...yes the GF has quite the honey-do list for me now.......make the most of your retirement...I am...
Prove it. or just stay quiet.Sorry, I just don't believe it! I've seen "sandy" and can dig through my photo gallery as this guitar is not what it is claimed to be and I will return with pics after I search my gallery. I read an article within the last few years, featured by a journalist writing for Fretboard Journal, an in depth analysis of several bursts, well known bursts, "sandy" among them, and that guitar did not shine in such a pristine manner, and the pups were covered, so I just don't see this as the real deal. Plus, a secret sum of purchase, just too many red flags, sorry but not convinced...Roger in Stockholm
All the way back on Page 1, I posed this reply way back in Oct 2019, mentioning that the current owner, Mason, had bought the guitar from TW.It did go to Taiwan. TW confirmed that in the other forum. Young guy there bought it. Would be surprising if it was for sale again so soon.
EDIT: Just saw where Mason (The current owner of Sandy), is the owner of the store in the OP.
Dose end one now how rear this is. It is a epiphone Les paul standard model limited edition Custom Shop made in China 2008 mahogany I thinkNo affiliation but nice pics and video. Original 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard 9-1228 "Sandy" being played at a guitar shop in Taiwan.
I saw the original Sandy in Tom Wittock's booth in Arlington and I thought it was a reissue too. He swore it was not and I was not to touch it according to it's little placard. And yes it looks like that. Scary.I am no expert but I agree Daniel on this. It looks pretty new to be an original 59. But for real...who the hell am I?!
