Street price for Custom 68 Reissue?

Hello everyone, my co-worker is selling me his Gibson Les Paul Custom 68 Reissue (black) guitar and a Tri-Burst. His asking price is $2500 each. How much is it going for now?
Also, what is the verdict on this custom shop reissue? Thanks!

Here's my 1997 LP Custom I bought recently. Gave her a nice setup and She plays really nice.

Nice guitar. Why don't you check completed listings on eBay to get an idea of what they're selling for?

I recently picked up an aged authentic 68 RI for $2100... It's a great guitar!

If you really like your 97, have you considered getting something other than another humbucker Custom?

What about an R4 Goldtop or R4 Les Paul Custom (alnico and p-90)???

Just a thought.

Another option, for the price that you intend to spend on both of the 68s together (sounds like you are buying both), you COULD get a real, slightly issued early 69 or 68 LPC.

Thanks for the response guys. I am really not looking to buy both but I wanted to buy the ebony one for the purpose of good guitar investment.

I do not have any price idea on the LP custom unlike the R8's and R9's.

Or maybe I will be looking to get a 2001 flamed R8. That's a good year for R8s.
