Gibson Les Paul Studio Silverburst for $399


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Guitar Center had this guitar for $399. It comes with a case.

It is listed as in fair condition because it has had a headstock repair.

I thought it was worth taking a chance so I am having them ship it to my local GC

So I can try it.

I've never had the privilege of owning a Gibson but AFAIK headstock repairs aren't uncommon. Best of luck with the pending New Guitar Day. 👍 You can take care of most of the chips with a little black nail polish. For that matter, the audience probably won't be able to see them anyway.

if the repair was done properly, and considering the nicks and dings, you're still likely getting a great deal on a great player!

 

This. 

As long as the break repair was properly done, that sounds like a great deal to me.

So I go to GC to pick up the guitar last Friday and when we open up the shipping carton there is an Epiphone triangle shaped box inside. I say that can't be it,where is the case? They say that is how it came. No case. When we open the Epiphone box the Les Paul is inside but after I look at the headstock repair I tell them I don't want it. It looked like an amateur job with a thick line of white glue running diagonally from the top of the headstock through low E tuner hole. One screw of the tuner looked like it was going to pull out of the wood. I just cancelled the order and got a refund.

Good move, sorry it wasn’t what you were led to believe

well, it was worth a look...too bad the head stock repair was crap. Of course now GC will have to up the price to offset the shipping from store to store...and what about that case?
