I'm interested in selling my Les Paul that was given to me as a gift about 14 years ago and I'm curious as to about what it is worth. As you can see there is no writing on the headstock, and I've opened up the back panels and there is no indication there as to who the maker is.





Thanks for your help!

probably not too much, but I'd have to play it to tell you how much I'd pay for it.

That is what I'm hoping to find out. Here is another photo from the rear:

The nut is completely ****ed from what I can see in the pic... take those nasty strings off, clean it, then put fresh ones on and it'll look a lot better

I guess what I'm asking is if there is any way to know who made the guitar?

It was a gift, why don't you keep it?


I have an acoustic guitar that I play on a regular basis, the Les Paul is the one I learned on...but hardly ever play it any more. I'd like to sell the guitar and buy a new pick up for my cello....pretty rock and roll, I know

Maybe $100. Nut needs help badly, and since you have no idea of origin, that hurts the value. Pull out those pickups though. The double cream colors leads me to believe Mighty Mite or DiMarzio. So that means it's from somewhere between the late 70s to the early/mid 80s. I was thinking Japanese, though it would be odd for a Jap guitar of that time to be set neck and not bolt on.

Not DiMarzio or Mighty Mite. No clue what that is. So being a mystery guitar of mystery parts and origin, I'll again say maybe $100 as no one is going to take a risk on something like that as it could be Chinese or Korean in origin as well.

that is korean on the pickup don't know for sure what it says but it definitely is korean in character makeup

Also caught her playing fallout boy on my guitar, changed my strings and cleaned it the next day.

i say this guitar sucks badly in the state it is in right now. i would suggest replaceing the nut, new strings, new pickups, and just clean the whole guitar really good.

i would say from about 150 to 175.

Wow, never thought my degree in Korean would come in useful on this forum...haha.

It says "검", which is the Korean word for sword. It's pronounced in between Gom and Kom, but I think that the current romanisation system has it wrote as "Keom" or something, which is a load of nonsense.

A no name guitar isnt going to get much. Its hard to get people to pay decent prices for name brand stuff. Your probably better to just keep it.
