    WOW a 52 growing in the weeds !

    16K?? On the guitar is nothing original, the top is sanded down and if i see guitarpoint had they fingers on it, i would run away... i guess the all gold refin was done to hide brakes/repairs..

    Broken mirrors from Murphy Lab

    I´ve seen propably thousands of vintage guitars but never one with that kind of checking. And if so, those would be extremely rare exeptions and not the standard checking we all know and love (pics of your guitars would help).

    Secrets of a Vintage 1959 Gibson Les Paul
