    So, aside from it not being a cali girl case, what else is obviously questionable?

    you can read in the appraisal from Gruhn that there are things not being correct (tuners, nut, refinish, and ink based upon the tiny pic that the Gibson logo is not a 50ties logo )
    + the fact that he states in the appraisal that it is based on Pictures only so basically worthless if you want to prove it is a real 58

    I fail to find any merit whatsoever in Mr Gruhn's practice of offering these "appraisals". They are in essence more exclusion clause than anything else.

    They literally aren't worth the paper they are written on, a fact clearly stated by the thing itself.

    That's the cheap ones, like $25. He will do an authentication for a lot more cash.

    That dark area along the binding by the pup selector switch is nice.

    Reverb seller is real piece of work. Insisting case is Cali girl because of the color.

    If a burst in that condition really existed it would be known by now or have a real complete back story with photos, original owner....

    IMHO
    Cheers,
    Les Paul Deluxe was my first serious guitar, age 16 yrs old purchased out of a guys car for $300 (pounds) in 1980, Leeds UK.
