Members HanSolo Posted March 2, 2010 Members Share Posted March 2, 2010 One of my clients is LavaLite LLC the makers of the iconic Lava Lamps. Their CFO knew I was a guitar guy so he showed me two custom built Gibson promo guitars they had made years ago. Lava commissioned Gibson to make 5 Lava Lamp Guitars at a cost of $6,500 each. It was basically a single pickup guitar shaped like a Lava Lamp and custom painted dark blue with orange free-form blob spots on the body. Free form orange pearl inlays ran up the fingerboard. The top half of the body was a dead-on, flying V shape so Gibson must have used a flying V blank for the body. The body was very narrow like a lap-steel guitar. The neck and headstock were from a Les Paul Std. with a plain black 3x3 headstock, inlaid Gibson script and an engraved commemorative plate. Two of the five remain. The other 3 were either raffled off or given away. One was supposedly signed by the original members of Lynyrd Skynrd and raffled off with the proceeds donated to charity.
