    Marc Bolan's Les Paul

    Does anyone have any info about Marc Bolan's famous orange Les Paul. I think it may have been a goldtop of some sort which was refinished. He also put a Les Paul custom neck on it when he broke the original. I think the guitar was stolen in 1977. I'd love to know where that guitar is.
