    1975 Les Paul Deluxe - Victim of 80’s Body Modification - What’s it worth?

    The case accompanying that guitar is the best version of the Protector series. IMHO, the best case Gibson ever sold.

    Thoughts on this 1971 Gold Top- help?

    The pics below are from the Gibson web site and intended as a pictorial reference for what typical Goldtop Les Paul’s look like: The OP can compare what he/she has bought to these pics...and see what he/she wants to see. Respectfully, Mac

    NGD 4-digit '58 Junior

    My 4-digit 58 Junior with sharp edges has the narrow fret wire. I received mine as a husk that had been stored away after stripped of hardware and finish (except serial number) back in the 60s. Mine has the vampire bite marks of soap bar screws in the pickup cavity.

    61-62 Les Paul Jr with mods, project guitar

    FYI...if you are looking for a project guitar. I have enough to keep me busy and I thought someone here might benefit. Overall - not a bad starting point for a husk with original finish - has amateur routing to install a humbucker. Check the pricing...it's close to fair market value. Guitar...
