1960 Les paul for sale

A person in my area is selling an original 1960 les paul for 12,000. He doesn't seem to know anything about it says he got it in vegas. I am going to go down there to see if everything checks out. On ebay 1960s are still selling for over $100,000. I will take lots of pictures and will be posting later tonight.

It's a classic with the 1960 on the pick guard.

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

I know. I am making a sarcastic prediction. Wouldn't it be funny after he had driven out there, it was a classic?

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

I have seen one picture and I will post it here when I get home (at work right now). It appears to be a standard sunburst finish, as far as it being an R7 that is always possible.

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

Here is the one picture I got. I am looking at it on a better monitor and its slowly starting to look too new to be an original.

Like Greg noticed...right tuners.

It's be nice to get a serial number...don't even need a pic for that. A pic of the case would be nice as well.

You guys mean the double rings? Good eyes.
They do put those on Reissues too, though.

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

I notice that the only picture is at the same funny angle as the $29,000 goldtop I found in this thread please help identify this goldtop... That's just the right angle to not see the giveaway details about a true vintage LP.

And it turned out to be.... a Classic.

And the tuners looked right on that one too...

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

There are plain top R0s... That looks like the first G0 finish, whatever they called it... Unless the angle is screwing with me, the cutaway isn't round enough to be a Classic.. Betcha it's a G0.

Re: 1960 Les paul for sale

I'm beginning to think it may just be a 1960 VOS and not a reissue at all. Waiting to here back from him with the serial number and more pictures.
