    Here's a cool thread....

    Bursts for sale are pretty few and far between up here. I remember a '58 for sale at Ring Music in Toronto in about 1982 for $5k(approx $4k US) if I recall correctly. It was pretty beat and faded. I thought it was a gold top at first. Anybody else from Toronto remember that one?

    57 Junior Purchase help

    Not a 3/4. The neck joins the body at the 16th fret. A three quarter neck joint would be at the 14th fret. My bet is a replaced fingerboard, it looks too flat.

    57 Junior Purchase help

    Looks like it only has 20 frets and the rosewood board has been cut short or replaced. Twelfth fret has one dot in the centre? Bridge and knobs don't look right either.

    Need some info on 53 conversion

    Make sure you check the back of the headstock very closely. I see a faint darker line right above that little chip in the finish which could be a repair. Also, it's on consignment so they may not have much room to move on price. Good Luck !!

    Does anyone have information on Steve Jones' 1954 Les Paul Custom

    This is not the guitar in question. This looks like a 70's Les Paul Standard with the wide binding in the cutaway and nickel keystone tuners.

    This is cool. You can see the duplicate serial numbers between '66 and '69. Also, where are all these 1966 SG TV Models that are listed? :wow:

    Goodbye to my Stepson and a new old friend.

    Karma works both ways and you sir just earned a point in the plus column. Looks like your gesture could be a turning point for your son.

    Where are all the vintage plain tops?

    I find it hard to believe that anyone would re-top a clean but plain '58 to '60 Burst for a new flamed top. Wouldn't the refin detract from the value as much as the flames add to it?
