i have a 1983 Leos 59 i have to part with, anyone have an idea of what i can get the most for and where to sell? ive never sold anything on Reverb before or a guitar on ebay that was worth more than $1k. The only one i see right now for sale has been on reverb for a long time with a broken neck im gonna post some pics i have right now then tonight im gonna take apart for better pics any constructive help would be awesome, if nothing else, im sure i can get some experts to tell me whats what, thanks in advance...

One more pic needed--closeup of the front of the headstock. Also recommend (for pics) to either remove the pickup cover, or replace the other one.

To my knowing Leo should have an into-the-wood-staped number in the control cavity...

There are sooo many Pauls for sale, I have to come up with some major $ to add on to my garage(new studio) i was hoping this would put a good dent but im gonna take it to bare min of stuff which means, 1983 Avri 57, 1971 SG, 1968 Custom Shop TriBurst Reissue and a couple of squires etc all going up on? Ebay an i guess its time to try Reverb too...or if I win lotto tommorow, i can give these away and get real deals;)

I had L1 009 made in Kalamazoo,.... I had to sell it many years ago in 1988,... Wish i had never done that:facepalm:... Most of the first runs went to japan,.. around serial 200 were made for the US market,... Extremely nice guitars,... the Les Paul Model script on the headstock was rather close to the Gibson logo,.. more so on these than the other prehistorics of this time frame. I can't speak for the entire run but mine was an outstanding player and had tone to die for,... miss it dearly. What would make you want to sell this?:dunno:

Edit: Ah Ha .... a new studio.... well i would keep this and find money elsewhere:hmm:
