I saw some on eBay selling used for a lot less than the price you quoted. Yo may want to surf eBay.The guitar I always coveted but will never own is a Gretsch White Falcon. They should be everything I hate about guitars - flashy, over the top with loads of bling, but there’s just something about them I like.
Trouble is I have no real use for such a beast and certainly can’t justify the £2.5k they cost so unless I win the lottery and have unlimited cash and unlimited space it’ll stay a dirty dream.
Nice guitar.At the moment if I imagine winning a Lottery and going to a big guitar shop to buy anything I want, what pops into my mind is one of those well made custom shop sunburst Gibson LPs.
Since the 1970s a 'real' Les Paul has been one of those unobtainable things 'if only I had the money...'

When you dream, you dream big, dude. I wanted to say the Esteban guitar, but I didn’t dare even to voice the thought.

Weazel I had an SD CURLEE with the( I believe) first DiMarzio pickups in this country. Made by Randy Dritz and Sonny Storbeck,later made in Japan and Korea.Maple neck and a dark Mahogany body. Mine was made in Chicago.
Gretsch White Falcon - Billy Duffy Signature model if we're being picky.
I like that the Duffy sig model is a stripped down, less flashy Falcon. That has always appealed to me , along with the combination ️of the chet arm with the V cut bigs. If I could find one for about half of what they go for, I'd def pick one up
Yeah I know shipping is horrible. I have ordered things from the U.K. With the same outrageous shipping charges attached. Why can’t our 2 countries work out some kind of agreement. ?Not in the UK.
Cheapest I saw was maybe a little less but in the US so add silly money for shipping plus taxes and import duties.
And to me the point is I do covet them, but realistically I’m not going to get one, not just because of the cost.
