Ted playing his 59 in this 1987 video


Thanks, I forgot about this one. He mostly played his Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion semi-hollow for most of this show and also a Paul Reed Smith. He used a Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion semi-hollow for most of the early to late 80's and PRS's from the mid 80's through the Damn Yankees tours.

After Damn Yankees he brought out the Byrdlands again, other Les Pauls, and a tiger striped PRS for 'Fred Bear. 'Since this gig was close to where he lived in Michigan at the time he may have brought the 59 from home just for this show. I am not sure if he had the 59 out on the rest of that tour?

Actually he is playing the 59 about a minute or two into 1988 as this is the New Years Eve Whiplash Bash and the count down to midnight is after the song before 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang' Here is the set list from the show below and the whole show on YouTube.

lookin thru some of the les pauls the back of the headstocks are marked "SCRAP"..given to ted by gibson for stage dressing :(..

How much ya think a SCRAP gibson LP is actually really worth? says 1000 to 2000 bucks.
I think I would fark out a few grand for a SCRAP LP owned by Ted bec thats about that I could afford is his SCRAP

minimim bid on the 59 is 125k ..ouch to start with!!!

I wish they would put more description to these listings. This is as safe as buying on Craigslist.

.

Ted shows and talks about a few of his guitars here. Not sure if any cross-reference with the auction, but he has a 58/59 in here. Some fun history of his early days playing.

Can anyone speculate in the video below if this is either the 58 or 59 up for auction? It's hard to tell if it has the same tuners? It looks like he didn't have the current type of volume and tone knobs on this one if indeed it is one of the 2 up for auction.

That's his '59

Did I read somewhere Nugent got one of his Paul's from Billy Gibbons?

Those PRS's are cool!

I'd love to see more detail pictures of the bursts though...
