    MLP done dirty and declared DEAD!!

    The fact that MODs are bashing me for saying there is little activity on this site makes me regret ever paying for a premium membership. I come for the Norlin section of this forum - there is little to no activity there.

    Anyone have a LP Spotlight Special?

    Fun fact - 4 of the 5 went to the same buyer. The mint condition one was separated and sold off to Hong Kong as a Pregnancy Present. I tried to buy the other 4 back shortly after selling them, but the new owner would only sell them for the price he paid, but he gets to keep #2. I passed on that...

    I finally found out what the CM standa for in some model names

    I finally did find a photo with Chick Magnet on the box - but yes, if that story is true it was originally meant to be Chucker Mod(el)

    Realistic value - 1974 Red Sparkle Les Paul Deluxe

    If restored to original and no headstock repair - $5k will sell it without too many troubles. You can ask and get much more but it will take longer to sell. It would cost less than $1000 to restore it to original so even at this condition I'd have no problems paying $2500 for it

    Realistic value - 1974 Red Sparkle Les Paul Deluxe

    If you don't buy this - please let me know. I'd be very interested in restoring it back to original and documenting this rare guitar. I like blue better... but red is more rare

    New line up is here!

    Just to clarify - The mark was caused because the screw was drilled crooked when mounting the bracket on the edge of the guitar. The whole pickguard sits crooked and low because of this.

    NGD: WARNING - Painted Over Content

    I had similar thoughts about the one I owned. The aging job was questionable, but man - it played fantastically and had great tone! Enjoy yours!

    NEW__Epiphone DC PRO

    Based on the deal Music Zoo gave me on that guitar... you 'might' be able to ask for a hardshell case paying full 599 retail price or get one for just $60 more. The strap lock system seemed similar in style to how the Schaller ones function, but the buttons still seemed to work fine with a...

    Gibson Goddess

    At that price they are basically giving it away for free. I sold a purple one in mint condition for $3k. Even my more beat up ones sold for 2-3x that price. Great deal even if the headstock is repaired! Go buy it! haha The Goddess series is a cool one for Les Paul and SGs. I've documented all...

    Gibson Marauder 1981

    They are fun, quirky guitars. I don't think you'd be able to live with one as your 'only' guitar, but definitely worth having around. They are not a hard sell at all - if priced right. Even without a case, as long as it is in decent shape, the one you're describing is a steal. Asking prices are...

    1980 Lefty LPC Case

    That first case was used along side the chainsaw up through the mid 80s. Some features varied from the mid-70s version (as pictured) but, in my experience the 80s versions are sturdier. Yes, that's the blue sparkle. Awesome guitar!
