I did some research a long time ago on Black Beauties and ended up seeing something about how original ones can run up to $80,000. I just looked into it again because my dad told me he used to have an original '68(3 pick ups and everything), but was unable to find any info. Is my memory playing tricks on me or something?


lol this basically stems from it being my dream guitar after seeing Mr. Rhoads holding one, then my dad telling me he had one that he sold for $175

it depends on the model, a '58-'60 sunburst les paul standard is worth way more than a black custom.

That $175 was likely more than it sounds. Remember inflation.

Well, if he sold the guitar the year he got it for $175, in 2008 that would be $765.41. Still not quite as much as a brand new Les Paul...
