FS: Collector's Choice 1 - Melvyn Franks Les Paul

I have a deal going with a local store. As a part of it, I have my choice of the two CC1 guitars they have. I have no intention of taking delivery, as I need more cash and fewer guitars right now. Yesterday, I took them to shoot them in my studio and got to play them for a couple of hours. They sound friggin amazing! But I already have what I need for the moment, Les Paul-wise.

Therefore, I am presenting both here.

Price is $5995.00 plus shipping. These are brand new and come with a full warranty.

Next two posts will show each.

If you are interested, please let me know...

Bob

Re: FS: Collector's Choice 1 - Melvyn Franks Les Paul

Bob...nice guitars...#070 would be my choice too.

So...are you selling both guitars or sending one back to the dealer and selling one?

Have you got any news about when the 'aged' version is coming out and how much money that they will be?

Re: FS: Collector's Choice 1 - Melvyn Franks Les Paul

Both guitars are at the dealer's right now. Just across town. Both guitars are for sale, but I need only one to sell to satisfy the part of the deal I have going with them. I don't know about the aged ones, but based on the retail of these being $9,174.00, I would think the aged ones would retail in the $15K range.

Re: FS: Collector's Choice 1 - Melvyn Franks Les Paul

Wow... #70 is the epitome of a vintage-looking LP for me.


Too bad I bought a bunch of other expensive stuff recently...could have picked it up. I'd have nothing else...but hey, that's a fine guitar.

Absolutely haunting.
