Hello fellow guitar enthusiasts, I have a chance to purchase a 1978 Gibson Les Paul Standard cherry burst for $1700. The condition is decent, pretty much what you would expect from a 30+ year old guitar. There is no cracks or significant repairs done to it. Here are some other relevent details: -it is stamped a SECOND -new Semour Ducane Zebra Pearly Gates -new Gibson brand pots -new 1/4' jack -new locking tuners -orginal case Overall I was impressed by it (actions, tone, sustain, look, and general playabilty) Its this a resonable value? is the fact that parts have been replaced lower the value? I have been hard pressed to find older les pauls in my area so I give them considerable thought when I come across one. Thank you greatly in advanced for your insight/expertise!
