This was featured prominently in a couple of the articles on Gibson's bankruptcy as a "high point in Gibson's history". Possibly one of the classiest guitars in history.

?American Sniper? Les Paul By Gibson Custom to be Auctioned

^Yes, that is Gibson's actual work. :lol:

From the second article.

"Apparently he was shooting at some insurgents, and his friend reached down and picked up three shells, brought them home and he's had them ever since," Montana said. "He sent me that - I got this package and I opened it, and it was like goosebumps, chills. I was like, 'Wow, Chris Kyle fired this round in battle. This is a piece of American war history.'"
Just in case you need to see it again.



You may think your tone is good, but how many insurgents has it killed?

The main problem with this premise is that if you're spending that much money on a guitar, there better be a certificate of authenticity that that bullet killed an insurgent.

"One of three shells that possibly killed an insurgent" isn't good enough.

So, it should come with a death certificate? It could be like one of those Sponsor a Child commercials. "Your guitar will come with a picture of a violent Islamic extremist who's life was heroically ended by Chris Kyle."

Well, I don't know if the certificate could read that, we don't actually know if they were an Islamic extremist, they looked like one though.

Is the truth really a barrier here?

That looks like the perfect guitar to start my stolen valor core band that is a more douchey version of five finger death punch. we arent going to even beat around the bush and dress like a moto cross guy and various trailer trash stereo types. we are going to dress like the village people and play songs that suggest we may have possibly at one points in our lives could have been in the armed forces

Was it? I kept forgetting I had it in my queue, did they have the part in there with him shooting looters from the roof of a gas station during Katrina?
I have no skin in the game here, I just enjoyed the film. :lol:

I looked this up and Snopes says that didn't happen, so I'm not sure if you're kidding or if you bought into some bullshit somewhere.

if this guitar is real im offering a $50USD stolen valor core mod on any guitar you own + shipping and handling. I have plenty of 9mm and 44 special spent brass to go around. I have a hot glue gun and too much time on my hands.
