Ad says " the serial # has worn off", and "pickups and body are original". He's getting it appraised. Judging by the pups and lack of serial # it might be an old gold top with a refin.

3rd gen chainsaw case.

And a Gretsch tailpiece. Don't know what it really is, but I like it.

There are filled holes for a stop tail, so it's not THAT old....IMHO..



Belonged to somebody named Rod Brown...

Has wings, and what looks like the remains a sticker under the name.

However, with that headstock size and stop tail config..

it could be a 56!!!!

What I like about the '50s Goldtop Standard is its resemblance to a '56.

I do like the guitar in the OP. I'd build a Neil Young "Old Black" Tribute out of it

I‘d buy this one...

Would love to see the top under that black top. Definitely looks like a 50s LP. Look at the logo placement...

This is worth about $10,000.
Even as as.
I hope you bought it. Otherwise this will be a sad story.

I pm'd, but no response. The ad was kind of bush ,so I think the person is considering their options. The ad may have been up for a while.

I don't have the cake for a "50 something" Les Paul, maybe someone here can partner with me to bring this axe back?!?

just dreaming.
