Well Mr. Bryant if it had been that simple I wouldn't have sent out the Post. Buying an all ready built on line guitar is simple. I have 7. But I was asking to get a custom guitar built under my specs. I finally am getting it done with Heritage Guitar company. Which I did use Google to find during my research. It's the closeest thing to Gibson I could get. The people at the factory have been real nice taking pictures of it getting built. Hopfully it will be in my hands in a couple of months. Here take a look at the progress. http://s462.photobuc...mview=slideshow I also have a blog going on about the building of this guitar.

I understand now, I misread your post. I don't think Gibson does custom guitars for anyone unless they are famous lol. They used to for everyone I believe. Martin does public custom work for their acoustics, and Fender does for their electrics, I think Gibson should as well.

Well, I think you couldn't've chosen a better guitar company to make your Custom spec'ed guitar.
This is the good people that used to work for Gibson before it went bunkrupt the first time, didn't sold out for the suits and took their destiny in their own hands founding the Heritage Co. from the ashes from the disbanded, looted and plundered Gibson Co.
Luthiers turned businessmen. Their policy? Build and sell guitars at their best of capabilities for a fair price.
Since then they slowly but steadely grew year after year, while Gibson went bunkrupt once again.
For me, they're the REAL Gibson. The ones that carried on the MacCarty legacy.
And they still exist, stronger than ever. Still selling the best guitars they can make for a fair price.
Food for thought, Henry. Food for thought...
