They are both great choices.
I had a 2003 standard that I sold for a 2000 classic but sight-unseen, I would lean toward the standard because the pickups are nicer in my opinion, the flame top is a plus and the 2002-2005 standards are the last of the non-chambered/modern weight relieved...
I’m still waiting on more photos.
One thing that has me concerned is the small ‘mark’ near the upper-left corner of the neck pickup ring.
That is the location where a tack hole from a goof-hider ring would be.
What do you guys think this is worth?
1969 Les Paul deluxe routed with ‘72 embossed humbuckers, stripped paint, replaced tuners.
Anybody have a guess of the market value?
Sorry for the pics, not mine.
I don’t believe it was a 50s or a no-binding 52.
The photos are horrible but if you look closely it appears as if the fingerboard binding came off. It looks like moisture damage on the fretboard.
The inlays look like late 60s and the white nylon saddles are definitely 60s.
The top carve looks...
Forgive me if this is not in the correct forum,
Local metro detroit craigslist ad for an old goldtop.
What do you guys think?
It old and looks like moisture has gotten to it.
kinda looks like the binding came off.
After seeing the pickup cavities, my first thought is not a Gibson.
Not because I recognize them as another manufacturer, just for the fact they don’t look like re-routed deluxe cavities.
It appears to have vanished from Craigslist so I guess it will remain a Norlin unsolved mystery...
I meant $1800 not $2800.
Still too much but I am looking for help putting a year and value to it.
Didn’t late 69 have a volute?
Those pickup cavities don’t look like routed P90 cavities...do they?
Here’s one that has me stumped.
No Made in USA stamp
Has headstock repair
Closed o and b logo
6 digit serial number starting with 8
Plugged switch hole between volume and ton knob
Routed for humbuckers?
I’ll let the pics...
Perusing the local metro Detroit Craigslist tonight I came across this.
Thought it was a unique color and somebody here possibly might be interested.
No affiliation with seller.
