Anyone watch Pawn Stars on the History Channel? It's about a father, son, and grandfather that own a pawn shop in Vegas. On today's show someone came in with what he thought was a 1960 LP, but they called in the "expert," and he verified it was a 1970-1974. Pretty cool show.

Man, I'd be sick. Poor guy thought he had a $25k guitar, found out it was 'only' worth $3.

And even if it was real, it may be worth 25 grand, but that pawn shop's gonna give you 10k for it.

Watched that as well. Ended up being a 70-74 Custom....Not quite what he thought he had. Glad that he decided to keep it. Wise choice.

When I saw the headstock I suspected, but as soon as I saw me some pancake goodness I knew! Sucked for the guy, I hope he never payed 1960 prices for it.

I wouldn't sell it, and I'd play it till the neck came off!

Do you remember what bands the guy said he played with? He said he toured with Triumph, but I can't remember the other one. :hmm:
