QuoteSo can anyone confirm this? I\'ve looked online and called several local guitar stores and found out zero about the Buckethead Les paul...maybe Travis knows something?........
QuoteWhat ever happened to bucket\'s spirit of it\'s about the music and not the endorsements?
QuoteI\'m just saying someone who toured with GNR can\'t honestly have cash problems.
QuoteSomeone like bucket has to be in it for the music not the dough.
Quote^that\'s a huge assumption and besides, wealth is relative.^I agree. But I don\'t see this signature guitar as a way Big B will make money, it is an Honor bestowed upon him by a small faction of the music industry. It\'s apparent to me from the release of his last 2 albums that he isn\'t in it for the money. FF and NiaSS (imo) were made for the fans and for Big B himself.If Big B wanted he could make albums that sounded like Jordon and Nottingham Lace and have more mass appeal. He could make tons of merchandise and be like alot of musicians who put their image before thier music. He could sell buckets and masks at shows and change his album covers so Walmart will sell his cds. ^that is what someone who is in it for the money does.I\'m stoked for this new sig guitar, I hope I can get one.
QuoteThanks for calling Gibson Customer Service. Gibson USA says that the Buckethead is due out in November. The MSRP has not been set yet. The body is 10% larger than a regular Les Paul. It is based on a LP Custom with multi ply binding on the top and binding on the back as well. They are white with ebony fret boards and the scale is 27 ½ inches long. It has open coiled pickups with white pickup bobbins and speed knobs. The guitar also employs the use of 2 "Atari" type buttons that act as a kill switch type of thing. One is located where the rhythm pickup volume knob is usually located and the other is located where the toggle usually sits. Thanks.
