Tell Me About these Gibson LP Studio and Standard For Sale

What am I looking at here guys? Is this a $1200-1300 guitar new?

Looking for overall opinions for the value of equipment listed here and the upgrades as well. The private owner ad looks legit and I can drive to this one.

Thanks

All I can say is that he's asking far too much money.

Okay so here's anot her one that just popped up. What do you think of this deal? Looks like this is maybe a $500 guitar new? This is a 2009 model. Thanks

Man, you guys are cheap... $800 for the Gibson isn't that bad. I'd probably offer $600 but settle at $700.

Yes, that epi is $500 brand new and the equipment he's trying bundle with it is fine if you're a beginner but if you already have a decent amp it's junk you'll never use.

Those Epis go for $250-$300 around here, not to mention GC used. What is it with CL these days and people inflating the prices?

I think the CL sellers are getting so used to the lowballers that they're just putting the price high to prepare for the "negotiations."

Generally speaking, ignore the "value of the upgrades" and never pay extra.

In fact, I'll usually pay more for a guitar that's entirely original than one that's been "upgraded."

I've seen too many guitars with pickup leads clipped off three inches from the pickups, with lousy solder jobs, shorted pickup wires, with pots that have been damaged by too much heat, with screws that live in stripped holes, with loose strap buttons, "tilted" pot shafts, cracked knobs ("these were really tight to get on for some reason"), lost pickup springs and more, to ever consider changes that have been made to most guitars "upgrades."

I have one guitar that was advertised as "all original" and by that the owner meant that he'd taken out all the "upgrades" and put the old pickups and pots back in. When I got the guitar, the middle pickup was shorted out completely and the wiring was a sad, sorry mess. I tossed everything and put in brand new to factory spec.

That Studio has been messed with and the gouge out of the fretboard is a turnoff. In the US that guitar was around $900 new (1200 or so in Canada).
