    Wish I had a place like that in my country. All they have here is one store that sells Yamaha (they make some good guitars though)

    Spoiler alert- I did watch the video; it talks about Les Pauls in general- nothing about this particular guitar. We all know they're valuable- there; I gave you the gist of the video.

    If you guys are gonna post a video at least put an excerpt of what was said in the article.

    As wonderful as their collection of guitars may be, Norm's Rare Guitar-videos never fail to annoy me by how obnoxious and self-aggrandizing their staff are.

    Well it's probably a very nice guitar, but an old guitar without a well documented background couldn't possibly be worth 250 k
