Gibson Historic 2003 Les Paul '59 Reissue, Brazilian Finger Board, Faded Tobacco, 9lbs., Reissue Certificate of Authenticity, Case Candy, Un-played mint condition, small scuff on bottom of case.

I emailed him, asking why the price is so much? My '62 reissue strat isn't worth anything close to that and he gave me this:

"A reissue is created for a historical significance of an instrument, sound, electronics, and musicians that play them. That being said, in 2003 Gibson vowed to never use Brazilian rosewood in their guitars from then on due to it's scarcity and Gibson's environmental friendly philosophy. Check out Gibson's website for background and Reverb is a good website for pricing."
My Gear:
-Fender American 1962 Stratocaster Reissue
-1984 Marshall JCM 800 2204
-Ibanez Wh-10 Original
-Boss DS-2 Distortion
-Boss CE-5 Chorus

Brazillian fretboard, the 03 guitars with Brazillian and the Gary Rossington SGs that have Braz boards go for a significant amount more.

It's not a normal R9 basically...

You're probably just looking for a normal used R9/R8/R0 with an Indian/Madagascan rosewood fretboard.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

The Brazilian fretboard makes it worth more, but not that dramatically. When I was buying my Taylor, the sales guy also brought out an acoustic they just got in used that was the same price, even though it was used, because of a Brazilian fretboard. In my experience, it adds a few hundred onto the guitar, maybe a thousand at absolute most depending on the quality. This is just some guy trying to take advantage of it.

$11,500 for a used, 11-year old Les Paul is absurd, even if it's Brazilian.

The evil laws of kapitalism dictate that there is a positive correlation between scarcity and expensiveness
You who build these altars now

Nope, the Brazillian board is why its that price and that's within the correct price range for a Braz R9 from 03. It adds more to the Les Pauls cause thats the only run thats had Braz like the original 50s Les Pauls since the originals

There's plenty of acoustics with Braz and not as much desire but that's the only run so therefore it's much more scarce.

Go on www.mylespaul.com/forums and look around on there, you'll see that it's fine and the guy selling knows what he's got and how much it's worth.

I don't personally think it's worth adding that much to the price for Braz but the market dictates.

For that price I would have Gil Yaron build me an EXACT replica of a 59 Les Paul. He is one of the world's most sought after builders when it comes to vintage spec Gibson LP's.
#23
he's not on crack with the price.

he may be selling it to buy crack though.

i mean, it's craigslist.
