    Vintage+new Guitar collection-COLLECTORS ONLY-(widefield/fountain)

    Beginning of the year i lost the use of three of my fingers and unfortunately i am now unable to play guitar anymore, now wanting to learn different instruments. -COLLECTORS ONLY- I do not have the patience for stupid individuals whom do not know what these instruments are or worth for that matter. Dealers, kids, broke folk and spammers do not reply. calls only, ALL text will be ignored or dealt with harshly depending on context. show contact info if i do not reply you are not in the game. no trades of any kind, dealers look elsewhere

    1959 gibson les paul #90306 (make offer)

    Why the hell would you sell this on Craigslist?
    Lost his fingers, his manners and his mind I guess.
    I’d make an offer but I’m a stupid, broke and eternal kid.

    Sounds like an outright scam, doesn't it? Or someone who has too much time on his hands and wanting to rip callers a new one?

    Nobody who has the shekels would buy this without authentication, not at any price.

    Who owns #90306? Does the owner know?

    I'll meet HIM in a supermarket parking lot and count out half a million dollars reeeeeaaaaal slow.

    nice looking burst but when someone says "make me an offer" and it's a high value item, 90% of the time they are far from realistic on price.

    Well, the ‘55 fender “nocaster” in his ad is a steal.

    Seems like the guy posted the ad 2 minutes after knowing that he won't be able to play again !

    And I’m sure he meant 1950, not 1955.

    If it's really a 1969 Paisley Strat, it must be worth even more... because they never made any Paisley Strats in the 60's. Only Tele's and Tele Bass if I'm not mistaking...

    Serious, a collection like this should go to an auction house.

    I thought it was Tele. I never seen a Strat
