So i got to play a REAL vintage 3 pickup les paul custom the other day during my guitar lesson. Since the shop has more of a pawnshop feel to it (they got TWO marshall 100 watt 'JIMI' heads in last week) lots of cool vintage stuff comes in. The guitar was selling for a mere 1600 dollars too! I liked it a lot more than my sg and now am looking more at les pauls instead of strats for my next purchase. Anyway just thought i'd share, really a kinda dream guitar.

EDIT: my teacher called it the spinal tap guitar smile.gif

If it's really a vintage guitar, it might be worth way more than the 1600 they ask for it!

Yeah but it has TONS of minor damage. Broken pup rings, nicks all over the neck, and the pups were replaced for dimarzios, minor wiring issues. Still a wonderful guitar though.
