okay, i was on kijii
or however its spelt
and i found an Epiphone les paul standard in ebony.
"got it for a gift, literally played it once because im more of an acoustic guy"

looking at the pictures, it looks mint.
its in the same town as me
and its for sale for $300
i could possibly get him down lower.

i currently have an epi les paul 100
it has been great to me
and i am a huge fan of the les paul.
its a classic.

good deal?
just give me a fender and let me rip

sounds good, if he lives near you, you should contact him and see it for yourself, and potentially test it out.

Maybe he doesnt know how to price a guitar
here's you chance to take the deal.
Good Luck!
