"You want to talk heavy? Bill Kelliher’s riffs with metal giants Mastodon could just about crush prehistoric beast that gives the band its name. The Bill Kelliher “Halcyon” Les Paul takes its classic mahogany/maple foundation from this savage-riffing guitarist’s longtime favorite singlecut, and blows it through the bedrock with a pair of eviscerating Lace Dissonant Aggressor pickups, with push-pull coil splitting on their individual volume controls for authentic single-coil sounds. With the tone totally covered, this guitar drives home the looks, too, courtesy of a Gold With Blackburst finish, gold-plated hardware, gold speed knobs, a “Halcyon” hot-stamped truss-rod cover, cream binding, and traditional trapezoid inlays. The guitar comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case."

Considering picking one of these up. What are your thoughts?

Definitely not as pretty as the Golden Axe Explorer imo, but damn good on Bill for getting 2 sigs out of Gibson, even if they are both limited run stuff. He was also selling a prototype of this a few weeks ago with a black pickguard. I don't think I will be getting one with that price tag, though

Its cool, but wouldnt you be better of geting a normal LP and changing the pickups? Im guessing it would be much cheaper. Unless you cant live without the amazing “Halcyon” hot-stamped truss-rod cover!

I have to admit it looks amazing tho.

I actually have no idea about gibson prices, i just assumed a signature model is 50% more expensive, like they usually are.

This is cheaper than the new Standards they're putting out and without all the crap like the auto tuner, the horrible new signature, etc etc.

This band is the biggest bunch of $-grabbers around, KISS status. They regularly autograph their own stuff (CDs, posters, shirts) and put them on Ebay and the money goes right in their pockets. More about making money than making music. This is essentially a completely regular Gibson Les Paul with Lace pickups installed and a gaudy truss rod cover. Pass.
Custom guitars, vintage amps, boutique pedals. Blah, blah, blah.

It's a pretty basic weight-relieved LP with gold hardware. '60's neck profile (.800/.875), none of the 2014 or 2015 tack-on stuff (MinETune, funky 12-fret, strange Les Paul signature, etc).

That also includes a standard clunky neck heel, medium jumbo frets, 10-12" radius fretboard, rosewood, trap inlays, etc., and a set of overwound pickups with coil splits.

You DO get a stamped TRC that says Halcyon, which means Calm, undisturbed, peaceful, serene. As a Proper noun, it refers to a bird.

What, exactly, about this particular LP (out of the thousands of versions of them out there) piques your interest?

The question was for the OP, but you really didn't answer it, either.

Well whatever i liked or didn't like about it is irrelevant now because the 1976 Mint Les Paul Custom i've been eyeballing for 42 days had it's last day of auction today so i sent in a huge low ball offer and they accepted!! I got this bad boy on the way now!!!!
