    this fella is hilarious...
    hilariously confused....and VERY sure of himself.
    he's really excited about those tuners, isn't he?
    can't remember the last time I bought a guitar because it had the bitchen tuners.:NUTS

    I really hope he gets a buyer at $30,000. I might then have to sell some guitars on e-bay! ;)

    Of course, mine don't have the cool tuners.

    I can't believe he'd actually put up the questions for all to see...

    to funny for words

    THE FEATURES ARE AS FOLLOWS :

    - THIS IS A 1984 GIBSON CUSTOM LES PAUL GUITAR -
    THAT IS A VINTAGE CLASSIC ( 24 YEARS OLD ) AN 80's HATCHET
    - IT IS NICKEL PLATED, WITH SPEED CRANK TUNING KEYS
    ( WHICH ARE RARE, THEY QUIT MAKING THESE ABOUT NINETEEN YEARS AGO )
    - NOTICE THE CLOSE UP SHOTS -
    THEY WERE DESIGNED FOR QUICK STRING INSTALLATION DURING
    LIVE PERFORMANCE TRAGEDIES, LIKE SNAPPED / BROKEN STRINGS.
    MADE WITH MAHOGANY WOOD, PAINTED CLASSIC BLACK, WITH IVORY EMBEDDED EDGES,
    MOTHER OF PEAL INLAYS ON THE FRETS AND TUNING HEAD,
    " PATENTED PICK UPS " FOR A " RICH SMOOTH SOUND "
    EVERYTHING INSIDE AND OUT IS ORIGINAL !


    and he is sure of himself as well

    All Sales are final, Please understand that buyers need to buy insurance as this is high priced item
    payment : Paypal doesn't allow transactions more than $5000.00 . As a result I can accept Wire - transfers . But I do require a $500 deposit to be paid immediately at the end of the auction . This deposit is non refundable .


    Though I would not mind getting $30,000 for my 1985 Gibson LP Custom, but its not a vintage guitar yet, i will have to wait a year or more for it to be.

    I would agree that guitar is worth
    about $2500, except if you read all
    of the Q&A's, the seller clearly states
    that it was once played by the Indigo
    Girls. THE Indigo Girls. So, you
    know... there you go.

    Well . . . You know . . . It does come with a Hardcase included!:jo

    This is clearly one of those same guys you see selling their car as a very very rare "Ford Camero" - only one ever made in history! :rotflmao

    He said in the Q&A that it was bought new in '84 for almost 4K.Yeah right.
    I worked in a music shop then and we sold new LP Customs for $1100. all day long.
