i got this as a gift and i don't know much about its worth. the year is 2005
its been repaired you can see in one of the pictures it was completely broke in half at the neck and was repaired. i don't know who or how it happened but this is how i got it. i was told that it had also had a lot of peices replaced and changed like knobs.
has a custom jbl pickup at the bridge. what i would like to know is how much can i get out of it

You should be able to get $800-$1100 for it, those were $3500+ guitars when they were new IRC. The broken neck drops the value a lot

$800 is generous

Not at all, they sell used for $2500-$3200. The neck break looks like it was fixed by someone who knew what they were doing. I wouldn't be supreised if TS can get $1200 for it

Agreed, that's a very clean repair, and it's not as if it's uncommon for a Gibson to have a neck repair. I think Robb's price range is fair, though I'd keep the guitar for that much money.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

Great guitar, don't sell it! As for the repair, practice a lot, then get famous, then always say in an interview that the broken neck is a vital part of your tone! You'll then see millions around the world breaking their LP necks in hope of replicating your tone, Gibson will introduce a model with a factory-broken neck, eBay will have a lot of scams claiming the neck was broken when in reality it wasn't.

Dude have you tried the new Gibson Neckbreaker 2014 edition?
Do you feel like I do!?

Probably the best way to check if it's genuine is by cross referencing the serial number. I'm sure there's a section on the Gibson site giving you the first part of the number, or telling you how to read it.

thanks for the replies, also does this look like a real les paul or a fake one?

Hard to tell for sure from those pictures, it looks promising but the Supreme was/is one of the more commonly faked Gibsons. The fact that it's (allegedly) older helps, fakes in 2005 were a lot more easily identifiable than they are now. If that guitar is really from 2005 it is probably real.


Pictures of the back and of the input jack area would be helpful, the Supreme used a rather unique control cavity layout where the electronics are inserted from the side rather than the back, so the back of the guitar should have no control cavity plate on the back and it should have a much larger input jack plate on the side. The back should also be flamed and bound. If the side plate is large, you should be able to take it off and check the electronics, too. Or you could pull the pickups, they should have the Gibson logo on the back.

To the post above me - anyone can fake a Gibson serial number. The serial number is a good way of getting information on a guitar you know to be real, but should absolutely not be used to spot a fake.

it turns out its a fake, the globe says suprome and the globe part doesn't match at all to the ones on the gibson site. not sure what to do with it other then take the jb pickup out and sell that

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

What do you mean? The globe looks just like a real Gibson globe. Does it actually say "suprome" or was that a typo?

Can you post a better lit/less blurry photo? And Roc8995's checks are definitely a good idea.
