“Have it shipped to you for $10”
"Appraiser's Description: The guitar in the photographs is, in my opinion, a Les Paul Model manufactured by Gibson in Kalamazoo, MI in 1954."
The appraiser never saw the guitar in person.
Not on me.
>implying it is the job of the police to hold your hand while you do your Craigslist swap and shop
I PM'd him and told him to consider taking it to Norman's Rare Guitars. What a maroon...
Oh come on. Lots of famous musicians and wealthy collectors are looking for vintage instruments on the San Diego area OfferUp. I'm sure Joe Bonamassa, Steve Miller, or Paul Allen will be happy to meet the seller at the El Cajon police station parking lot.
It may take Paul a while to get there. He died a year ago today!
What's likely to happen is someone arrange a meet, then no-show, and proceed to follow him home and later burglarize his home.
This is what auction houses are for.
Most people who have $30,000 on hand have it because they don't buy things like that.
I don't know much about Gibson guitars... why would such a valued guitar have a non intonatible bridge? Other than the set screw to change the angle, that is.
Reverb says !!!!..... https://reverb.com/price-guide/guide/801-gibson-les-paul-1954-goldtop
The 54 Gold Top had a wraparound. It didn't get a tune-o-matic until 55.
Paul Allen achieved success by not letting such trivial details get in his way.
That's interesting. So the '54 is actually an inferior guitar from my perspective.
From a technical standpoint, yes. But you could say the same about any product that benefits from technological advances. At that price, however, it's about collectability not superiority.
Oh yes, I understand that the whole deal is about how collectable it is. And yes, I prefer modern finishes to nitrocellulose lacquer, and big stainless steel frets to vintage nickel-silver frets.
To answer your question Corn, noneya! Haha
The seller claimed they were not interested in trades. That was before they heard about a couple of my Squiers. I hate to part with 'em but gotta make hay while the sun shines. I should have a NGD post soon. If I can come up with $10 for shipping.
