1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

How much would a 1969 Goldtop Deluxe be worth? It's in pretty decent shape considering the year, it has the original mini-humbuckers and looks like a pancake body.

If that is all original... $5k or so. One piece body would be worth a bit more. Only one picture though?

I got a reply back from them with some other pictures, but the whole things seems a little sketchy to me, waiting to hear back from them.

Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

Total Scam, this is the reply I just got from "her"

"Hi,

Currently I'm out of town, I got the opportunity to open a small bussiness in Plymouth.

Here is how I want to go about delivery and payment for the product which will be through DHL and will also give you the chance to inspect the product before I receive the payment for it.

I will put the product in DHL custody. They will take care of the delivery. In order to start the official transaction, I need to know your shipping information ( full name and address, phone #).

With the informations you'll provide me, I go with the products to them, they will inspect it and then that they will contact you with an invoice concerning the condition of the products, the shipping details and payment methods.

After that, you will make the payment for the product, and send the payment information to DHL for verification. DHL will verify the payment, and if everything is in order, they will deliver the product to your door step, and you will verify that everything is as supposed. An DHL agent will hold your money untill you receive and inspect the products.

I will give you the chance to inspect it and decide either you keep it or not before i get paid. If you decide to keep it, they will release me the funds, if not, you will have a complete refund within 3 days, with no expense. I will pay the transaction fees.

Tell me if that is ok and I will wait your shipping details in your next mail.

Thank you for the great collaboration !"

Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

Tell them you have to play it before you buy it.

Tell them you have cash but will only pay in person.

If it's 900$ even for a newer Deluxe then it's a good deal.

But it looks and sounds like a scam, so.....

DONT TOUCH IT !!!!!!! this is a well documented scam used in the car world too , you advertise your car and some guy claims they will give you your full asking price but then wants to bring a carrier into the deal to collect the car without the purchaser ever seeing it , same deal only in reverse if you like , you still have to release funds to a courier etc , SCAM,SCAM,SCAM , GOOGLE scams and you will find pages on the popular ones , this one is on there in some variation somewhere ! You will note there is no mention of a guitar in the reply you got!!

Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

Whoever said US$5000 is about right.

I have seen less for refinned and grover'd (much less when otherwise fiddled with); more for the 'closet classic'. But $900 is a joke, or a scam.

Smile Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

Hi,
It is so funny that I read this forum. I saw this guitar advertised on Kijiji for Hamilton Ontario and honestly asked the question is that a correct price. Here is the reply:

Hi,

First of all, thank you for your interest in purchasing my " 1969 - Gibson - Les Paul - Deluxe Original Goldtop " looks good for a nearly 40 year old guitar.

No cracks or repairs. The price I am asking for it is $900.

I am selling it at this price ($900) because I lost my job and I'd rather sell my old guitar at a reasonably low price now then lose my home.

If you are interested in purchasing my old guitar, I am waiting for your reply.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

R Dunleavy.

Well abviousely this is a scam. I did asked him for pictures though. Lets see the answer. Everybody knows the price of this guitar if preseved OK. Many people would jump on it even for 3500$.

Steve

Hi again,
Here is some update. They sent me the pictures. Here is the link:
http://home.comcast.net/~music_garag...DELUXE8309.jpg
I guess it is a common trick to fool you. I answered that I am interested and would like to meet. Lets see the answer. By the way I found the same add with the same picture in Craig's list for Ottawa. Funny isn't it? I will keep you posted!

Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

yeah I got the same link with the same pictures, too bad it isn't real, it looks pretty sweet...

I followed along with her little game and said I'm interested, and it's gotten to a point where I got a "fake" email from a DHL rep with a fake tracking number asking me to go to a Western Union and wire them the money, yah OK! lol...... what a bunch of bullshit. I wish these scammers would just get a life...

Re: 1969 Goldtop Deluxe Value?

It's a genuine gtr, but a scam.

From one of the pics, you can make out the serial. Does anyone know a means of posting the serial in a 'beware of this scammer' type of way? Would be good to do that here, and on other Les Paul forums.

The real owner probably does not know that pics from Ebay or somewhere have been used in the scam.

I also went along further and received the fake DHL mails. I copied all of them and send them to the Police in London UK online. If this people operate around there andthat might help.

We Are smarter than these scammers. Who do they think they are talking too. We own Les Pauls owners RIGHT? Dumb scammers.
