    The highest (known) Serial Number Les Paul.
    Possibly the last Burst made.

    Stunning Burst Artie. Thanks for posting the pics. Appreciate it.

    :wow: :wow: :wow: :thumbs: :applause: :applause:

    Hope it is a good one.

    Looks almost similar to my mate’s ‘60 Burst that he sold to Joe B. (Two Suster / Aussie Burst).

    Cheers, Rudi.

    I thought Corey's 1964 Burst was the last original ever made? :hmm:

    .

    Gibson says they didn't make any Les Paul Models in '61, so this is obviously an SG.

    A half million dollar guitar with a heel repair, yet not a single pic of the back of the guitar in the Reverb ad.

    Let me check my bank account.

    That top is so rich in color compared to most late 60 bursts.
    I wonder if it was a special order?

    It's quite visible in person. Goes from one side around to the other. Looks like the back of the neck was hit hard, and the heel separated / split from front to back. Sort of like snapping a match.
