Gibson Pearly Gates LPs - any VOS ones left anywhere?
« on: January 21, 2010, 04:44:58 PM »
OK, I'm probably mental for even considering this, but does anyone know of any VOS spec Pearly Gates LPs left anywhere?  A quick Google has found me:

* Coda Music
* Andertons Music

I know Guitar Village has a signed/aged at 14k, but no VOS ones.

Does anyone know of any more anywhere in the UK???

No, you're not mad for considering it, it's a stunning guitar.  I also think that at 5.5k the one in Coda may be a good investment if Gibson is in the trouble that rumours will have us believe.  I was looking at the Coda one for a while but bottled it and bought a used 59 reissue iced tea burst instead this morning.  It is horny, and I can't get the same tone from any other guitar so I consider it money well spent.

I'll keep an eye out for one. You're not nuts though - if you want one then get one is what I say. If Gibson do go under you may never get another chance at a decent price (provided you find one of course)

You said you wouldn't get one this year.
You said it last night...

Ha ha - I know, Matt!  I do truly want to stick to my guns!

It's just Pearly - I love that guitar.  Just seeing what the options out there are before it's too late...

Go for it Dave - it's a great guitar. Was flicking through Rock n roll gearhead last night and as usual stopped on the Pearly Gates page for a while (and the La Grange strat)

But she aint Pearly.

It would be like the Ferrari 365 'Daytona' Spyder in Miami Vice, it may have looked like a Ferrari but it in fact was a Corvette based kit car replica. It may look like the real thing but deep down you know it's not.

Again I'll say bagsy the red Tele.

Ok, I've tracked down another one.  Seriously considering selling my motorbike to buy this:

That is awesome Dave. I would sell a motorbike in a heartbeat for that*

Easy choice for you then mate!  :lol:

That one is particularly good looking - the other two I found (at Coda and Andertons) aren't as pretty......

 :D

There will always be other bikes  :P. How many PGs are likely to come up in future at a reasonable price? It is very pretty as well. No pressure then  :wink:

I'd sell Dave's bike for that...

Seriously though, it is just a very nice Les Paul with some investment potential... IT'S NOT Pearly.

But I say if you want it buy it... and pay cash don't dream of borrowing on credit to buy it.

I'm sure with his new found luthier skills Afghan can knock you one out in no time at all.

And being sensible I agree with the cash not credit comment.

I can knock one out at the drop of a hat and do often...  :P

My point is if you get into a type of "feeding frenzy"

"Could Gibson go under? --- >So this could be my last chance--- >Oh can I find one?---->That was hard, everybody must be buying these up----- I better get it NOW & sell my bike later!"

Where's my credit card?

Sit back, take a breath and sell that bike first.  :?
