Yeah he did... I got it at Cowtown Guitars in Las Vegas. The guy said Paul offloaded a bunch of gear to him before he moved out of Vegas. I went to the Racer-X forums one day and saw that he was telling the truth (Paul had posted a comment in a thread from the guy at Cowtown stating that it was true). From what I already know, the guitar was either built or customized for Paul as a gift or something. There aren't any others like it around, however it plays and sounds like garbage... the action is a mile high.... but it's just something interesting to own : )fettouhi said:The jem looks classy . Did Paul own that thing on the right?
Yeah, it had been hanging on the wall for a long time. If anyone had seen the case I think that would have been the clincher... it's bright orange inside : )jemaholic said:Cowtown? I thought I saw that guitar over at that honest, truthful, wonderful establishment owned by the Dark Lord, Red Ed????
Cool :grin:.Knightmeir said:I wrote Paul about the guitar and here's his reply:
Thanks for giving my guitar a good home. Here's the story behind it: I was doing some guitar clinics in America 10 years ago and one of the stores I visited gave that guitar to me. Someone who worked there had made it using their own "Gilbert" brand, but when I came to visit, they thought it would be appropriate for me to have it, since my name was the same. It is one of the strangest guitars I've ever seen, and of course, I like strange. The tuning key protector is my favorite feature. Enjoy!
How effing cool is that? I wrote him on Friday, and got the reply that night (but wasn't able to check my mail till today).
