Some guy wants to trade me a 1979 Gibson "The Paul" for my 6 month old Fender Am. Standard Stratocaster. I don't know much about "The Paul" so, my question is: Is this a good trade on my part?

Just because it's old, don't think it's gunna be worth loads.

Do a swap for a month, get used to it then decide. It doesn't matter how expensive either guitar is. If you prefer the Les Paul to your Strat, then why not trade?

the only 70's "the paul" i could find that sold recently went for $780 on the bay.

an american standard strat sells new for about $900 and used for roughly $700-800 if you are lucky.

that said a bunch of other stuff comes in to play with "the paul".
1 - any repairs?
2 - any modifications?
3 - condition?

if it's in good condition and plays fine etc...
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Thats what I'm trying to figure out from him right now. He just said that the original T-Tops in the guitar were replaced with pickups from a les paul studio, and it doesn't come with a case. I'm no longer interested. Thanks guys.
