Contact Gruen guitars !!!!

Something like a 59 Les Paul will bring a good dollar and there are those who0 will try to steel it from you ,be careful. Also elderly instruments . These are 2 of the most respected dealers in the business.

dude i saw a 59 les paul for $100000


Yeah, but did you see anyone buy it?

Contact Gibson? Or take it to a trusted guitar expert if you know any.

Was it actually made in 1959? or is it a reissue?

If it's a genuine made in 1959 les paul, in near mint condition, it'll fetch you over 6000$

EDIT: That was an apporximation. I'm not really sure.

A reissue might be...1500$ depending on condition. Save it for longer and it'll increase in value.

I don't really know but I'd say it's worth quite a bit and I'd hold onto it because the value just goes up and up

I'd sell the Hell out of that thing. You could buy a bigtime rig with the kind of money from that thing. Got a picture? What condition is it in? Specifics.

Post a pic or I won't believe you have one. It's a very rare, very expensive guitar, so show us you actually own one

**** dude, $6000 for a 59' Les Paul, I'd be all over that. Try adding a 1 to the front and another 0 at the end for good measure.

Gibson-
Les Paul Standard (sunburst)
1959- Highly flamed, strong color
$185,000 - $250,000
prices listed are low to high, excellent condition.
an instrument with a plain top should dicounted about 50%
with an average top -30%
moderate or total fade -10%
with factory Bigsby, -15%
original Jumbo frets are preferred over original small frets and are worth +10%
with a non-orginal Les Paul case is worth $2500 less.

p.s.

i have serious doubts about anybody owning one, and not knowing it's value.

I really hate people who sit on internet forums making everybody prove everything about themselves. I do, however, hate people who ask me to do research when it's a fake and there is no need to research even more.

I not only highly doubt, but am 100% positive you don't own this guitar. Don't **** with me this late at night and ask me a ****ing question that I actually have to work to find the answer when you don't need an answer. The fact that you thought Jimi Hendrix covered Stevie Ray Vaughan completely disproves anything you say. That combined with the fact that you play "aaa hockey" leads me to believe that you're not even old enough to have a job to pay for a 59 Gibson. And judging by your posts, if I were your parents, I wouldn't trust you with a $5,000+ guitar.

You people do realize he could've attained this guitar from his parents, without any knowledge of it and/or guitars in general.

With that said, pictures would help. And if its a reissue or a genuine piece of work.

if its genuine and in mint condition you could easilly fetch a quarter million dollars for it, if you found someone willing to spend that much on a guitar.

Threadstarter: I don't belive you ATM., but if you posted pictures out of it, one where you hold up a sing that say: at the moment Gabel wrote this he was listening to Eminence front by The Who. And then we want a serial number of it.

im assuming that the guy has a reissue, as you dont usually own a guitar worth more than a house and not know it.

Give us the serial number on the back of the headstock. Until then I don't see how you guys can give prices without pictures too.
