    Thanks. It’s really tempting. The comments by the previous owner I found were really useful and confirmed what I was thinking. If the economy was t crashing and all the dumb shit going on around us I would take the plunge.


    Thanks, I’m being careful. I know it’s not a fake since a previous owner saw the pictures I posted via the Les paul forum. He knew the guitar on sight and gave me the serial number. His remarks were a mixed bag. He said it sounds killer, has no breaks but it is not all original and is heavier than stated....over 8 pounds. I appreciate your counsel. It’s something to consider.

    I fully understand the allure of the choice vintage wood / PUs...That guitar 'is' worth 2 drools.
    :drool::drool:
    5 grand is a lot for a non-returnable guitar.
    You could buy the 59 brand new re-issue for that much. And choice of colors.
    I donno about you dude, but that honeyburst sure looks sweet to me....

    No.

    I posted it because, IMO, it sounds like a quality guitar.

    It's my attempt to ad my opinion to this forum.

    And, it's not a flippant attempt.

    Why did you say it's a toy. yuk?
