if it is a gibson it is a nice guitar, and has good quality
if it is from the 70's it might possibly be worth more due it being older if it is in mint condition
also it think if you look on the head stock it below where it says les paul in gold letter and it is writtien in cursive, it has this black plastic plague if you will saying what kind of les paul it is (custom, standard, classic) right before the nut of the guitar

meh, I'm not envious, I don't like the colour+binding effect on a Custom.
Those '59 Reissue LP's on the other hand are the shizzle!

To threadstarter: That guitar is probably worth caboozles!! You need to get it to a guitar shop and get them to instruct you on how to clean it properly, and learn to take better care of that instrument, coz its vintage man. You could probably fetch several thousand dollars if you cleaned it up.

BTW: That is a very nice Les Paul
#38
Well it doesn't look like it's in that great of shape, but im sure if you buffed it up a little it'd be beautiful. Can't go wrong with a custom Les Paul.
#39
ok so i bought this guitar for like $250 (used (from Guitar Center) ), it says Les Paul Custom and looks exactly like the guitar that was pictured, except the design in between the tuners is different, and it reads Cortez instead of Gibson. Are there tons of Gibson clones out there? What's the deal with this guitar? How much better sounding is an actual Gibson? I'll stop the massive flurry of questions....

Yes. A ton of clones.
The sound difference? Depends who you ask.
