    It does look like a giant tooth! He can write it off his taxes.

    I'd like to hear the "amazing story" about the "major recording artist". Maybe there's something there, but he's not saying.

    Every guitar I own is one of a kind and I record crap all the time maybe I should see if someone wants to pay $175,000 for one.

    Is it just me or do the frets look like garbage for ‘dead mint’?

    Oddly, I can deal with the $175K price tag, but that additional $200 for shipping really gets to me. Loosen the purse strings. I just paid off your mortgage and you can’t throw in free shipping?

    yes, apparently it's this guitar:

    The Famous PRS Explorer Made For Billy Gibbons
    This Is Definitely The Nicest PRS Guitar I Have Ever Played !!!!
    Notice It Has The Tune O Matic Bridge That PRS Normally Never Uses

    Looks like the company above will replicate it on order.

    Guys it say “make offer”. I’m sure he’ll take $136,000 or lower the shipping if you ask!

    The frets are pretty much covered by the white finish applied to the fingerboard. As SecretSquirrel says it was made for Billy Gibbons, and as Lonn pointed out it's Paul Smith's variation on all those Deans Billy and Dusty were using back then.

    The price is overly ambitious, even for a one-off made for a famous player - particularly for a guitar that as far as I know was never in a video, never used on a record or never used on-stage.
