Hmm this guitar seems like a really really cool guitar but I wonder how close to bucketheads it usually is. the things that I am wondering about are the pickups, I know people have debated that he uses DiMarzios which I know he uses XN2\'s on his KFC V but I wonder if he really uses Gibsons on his LP. The other thing that I am wondering about is that the Gibson one turns the tone and volume(or just 1) into a push pull pot, I never knew Buckethead had that.

I am guessing it is as close as he and Gibson could come to for a production model. Buckethead always seems to be tweaking this guitars and his sound. I am looking forward to checking one out. It would be a stretch for me to buy one at this point but....

It looks like an EXACT replica of his 2009 touring guitar.  Also, he\'s used the 496r/500t pickup combo before on his 22 fret white Les Paul.

Yeah! It\'s awesome looking. I\'d definitely want to play one first. The  27 inch scale length might be a  little weird for me. And the price is reasonable but it still might be out of my range. I definitely want to play one!!!

I forsee two problems here:

1.It\'s too damn mind bendingly awesome to not own
2.I can\'t afford it.

I think it\'s time I took up a job at a local fast food establishment to pay for this baby, I wanna get one before it\'s gone.

Ordered. Cant wait to play it, now if i can only get Bucket to sign it for me :)

Anyone wanna bet that a new cd will acompany the release date of the guitar?  
I\'m guessing it will be a really good album too...since he really hasnt released anything new for awhile..F/F and Needle are not new imo...

Quotethere\'s no way I\'m selling my bucket collection and no I haven\'t downloaded it, they are all "hard" legit copies.

I\'m just saying someone who toured with GNR can\'t honestly have cash problems. Someone like bucket has to be in it for the music not the dough.

I just wrote a blog called "transcending a gimmick" which speaks a little of how marketable he could actually be at www.slunks.ning.com - leave some comments on it if you like.

The boy has working hard for a long time, doing it his way and not selling out (breifly GNR perhaps) he deserves all he can get.

I\'ve been doing a little homework. The street price seems to be around 2600 USD and I found a place that will be right around $2k!! I wish I didn\'t need surgery!!!!

I never said I wouldn\'t buy a signature buckethead axe, I just thought he wasn\'t the type given that he had those custom jacksons which were never put into production.

He doesn\'t seem like the person to do such a thing, but I\'m not going to stop listening to his tracks because of this. In fact quite the opposite.

I forgot to mention that although on the surface it may seem to be purely a gimmick you need to look further into the Wikipedia article on bucket. It clearly states that he does it to avoid the hollywood drama that surrounds nearly every popular and non-popular artist. Can you imagine what TMZ would do to poor bucket? It\'s bad enough Joan Rivers took a pot shot a him.

I just love how these idiotic Hollywood fuckers stick their nose in everyone\'s business, evaluating Buckethead\'s "fashion" like he gives a damn.

Then again hollywood is known for this kind of thing so I wonder why I\'m getting bent out of shape about it. For example, Madonna diving right into Kabbalah her first year of "practicing" Judaism when it takes Rabbi\'s in training at least a decade if not two to even begin to study Kabbalah.

If only I had courage and a rifle...
