I am looking at buying a 1981 gibson les paul custom in the supposedly super rare goldburst finish. It has some wear but not totally screwed like the paint on these things were known for. I have read there were like 50 made and a lot came back under warranty for finish problems and were painted with a different paint. I saw a couple on ebay, one was just under 5k and the other was like $3500, neither sold. I saw one that was worn pretty bad and the finish on the neck was stripped off and grunhs apprasied it at $2k at the end of 2010. What would you pay? All original.
