Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
It's a cool guitar and im sure sounds great but its way overpriced IMO. That's getting closed to 57/58 Goldtop money. In fact I played a clean 56 over here in the UK a few weeks back which is alot cheaper.
Yeah nice guitar, but with 1 big issue...............................................................................: the price.
Wonder if they think that because it's in that book justifies a $40K premium?
Definitely the joints of the three parts maple top showing.
The one going under the bridge and tailpiece has the finish chipping along the edges due to the heavy checking but doesn't seem to be separating. The other one going between the pots looks to be be separating, but not the full length, only in the control compartement area, as it is quite thin in this place and not glued on the mahogany back. Not a big issue IMO.
But the price is nevertheless ridiculous.
On posted guitar the only thing I would be concerned about is price , three piece top cracks don't make these out to be some other imperfection , this guitar would have plenty to say if it could talk , don't pick apart or critique this poor beast it's been used like a government mule now being pimped by some greedy S.B.
It's a very exspensive guitar for all the action it's seen the imperfections are nothing unique .
