At one point, a sticker lived on the front of the headstock. When the sticker was removed many, many years ago, it took the "Les Paul Model" silkscreen with it. There is a bit of overspray on the face of the headstock, which was done a very long time ago as well, and has checked nicely over the years.
More likely the front of the headstock was refinished because of the break? Sticker + overspray? Sounds odd. They don't show the front of the headstock in the pictures.

She's got a beautiful top and this headstock repair looks very minor, so I don't know if this is overpriced ... but I am not familiar in this "high class vintage market" and it's daily exchange rates :dunno: .

It's not worth $180K...my buddy thinks it's worth closer to about half of that figure. Who knows, but it seems overpriced to me.

Man, it is gorgeous. May not be 180K of gorgeous, but I love that late 60 tomato soup look.

It always cracks me up to ask $180,000 and not be cool enough to throw in the shipping cost as if the $180,000 wouldn't cover it already. I guess people can ask and pay fortunes for a guitar but the guitar is still the same one they made that year meant to be sold for a tiny fraction of today's cost so even if I was rich and could afford that kind of price I would never spend it on a guitar. My $1250 LP Traditional Plus in Desert Burst more then fits the bill of my holy grail.

the last 1960 LP i held had a top that had changed from cherry to a kinda pinkish fade...this top looks brand new?Not questioning legitamacy here,just thought it would have changed/faded more by this time?....curious question.

The color is 100% legit IMO. It is my favorite version of the Burst finishes. Looks very much like my friends' 1960 Burst which has been played a lot over it's life.

From the auction:



my friends 1960

Uh, no. A '57 Custom w/ PAFs, w/ or w/out Bigsby, w/headstock repair ain't worth $180K. Certainly no '60 w/headstock repair is gonna pull $180K. I can see maybe $75K-$80K (not that I can afford that either, so I'll just toss my opinions around while I drool...).

Good luck to the seller---and why isn't he PLAYING it? I don't SELL guitars! I acquire them and then I play them---and you'll get 'em from me after I'm in the ground for at least 24 hrs! I mean, it's like people and candles: I'm not the kinda people to put it on the mantlepiece and say, "Oh, gee, doesn't that look lovely!" I buy candles, I burn 'em (usually at both ends and sometimes from the middle...) and then I buy new ones. Guitars are to play, babycakes! Trading is for Wall St weenies and baseball cards---

Guitars were intended for a higher purpose... The Blues!

(Tha's my story, an' I'm stickin' to it...)

Think its a nice example with good flame and typical mid/late 1960 color... The headstock is way,way far from a deal breaker. Having said that, the guitar is way overpriced. Every 'burst its different , so is every sale. No way to actually know what its worth , but rest assured the asking price won't be met any time soon.:cool:
