    Anyone watch Pawn Stars on the History Channel? It's about a father, son, and grandfather that own a pawn shop in Vegas. On today's show someone came in with what he thought was a 1960 LP, but they called in the "expert," and he verified it was a 1970-1974. Pretty cool show.

    Man, I'd be sick. Poor guy thought he had a $25k guitar, found out it was 'only' worth $3.

    yup, it would be a rude awakening if you thought you had a 1960 all along....

    And even if it was real, it may be worth 25 grand, but that pawn shop's gonna give you 10k for it.

    Watched that as well. Ended up being a 70-74 Custom....Not quite what he thought he had. Glad that he decided to keep it. Wise choice.

    When I saw the headstock I suspected, but as soon as I saw me some pancake goodness I knew! Sucked for the guy, I hope he never payed 1960 prices for it.

    I wouldn't sell it, and I'd play it till the neck came off!

    Do you remember what bands the guy said he played with? He said he toured with Triumph, but I can't remember the other one. :hmm:

    Yeah, I guess he could've been in an opening band or whatever, but I refuse to believe there people that ignorant when it comes to Les Pauls. :laugh2:
