Does this seem a little pricey for a LP?

    the serial numer is gone due to a previous repair?

    I think they are selling this at way over real value. But they might get someone...

    Make an offer. Maybe you'll have better luck than the 32 other people who've been declined.

    Even if I had that kind of money, I wouldn't spend it on a repaired 1960 LP without a serial number!

    It looks like they replaced the entire headstock by using a scarf joint on the back of the neck.

    Whether they'll get it will depend on the guitar's provenance. They said "This 1960 Burst has been pro-owned all its life and has passed through some of the greatest player's hands of all time.". If it was truly rock-star owned, they might get it.

    The 'make offer" option likely means the $130k BIN doesn't mean anything...

    Nobody's going to buy a 130K Guitar off Ebay unless it's a documented seller anyway............

    no serial number would say it may have been stolen along the way.

    Kills the value. I'll be very surprised if they get $100K for that piece.

    Not to worry fellas, there's somebody out there with too much money just waiting to pick that guitar up. I'm sure Gruhn or somesuch could verify the guitar w/o serial number, and in the end if it's 95% of being the real deal (as in replaced headstock) that's pretty darn close to the Holy Grail...

    I can assure you that I'm not worried about what they get for that guitar. Ebay. God help us.

    If it has the proper documentation it will be a great entry level burst for someone.

    Ah, Mikes Music. Serving the crackheads and heroin addicts in Clifton for over 30 years. Wouldn't buy a pick from them, but that's just me.

    I would think "entry level" would be a more beat up one that isn't priced outrageously with a significant repair, though. Or better, a gold-top -> burst "conversion". Those are out there, I know.

    Its a known guitar. Most that would be in the market for a burst, on ebay or elsewhere, know this guitar. I think it sold for around 60k the last time it was for sale, pre repair.

    I think that would still be a realistic price, 60k-ish

    This is was it looked like a couple of years back
