400%.

Just kidding :D

It's a lot of money, but considering it is a limited number of guitars made, it's a replica (even more attention to detail than usual), and the many hours of manual labor at US wages, the price is not unreasonable.

If I had money enough, I would buy the MK Fender and Gibson just as decorative things for home, as I don't play guitar... probably also a National resonator

As I don't have so much money for decorative items of such a price, that just a wild dream LOL

That's why I bought this  :lol :lol :lol:

Perhaps you're confusing "aged" with "aged and signed"? The signed version was about 10k (or just under, don't remember) list price and "just aged" was about 6k.

I missed a VOS version at Peach guitars when they got another one (shortly after they were released by Gibson). It went before I could answer that email and I would have bought it - it was about 4500 GBP from memory. Then an "aged" one popped up at The fellowship but I was not really after "aged" and it was also more expensive. It didn't matter anyway  :smack

I think I'm priced out of the market now anyway. Not that I need one of those to sound good anyway. It wouldn't help one bit  ;D

Anyone got a signed or a VOS MK LP? I'd be intrigued to know what fret size is used. Mark's had his original 58 refretted with fatter 6100 gauge frets. Just wondering if Gibson have followed his lead or have stuck with the standard skinny 58 frets??

Great news for people who's got $20K of spare cash.

That is NOT the definitive price -  it is advertised as you can make offer.

Anyway this was a "collectible" from start, not a guitar to be played, just bull...

Exactly, my bad. But it's beaten up already, I guess you can play the aged one without worrying so much :lol

For today’s price I can buy a Toyota Corolla here in Brazil. I’d never pay that much for a guitar, even if I were Bill Gates...

Exactly, because it's an instrument. Even for Mark, he owns this original million dollar 1958 Les Paul, but he still makes 10 times more by using it as an actual instrument.
I'd buy it, but only if I knew I can make at least 100 grand out of it. The funniest thing you can buy a brand new 1958 Historic Custom Shop Les Paul for 1/5 of the price.
