It had a professional refinish at some point but I bought it at Gruhn and have the appraisal listing any mods.
It's a fantastic guitar but I never play it.
$3800 and shipping or possible trade for some gear TBD
All info available on serious inquiry.

You should have this listed in the member classifieds forum, and according to forum rules you must list the price or @LtDave32 is gonna lean on you.

Sorry I didn't know if there would even be any interest.
Should I take it down and repost?
I have it on Reverb for $4200, I paid $4500 for it a few years back.
It appraises at 3800ish according to Righteous Guitars in Atlanta a couple of days ago in an unofficial appraisal which is what Gruhn has on the official one that's a few years old.
I would sell it for that. Or trade for a very nice 50ish watt combo + $ and/or a decent strat
It really is an outstanding guitar.

Ok, so pick a price and post it here.

$3800 sounds fair.

It's still old wood. Looks like a re-fret and you said a refinish. If the P/Us are original, I think the price is pretty good. My wife doesn't agree with me. I gotta look at this stuff while she's at work. :)

GLWS! :)

I'm a buyer not a seller. I'm not enjoying this a bit. Not trying to pull a fast one in any way.
It's not all original but it's not $15,000 either.
I bought it because of the way it plays and sounds.
And because I always thought they were about the coolest guitars ever.
But I'm a strat player so it sits.
If nobody wants it I'm fine with that.
I was just going to buy a nice combo amp with the money anyway. :)
Thanks everyone for being nice.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your sale. I just got my '59 Special back from restoration, and she smokes! Great way to enjoy a vintage LP without breaking the bank (or your back)!

I wonder how the 1959 date came to be....I am guessing he is including the pots when he says all hardwear has been replaced??

but George knows more than I do, I promise you that......

it is a nice piece, I wish it were a single cut.

I don't think the pots were replaced and the pickup that was replaced appears to be from the same period.
While playing and switching between pickups there is no "oh wow that sounds different" and the aging on both is not very different /shrug. Someone will buy it or I will keep it.
