That's a very fair price, in my opinion. Try it out before you buy it though, obviously.

Edit: ^ It's not a Les Paul, the model name is The Paul. It's a different guitar they produced for a short period. It's a fair price for that model.

That does seem like a very nice deal, but, as everyone else has suggested, make sure to try it out.

Oh, I didn't know that. Is a '79 The Paul worth less than a '79 Les Paul?

Yeah, they were aimed to appeal to a different market. They were made 78-82 and are pretty sweet, especially because you can pick up a great guitar for not so much cash. Worth keeping an eye out for

I think these were pretty cheap and not really that valuable, but still very nice guitars. If i found one i could afford i'd definitely go for it.

There's a small chance that one of these gibson "the paul" models floating around in america rightfully belongs to Andy Partridge from XTC. It was stolen in 1980 while they were on tour there.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Almost bought one back in 1987 for $500.00, picked up an old Hagstrom for $350.00 instead. Nice guitar for the money these were the precursor to the Les Paul Studio except they didn't down grade any of the electronics, just a bare bones finish.
I suggest checking ebay and compare the prices then make the guy an offer only after trying it out to make sure there are no issues.
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

Yeah, it seems like it's the equivalent of the modern day studio.
I say if he's throwing in the case, just do it.
Make sure it's legit though.

This thread proves Gigatiran is awesome, and a lot more awesome than your average awesome. I bet he even owns a duster like Dennis Reynolds.
