  • '77 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Question!

    I found a '77 LPD at a pawnshop. It's been naturally relic'd for sure. Here's the dilemma. It's got a head stock break that's been repaired. It's also missing part of the neck binding (1 1/2") on treble top side of the guitar,and
    a tuning head cap on the G string. It's in used condition, and needs work for sure. The neck is like a nice thin 60's neck and feels awesome. What would the approximate value of this guitar be. By the way, all the electronics work,but I can't tell if the neck is warped,because there are no strings on it. The bridge and tailpiece are in the battered original case. Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about $750. I had people give prices that are all over the map,but I still think this is what I feel is a good price. I think parted out, it would at least be worth $1000. .png" alt=":smileyhappy:" title="Smiley Happy" />

      I'm not wholly against buying a guitar with a repaired headstock break (mostly, but not wholly). That, however, is not one of the better repairs I've seen. I think others may be on the money as far as its value, but if you're wanting that as a player, I think that headstock break spells trouble. Makes me think there may be a reason there are no strings on it.

      Pass unless you plan to part it out or hang it on the wall in your man cave.

    Well I called several profession guitar repair guys I know and sent them a ton of neck photos. They all said that they've seen an repaired WAY worse than this. They all said they'd spend at least $900-1000 for it cause they'd never plan to sell the guitar anyway. I don't ever plan on selling it, so I took the plunge. Here's some pics fo the guitar.The guitar and the case are beat to hell and ooze mojo. The most awesome part of the guitar I love is the slender velvety smooth neck on this baby. One of the best necks I've EVER put my hands on. Can't wait to get her fixed up and playing..png" alt=":smileyhappy:" title="Smiley Happy" />

      happy new old broken and repaired guitar day. I got a fairly well used LP not long ago and i love it for it's character. It's almost like taking in a dog from the pound, it's had a rough past but it'll see plenty of love from now on.
