Re: Bonamassa Gibson LP BonaBurst Registry serial # "JOE B XXX"

I'll leave mine on for now ...  big_smile
My next LP will most prabably be a Goldtop .. probably a R7.
I must say that the JB aged Goldtop, which there is about 200-250 (?) of, does interest me as well.
Are all of them sold ? Is eBay pretty much the only way to get one ?
Pricerange around $3500-4000 ?

In the states, two have showed up recently for 3k, both sold, which is solid deal if you're willing to pull the trigger immediately smile.  I think another went for 3500 (Music Zoo?).  There have been a couple of others in the 3800 range but I think are still out there.  Just depends on how bad you want one.  I believe in Europe they're going for more, if you can find one.

Re: Bonamassa Gibson LP BonaBurst Registry serial # "JOE B XXX"

well, i took the plunge and am now in love with my first (im sure there will be more to follow) Bonamassa signature model - Bonaburst #35!

was worried about the weight relief and BB 2/3 (only have really had experience with solid, BB1/2 historic reissues) but just let my ears and hands decide for me - no surprise, its my new favorite Lester...AND that includes an aged JP #1 that i thought would never be knocked out of its perch!!:)

two special shoutouts:

1) joe, the 'extras' were just an extremely thoughtful and awesome touch - completely unexpected and just added to the whole experience.  I thank you!

2) guys at wildwood (especially Lance) are just awesome.  i tried an acoustic from them earlier this year and it just wasnt the tone i was looking for - no hassels or anything when i promptly returned it.  really made me want to give them my business and the Bonaburst was the perfect opportunity for both of us.

NOW, if they would just get a Gloss CAB Bonamassa I could double down!:)

These guitars are just crazy good & I have owned countless guitars through the years.  Don't know what it is about these guitars but the stars lined up right when they made these.

Re: Bonamassa Gibson LP BonaBurst Registry serial # "JOE B XXX"

Proud owner of JB 31 here! I just received it from the great guys at Wildwood today. This is by far the most beautifully sounding Les Paul I've ever heard besides Joe's! I'm totally digging the pearl red inlays on the neck and it's beautiful "Bonamassa Burst" color. I could not possibly be happier with Wildwood's service and the guitar itself. I'm loving everything including the case and certificate of authenticity. Does anyone happen to know if the case is actually signed by Joe himself, or if it's screen-printed?

He hand signed 1000 Epi's so I have to believe these are hand signed as well.

Thanks. That's what I would think too, but I wasn't positive.

The certificates are signed personally by Joe. The signature on the guitar cases are silk screened.

Nice!

Re: Bonamassa Gibson LP BonaBurst Registry serial # "JOE B XXX"

Hello fellow Bonamassa Bursters! Does anyone know what gauge the strings are on the bursts? I know the Goldtops have 11s. I assume the Bursts are the same, but they feel as heavy as the 10s on my Strat. Maybe it's because they're wrapped around the bridge?

I believe 11's by default, but wildwood will set it up however you want it.
