What the seller paid is irrelevant to current market value, but it's fairly easy to find out if he's the original owner. Those went for mid 4s (USD) back in 2012, and that is now 7 years ago, so between inflation, item depreciation, and item appreciation, I'd say fair market is still mid 3s...
Looking at trade offers for my 2017 Les Paul Standard. I will trade for something of equal value or more. Other LP Standards or Reissues. This has an assymetrical neck with Burstbuckers. Everything as it would come new. Honestly this has seen very little use since I bought it new.
Comes with case OR bag, lol..... looks like GC asked for custom parts bin models. I actually saw these the day they landed at gc and laughed..... part satin classic, part old standard, let’s give it a special name.
Up for sale is this EX 2014 Gibson Les Paul 1958 Reissue. There may be surface swirls or other slight finish imperfections expected of a guitar with very little but some use.
Finish: Tea Burst
Top: moderately figured flame and grain
Neck: one piece mahogany hide glue neck...
It's so interesting, your post is the first comment I have actually seen mentioning the 17s having a 60s neck. I always felt that was the case when trying them. I actually liked that year and neck a lot. GLWS!
