So every once in a while I forget the fact that there's only one year worse for a non-1% Les Paul lover to be born in, having been born in '58. And I allow myself to muse about owning a '58 LP Standard. So bring me back to Earth - what's a '58 Goldtop player with original PAF's, maybe not 100% everything else, going for these days? Unlike TPIR, ranges are acceptable!

Bad way to shop. Find a good guitar instead. Be happy.

This one is in near mint condition and has outstanding history. It is a bit in the heavy side (close to 10lbs I would estimate). I picked it up and strummed it but was not able to plug it in. Crawford is a nice guy. I like the guitar. Too rich for me though.

To answer JT, I have seen 2 issue 58 gold tops sell in the last year. One was a refin with a minor headstock repair that went for 60k or so. The other was a top refin with a headstock repair and went for 45k. That is the cheapest by far I have seen.

This is more like what I'm looking to read. Mint ones are awfully nice, but unless there's an unexpected inheritance or a lotto win in my future, I'd be playing in the minors...

$80,000 will get you a clean 57 Goldie with PAF's and a mahogany top. EC. I know it's not a 58 (your birth year) but I thought I'd mention it.

Not a fan of triple pickups - but I do have a '57 Alnico that I love.

Does anyone have any idea Paul's 1958 GT sold for?

I just checked Elderly but it is not listed anymore & I know they were asking 100 Large for it.

:cheers:
