I think that guitar has been out there for sale on their web site for quite a while. Maybe you could hammer them down a little.

I want a 1971 LP, Strat, or Tele. (Yep, I was born in 71)
They have a 1960 at Gruin's guitars in Nashville, it is priced at $185,000.
The guy took me up a private elevator with a code pad to the "special" room.
I will go back with a camera one day and share with you guys.

It's a great looking guitar but for that kind of money I'd like the original case too (or the correct period case).

Re: 1960 Les Paul Custom for sale!

Only a limited number of these guitars exist maybe a few hundred.Then the les paul line was discontinued. Many famous players used them in the years following them being discontinued.Everyone wanted them causing Gibson to start reissueing them in 1968. They have never got it right (disputable). But have sold hundreds??? of thousands of guitars on the reputation of those original 1952 -1960 gibson les pauls. They are the holy grail of guitars. Also 2008 was the peak off the boom in guitar value.It is just the price that they were going for at that time. That is the readers digest condensed version.


PS anything from recent production will never reach the values that the originals . IMHO.

Yes that is disputable. I would say it is primarily a " supply - demand thing ". Eg the lap steels that were built by the same luthiers in that alledgedly golden era, do not fetch crazy dollars at all compared to modern lap steeles :

Re: 1960 Les Paul Custom for sale!

Is this case original? Ive seen customs in black cases with yellow interior, this one is on the "cali girl" case. Did the 60s models came with that? Thanks for info.

Yeah. $120k is a 2008 price for sure. Bummer, as my LPC is now worth about half of what it was in those days, but I'm never selling it anyway.

I guess never should have sold my '68 Black Beauty. I paid all of $400 for it. Would have been a good investment.....;(
