stopped by the local shop today and found a 68 les paul deluxe on consign.. the price seemed cheap to me even though its beat to crap.. what could this thing be worth (if refinished/restored or as it sits?).. anyone?
there currently one going on ebay for $4,999

so id say anywhere from 4-6k depending on finish, damage, weather parts have been replaced ect
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Look on Ebay see what they have been selling for.

If more than $3000, buy that one, put $500 or so into it, and flip it... Unless it's worth the 3 - 4k to you to keep it.
I'd buy it, keep it, cherish it. The way Gibson is now, it's a priceless gift to yourself.

You can't tune a LP copies down. Some kind of lawsuit Gibson won. Sorry.
It really does look like it's been put through hell, check it for things that could really screw with you, neck warpage, stuff like that. I think I read that as $1500? looks like a pretty good deal, oh and check the serial no and make sure it's not a fake.
