Re: Is this a good deal

It looks like it is in good condition and I think the price is decent, the only concern I have is the finish but thats just my own opinion, the guitar looks good tho.

Talking Re: Is this a good deal

Thank you for the responses folks.
Now the question is- condition and price a side- how does this guitar fair in general? Are the pups on this good?

Thanks.

Re: Is this a good deal

Looks like the faded series Gibson puts out so they have a LP under a grand. I've played a few in the past and the necks are hit or miss like the Ibanez Premiums. Pickups are okay, but I'm not the biggest fan of Gibson pickups either.

Looks like a decent deal. Buy it, take the pickups out, sell them to the thick-skulled, prurist geezers on the Les Paul forum and dump some DiMarzios in.

Re: Is this a good deal

The 400-series pickups are in the middle-to-high output range compared with other Gibson pickups. Between a '57 Classic and the Burstbucker 3 / BB Pro.

This is a fair price for this guitar, seems like he might go lower.

Peace

Mike

Re: Is this a good deal

Thank you for all the comments and suggestions. I just decided to wait to get a higher-end model like a Standard or Classic.

Good decision. What's your budget like?

Today I tried out the Les Paul Classic with the midnight blue nitrocellulose finish. It was awesome- great looks, playability and sound.

GC has a 15% special right now and I have a RGT Ibanez to trade(They would give me only $225 for it). Even with that it comes to $1500 out the door.

I said I would think about it...ideally something with $1000.00
