    You can buy only one guitar, 1999 classic or 2004 standard, same money both heritage cherry burst.

    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...

    1978 Wine Red Left Handed Custom: Overpriced or just right?

    I had a ‘74 custom that had separation of the top seams. Les Paul rule of thumb, it’s never ‘just the finish’. That’s a $1500 guitar tops.

    1969 routed deluxe

    Pancakes it’s is. A new photo which reveals a little more. I am guessing an early ‘70 at this point. Which now leaves little interest in it for me.

    1969 routed deluxe

    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.

    1969 routed deluxe

    What do you guys think this is worth? Story goes; 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.

    What Is This Goldtop?

    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...

    Norlin I.D. and appraisal help

    Funny, 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...

    2003 Gibson Les Paul Standard-SOLD

    Absolutely NOT a standard faded. The finish is typical high gloss and if I’m not mistaken, the standard faded started in 2005. The finish is lightburst.
