    For sale here is this beautiful, all original 1956 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with its original four latch Lifton case and guitar strap. Clean, lightweight (8lbs 5oz) and resonant, nice fat comfortable neck, screaming P90s, what more could you ask for? Oh, and you can see some flames under the gold finish. :yesway:

    No cracks, repairs, touch-ups or other issues. There are a few small scratches and dings here and there, but nothing major. There are hardly any buckle rash on the back. Light greening on the gold finish and some checking that runs vertically. The neck is straight and free of any twists or warps. The original frets has almost no wear with plenty of life left.

    Asking $42,995 FIRM. No trades. Message me or email directly to webmaster(at)mylespaul.com for any questions.

    Nice. Most boutique stores have similar Price. I have been looking at a similar guitar at another location for same price. Is there an advantage to people who are users of this site for posting guitars? I am just really a novice when it comes to member listings and pricing as I fail to see the upside. I am under the impression that when an item is listed on this forum that it is intended for the " fan" that plays and admires vintage Gibson's. pure collectors I would imagine are not the most intended client when listing on a players forum? I am just trying to get an understanding of the so called ground rules when it comes to "the client/buyer" perspective. I would think full disclosure and transparency from potential buyers position could be advantageous to the process?

    First off, you may want research the OP.:cool:
    I don't think transparency is an issue.
    This site has seen everything from boat paddles to bursts listed here.This is a well traveled website. Like most vintage guitars, the asking price looks like a starting point. Ask questions......Looks like a beauty to me. But I'm just a gawker on this one.

    I meant transparency on my end ( buyer/player). I wanted to know if there are any guidelines for me NOT the OP. I am concerned about proper etiquette in terms of post content. Meaning i am coming from a players view not a collectors. the two may differ in approach thus reflecting price. I have purchased my vintage Gibson's from frettedamericana and David Brass has been great to deal with, especially since he is in California and I am in Florida. For example, when someone lists a price can a potential buyer say they think it is a little high and offer openly a different price? Moreover, would it be a different set of guidelines if another potential buyer says they are a collector and would like to add item to the collection? Does a seller have the ability to say that they would prefer a certain item go to a potential player over a collector?

    Instead of offering a price within the forum, click on the sellers name and send a private message. That would be proper forum etiquette.

    Wonderful guitar BTW.
