I'm thinking about selling my 1977 Les Paul Custom and wondering what I should be asking for it?

It's marked Second on the back of the headstock and only real issue is there is a small piece of the truss rod cover missing at the bottom screw. Other then that it's in great condition given it's age.

$2400-$3200 depending.....

nice piece......I would think you could reasonably get $2800 or so for it.

What case do you have for it?

This has very little wear to the gold on the bridge and pickups, for its age.

Seems like this would get $2,500, so you're right in the neighborhood you'd want to be.
I'm not sure what you call the case but it has 4 latches on the front none on the back

that is the correct case.

I agree with @Who ....anything in the middle range should be a reasonable deal for all parties, $2500 will certainly move quicker than $2800.

Put it on Reverb for $3600 like all the other delirious sellers. More seriously, that thing is flat out gorgeous. The market is soft, so you might have to go as low as $2500, but $3K is very reasonable given the condition and the fact that while it's not truly vintage, it is old. Lots of people consider that period to be a good one for Customs. Nice job keeping it so pristine. I love worn gold, big time.
