    Chuck Berry model, correct? You're paying for the name, like all "signature" models...

    A Wes Montgomery L5 or Tal Farlow model is way cheaper.

    My brand new 2018 Tal Farlow was $4600.00. Only $10K more for a Chuck Berry model.

    that's a steal.....Gibson is stealing your $
    I can't imagine even the biggest Chuck fan coughing up that kinda coin.

    Chuck is a little more famous than Farlow so the price is a little more important.Can't wait for the $34.500 Presley Dove Signature ;-)

    I heard from someone who'd know, at one point -in the US anyway - the usual terms were $20,000.- -cash - - and the closest parking place to the stage door for the El D. he'd be driving.

    Now it's interesting !

    Perhaps I'll keep the Zuni Sun God bolo tie and get rid of the guitar...

    That is sweet but I feel my Peerless Sunset gets me 98% of the way there for quite a bit less $$$. Of course it’s 24.75” and has humbuckers, but still—the latter can be changed if needed. It even has a similar bridge and tailpiece.

    Seriously, that size factor is great, and too bad Gibson can’t put out something similar at a more down-to-earth price. Though I guess there’s the 235, which lists at $1800.

    Ridiculous price. I used to own a 1992 Gibson ES 350t. Same guitar but with the longer 25.5" scale. Nice guitar. Bought it used for under 3k.

    The blurb says 1.687" (1-11/16") nut. Weren't the originals a tad narrower?

    So we have a very short neck on a full 17" but narrower body. And a regular neck on a small 15" but narrower body. Seems kinda ass-backwards to me.

    I just noticed in my own post above that this one has a spruce top.

    There was an original 1955 ES350T for sale in Paris for 6K a few months ago.

    12K for a new one is just insane.
