Re: Vintage 1959 Les Paul for sale!!!

but do you really think he will get 300k for that right now

I know a like 3 or more years ago they were going for 400k but it seems like 200k is the standard right now.

Thanks for sharing! But $300,000 for a guitar! I know that's not the highest they go for, but wow! But if someone's got the money...

I think their rating of 9/10 for this guitar's condition is a little optimistic, personally.

Not "optimistic", but more like "overzealous".

Re: Vintage 1959 Les Paul for sale!!!

This guitar must have been kept in a vacuum to keep those tuner buttons so clean for all these years, they look like the ones on my guitars they are so clean and bright.

Awesome top and back for sure.

Re: Vintage 1959 Les Paul for sale!!!

There's few, if any, things I would give my left testicle for. This one is a real thinker, hahaha.

I love PhilX -- enthusiastic player with some chops. I enjoy watching him enjoy playing, for sure.

Worse yet, the thing has my name written all over it. Wherever 'PsychoCid' is not available, 'PsychoCid976' has been my next go-to for the past ten years. Same as Rosie Leas frettedamericana stock number. =)

The flame and colouring on Rosie Lea make it my dream 1959 LP. I don't care about the original solder being there - she looks and sounds as close to perfection as I could get in a 59. If I win the lottery tonight, I am all over this one

The price they asked for their vintage guitars, they are selling is quite high....
This LP has been there for long time now.

Any issue is bad, but I'd say broken solder joints is lower on my list than broken headstock or even refins and oversprays.
