• 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!

Current bursts for sale...

My GAWD 289K Euro -ca. 359K us $.
Even WITHOUT the issues with p.u. tampering & previous grovers, that price is steep for a '58 o_O
But nice example nevertheless..
Just to make that clear. It's 315K US$ - even when you posted it was $326K

Interesting take on values, last owner for 50 years, sold for £132k + 30% commission.

Makes a mockery of some advertised prices.

Changed hardware (wraparound tailpiece), refretted, refinished, extra holes. Seems like a lot to ask.

Top wrapped likely orignal tailpiece (change the strings... jeeze). Some oversprayon sides. Bigsby holes. No big whoop.

It's a wraptail style bridge altogether. It has holes for where the set screws would go to adjust for intonation. Not original to the guitar.

The Harrisons .......?
Was also my first thought, but the website also says Hank’s - isn’t that a decent shop?

I have noticed :

Denmark Street Guitars, UK
UK

"Denmark Street Guitars incorporates London Vintage Guitars, Amsterdam Vintage Guitars, Hanks Guitar Shop and Rockers."
"Contact name: Justin H "
..from the site "Vintage and rare"

So, mmh... who is who in TinPanAlley ???
Any British members can elaborate ?

Hanks Electrics, Denmark street guitars, London vintage guitars, AFAIK, in the end it's the same:
Harrison. 'nuff said..

Thanks for the clarification. they have a bunch of decently priced vintage gibsons and fenders on vintageandrare, and every time I’ve asked I get the same reply. «This one is sold, but I can find you a similar guitar». hopeless.
