That's crazy. I don't think this guy can get that money. It can only be that Gibson buys it back but I doubt they can pay that much.

Ridiculous..... But they sold a 64' Strat in mint condition for 50.000 a while ago, and they also have some 60's in bad condition for around 20.000. This would be the prize for a mint 59' but I doubt that no one would pay that for a 78' ....

Btw. I heard on the radio yesterday that a bridge over the river Thames near Oxford was on sale... for 1.4 Mio £ or something like that.
The funny thing about this is that all incomes from the bridge is tax-free. Eg. some old english King (probably some George..) made an agreement some hundred years ago with the builder that all incomes shall be tax-free. And that agreement is still in charge.... So all people driving with car has to pay 5 pence to drive over the bridge which yields an income of 100.000-200.000£ a year... Seems like a good deal to me! laugh.gif

It wouldn't surprise me at all if they make that amount! There seem to be a growing number of 'Collectors' who don't mind paying premium prices for instruments that will never be played.

I also remember reading that particular article about that guitar when it was first published. I probably still have the Magazine in a Box in my garage somewhere!!!

"Where can you find any 1978 Gibson Les Paul in any shop anywhere in the world that has been in stock for 30 years unsold?"

Probably nobody wanted it, tongue.gif
