If anyone has ever wanted to see a Burst that hasn't faded, then here is a perfect example of one. I don't think you could get much more mint then this, still has tags on it and everything. So damn beautiful!

To be honest, the whole "roughed up" image of a vintage guitar is what makes them valuable to me. I wouldn't ever buy a brand new looking vintage guitar for that price unless it had been rocked by Jesus Himself.

Money would be better spent on buying a Les Paul Supreme (I've seen gorgeous bursts on those, much better than that one) and a pair of handwound PAFs. And you would still have enough to buy yourself a house.

^ Exactly, i might as well buy my own custom shop one along with every single piece of gear i'd ever wanted. The faded finish is what makes it so great, it's what gives it the nostalgia and style.

yeah. not really impressed. it's pretty, and cool it's in such good shape. but that thing better drive me around, make me food, and launder money for me for the rest of my life for $375,000.

i'd much rather save about $374,000 and get myself a decent guitar instead.

He most certainly could. Those be the Holy Grails of guitars. Sometimes, they go for more then twice that. Collectors and proffesional musicians with money, scoop them up.

A very nice vintage LP but $325,000.00. I find it odd the finish looks brand new. You never see LPs that old that have no checks in the finish at all it could be the camera didn't pick them up but still I think it's about three hundred thou over priced.

So not worth it. You could buy a god damn house with that money....


It's even dumb when you see guitars start to go over $2000. For christ sake it's just f ucking wood.

If only the guitar had the same strings as it did when it came out of the factory would it be worth something to me

The whole point behind a 1960 les paul standard in mint condition for $325,000 is because it's a piece of history. Especially now that Les Paul's gone. It's not meant to be played.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

It's not like Les Paul hand built the bloody thing. Guitars were meant to be played not adored imo.

The funny thing is not all vintage guitars are good. At the last guitar show here in Boston I tried a lot of over priced vintage guitars and truthfully a lot of them just sucked. When people started buying vintage guitars as investments it caused the vintage guitar prices to skyrocket. I know two guys who collect that do not even play! Guitar prices are like everything else the fluctuate depending on demand and economy. Ten years from now that LP could be only worth ten grand or could be worth the price he's asking.

I would rather buy a new top of the line Gibson custom shop and use the rest to buy a decent house with an awesome studio in the basement.

I could see if the guitar was owned by Les Paul or had some proof of historic significance otherwise it's just a mint a 60 LP plain and simple. It's just not worth $325.000.00.

I have a Les Paul 25/50 Anniversary LP in C10 condition with Les Paul's sig nature and pics to prove he signed it but it's still not worth much more just because he's gone.

There are people out there with more money than brains who probably will buy the thing and put it in a case and look at it from time to time because if I paid over a third of a million bucks I would be afraid to touch it! One chip or god forbid you drop it it's not worth crap.

Everyone is missing the point.

Of course it doesn't play any better than the guitars of today. Manufacturing techniques of today can create even low-end guitars that play as well as midrange and high-end guitars of the 60s and 70s, when guitars were made almost completely by hand.

The tonal difference isn't THAT noticeable either. Sure, he aging of the wood is impossible to replicate, and so you can never make a guitar sound like a vintage Les Paul (or any 60s-era guitar). But that's not worth half a million dollars either, right?

This guitar is a piece of history. It was made before the vast majority of you were born and still has the original tags on it. The trees in your backyard have younger wood than the mahogany that this guitar is made from. When a rich coin collector buys a Civil War half dollar for thousands of dollars, no one says anything. But when a vintage Gibson sells for hundreds of thousands, everyone goes nuts.

There's "overpriced" gems in every field of interest, from cars to guitars to coins to postage stamps. Take a Ford Model-T for example. By today's standards, it's scrap metal. It has 22 horsepower and worse gas mileage than a Bugatti Veyron. The leaf springs are completely worthless compared to today's modern automotive suspension. The car had no power steering, air conditioning, or liquid cooling. Technically, it's a piece of junk. Yet, people rake in up to $100,000 for them.

Gibsons were individually made by hand back then and no two guitars are alike. Chances are most of you won't ever even see an original '60s Burst, let alone a '59. Just appreciate the damn thing instead of bitching about how over-priced it is.

Personally that thing does nothing for me. If you'd posted a picture of a beaten up old Les Paul that looked like it had been played and loved for its 49 years of existence, right now I'd be writing a massive speil about how amazing it looked.

That guitar looks like it's sat in a case for it's lifetime, unloved and collected, never being shown a purpose, and as such, kind of makes me sad
