That is one of five '57 Alpine White Stingers produced.

Can someone do the monetary conversion to dollars for us?

That's pretty sweet. Throw some reflectors on it, change the plastics, and you have a winner. :thumb:

"White Gold Top", there must be something lost in translation. '57s were usually Gold Tops, probably over 90%. But, of course Gibson would change it up now and then. I've got a '57 Blacktop reissue(2007) but I"ve never seen an actual one from 1957. Do they exist? Who knows? It could have started life as a '58 but it's neck was too fat so they called it a '57.

I do believe too that in 1957 these were called "regulars", not standards (as opposed to the fancier "customs"). The term "standard" wasn't used until the 1960 model.

"So its 57..But looks like a Standard" - Not sure what you mean here. In 57 they made Standards and Customs. Standards usually came in gold; Customs in black.

The Music Machine Stinger Series had many non historically correct colors......ie, Iguana Burst, Firemist, ect... and, in this case, Alpine White.

To clarify, these are '57 RI Standards.

2 of these Alpine White Stingers had X large necks; 1 had a 59 neck; 2 had a 60 neck.

I have to agree with R9....if this guitar had black plastics and double black exposed pickups....it would be killer!

To my knowledge, the only Stinger Customs were SG's and Flying V's.

I guess cuz i wasn't sure what i was looking at..When i first saw 57 i thought 57 Custom Stinger but ofcourse this is not a Custom. Then i realized it is Standard of which i think 57 Gold Top. I was Snow Blinded with all that White. Then i came to the Conclusion i don't like it so now i don't care:laugh2:

Could someone, whom is good at Photoshop, please change the plastics to black and:
1) Pickups to double black
2) Pickups to double white

Thank you in advance!

....then, if I like one of the pictures......I may need some help from one of our Swedish speaking LP Brothers............
