Music is food for the soul. Well, what if it’s a rich man’s soul? Then the instruments need to ooze out the same charm and royalty. And keeping that in mind, a limited edition Gibson guitar has undergone 24-carat gold and adding Swarovski crystal makeover. All this for a mystery Brit-celebrity client from Monaco, thanks to a skilled craftsman from Glastonbury! Graham Baker literally stripped down the Gibson Zakk Wylde Bulls Eye before covering every inch in gold and finishing it up with gold plated strings imported from Germany. The maple neck on the guitar will also have its frets plated in 24-carat gold. The instrument will have 4,000 individual Swarovski crystals, each with an exact 4-mm diameter.
The entire cost for this modern piece of vanity-art is estimated at around $24,345.
