Hey bucketbots i really need your help. I have been trying to find a place online where they sell the Buckethead signature les paul that is shippable to Hong Kong and so far I have not yet had any luck. Can you please help me?

musicians friend still has it up on their website.  the guitar has been discontinued.  good luck.

I haven\'t seen any official notice that its been discontinued, though a lot of talk aboot it....

Do you have a source for that info?

when i was looking for one, my local guitar store told me that they stopped making them. i guess that doesn\'t mean it\'s official though. i guess the best way to make it official is to call gibson

see thats the problem. if it is available it can\'t ship to Hong Kong, but if it can ship to Hong Kong its not available.

I just got an idea, if you have the money could you send the money to one of us, we buy the guitar, ship it to our house then ship it to you.

ilikeheadcheese you may be the most honest person on the planet, but would you trust someone with 2-3 gees. of your money. wouldn\'t that be nice though if society was that trustworthy no disrespect, very thoughtful.

if i were you, I\'d find a US Guitar Center that has one and call the store directly to ask them to ship it to you.

OR, depending on how badly you want it, you can buy it directly from the store and use a freight forwarding service like Rock It Cargo http://www.rockitcargo.com/content.asp, they pick up from wherever and ship it directly to you. It\'s expensive, but definitely reliable. I use it all the time to ship film from overseas.

thanks guys i realized the difficulty in getting it. I have found someone who has the original ones made (the first ones), but it was through the internet and i didnt really trust it. This is the link: http://www.sikaudio.com/guitars_sikaudio.inc.php

QuoteStill widely available


It has NEVER been widely available.  None of those links you\'ve listed have the instrument in stock.  A year back it was a major pain in the ass to secure an order of this instrument, it took me 6 months of constant searching.

I see that a lot of places are claiming they\'ll have them in stock soon, but I call BS and would be extremely surprised if Gibson makes another production run.  The arrival dates are constantly pushed back.

OP - unfortunately your best bet at this stage would be ebay.

There are three Guitar Centers the the U.S. that have them in-stock--Indianapolis, Manhattan, and San Antonio.  According the Guitar Center website, this information is \'approximate\' and last updated 12/12/2010...  if they really do have it, you probably can have them ship it to a store near you.  

I e-mailed Gibson customer support about the availability of the guitar, future or otherwise.  I have yet to receive a response.

Received a response from Gibson customer service today.

"Thanks for writing!  Unfortunately, this model is no longer in production or available for order.

Thanks for the inquiry, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Best regards,
Benton Cummings
Gibson Customer Service"

I found it slightly ironic he signed it "Best Regards."
