Something doesn't add up. Either they've mistyped the cost or it doesn't work or something.

Also, check the feedback, there's a guy who's 1,099 out of pocket for an item he bought but never arrived and they haven't refunded him!

Saying that, you could bid and get an absolute bargain!

Thats Two Hundred and Twenty Nine Thousand Pounds! I might consider it if they considered a free re-spray in day-glo orange though!

For the price you would think they would have better photos.

Just imagine the Paypal fee on 229k !!!

No idiot is going to spend that amount of cash on the bay. And as HDS says you'd expect much better pics for a start

I think I'll have two please :)

Someone actually offered 205k for it!

That`s how much these go for actually. 59`s are becoming extremly collectible, and people are spending lots of money to get them. Personally i`d rather buy a house with that money, but obviously these types of investment cater to a wealthier class.

Its not a class I belong in. I am addicted to collecting other things, but thankfully not guitars

wealthier class shop on ****? I would think this would be a Christie or Sotheby's thing.

............ or at the very least Gruhn's? Jacksons Rare Guitars here in Sydney have sold (get this) two original '59 Les Pauls in the last six months - while they haven't exactly been disclosing the prices, the word I got was well in excess of $275 000AUD each!

But 229,000GBP is a bit more than $275,000AUD... It'd be like Nigel Tuffnell.. "No, you can't touch it... don't even look at it!" Mind you... if I had half a mil to throw around.....
