    Condition = Very Good

    https://reverb.com/item/10333911-gibson-les-paul-jr-single-cut-1958-burst


    Reverb cracks me up :laugh2:

    I guess it's 'very good' when compared to one that's snapped into two pieces? :laugh2:

    lawds

    even one of the headstock wing-tips is broken off,..but the condition is 'very good'.
    I know when I get ready to buy a $5,500. guitar I want it compared to 'old underwear' in the ad description. WTF? :laugh2:

    jeeeezz

    It's in the book The Modern Era of the Les Paul Legacy 1968-2009 by Rob Lawrence the asking price would be like asking $40k for a Standard Historic ... not really based on reality ....

    I sent him a lowball offer. See if he takes the bait. lol

    Why, I even mentioned that he can swing over and let me try it at my place, and I'd have my Line 6 warmed up.

    I have my response already prepared..."That a Chibson?" :laugh2:

    I hope you're not serious, otherwise you are the problem with CL.

    Maybe he added an extra zero by mistake?

    I'm not big on flame, but it's a handsome guitar, and if its provenance is accurate, 10k would seem a decent price (assuming the extra-zero hypothesis is true).

    Obviously the price is ridiculous but the guitar is beautiful looking, I'm betting we see some more crazy stuff come out of the closet with a pending bankruptcy

    the guitar was a special dealer order for a more accurate , at that time, Les Paul, other dealers ordered them also. Strings & Things, Jimmy Wallace, Leo's Music and Norman Harris. Strings & Things ordered four runs of six, from Kalamazoo between 74' to 1978 .. vintage finishes were done by Tommy Stinson ... retail, new, in the seventies was ..... $1,500.00 beautiful wood, but overall probably a lot less accurate then a 2016 True Historic.

    I thought this too. Second thought was "good price". Oh well...this IS a guitar board after all.

    I'm too chicken to try and sell a $1,000 guitar on CL because of all the crap and the safety issues. He's going to meet in an alley for $100K ?
