Need HELP finding my 1974 Les Paul!!!

Hi all,

1974 Les Paul #489174 came to me with pieces missing and a cracked headstock. I fixed it, sent it out to be refinished and set up and then not long after, I sold it because we simply needed the money. Things are better now, I'm playing more, and I'd love to have the opportunity to buy back this guitar that is special to me.

Here are pics, it might have been refinished by now but it will definitely still have the maple splines I put in to reinforce the headstock break. The rebuild included Kluson tuners, Tonepros bridge and tailpiece, and Seymour Duncan humbuckers.

Thanks for the help! We can do this!! lol
