What are 2002 Les Paul Standards going for these days?
I've seen a lot of dingleberries ask for anywhere from $1,700-$2,200, depending on the model and amount of SRV's ashes sprinkled on it...
Seems to be around $1,400-$1,700ish.
EDIT: I stand corrected... Just checked EBay's sold listings and quite a few of them went for over $1,800... Some even as high as $2,200.
Most of them were still around the $1,500-$1,800 range.
Again... Some people will try to use a specific year to raise the price. There have been tons of changes over the years, and personally, I feel my 2012 Standard blows away any other standard I've tried... But I've never played a 2002.
I'd pay up to 1,800 if I got the chance to play it. 2002 is a great year for the Nashville factory. My personal preference for Non Vintage Standard Gibson is 2001 and 2002.
Agreed on older LP Standards possibly being great guitars but NO WAY in hell would I pay up to $2K for one. To put things in perspective is snagged a used (but almost mint) R8 here on TGP a few years ago for $2300 with Lollar Imperials and an RS kit. That thing was amazing, stupidly sold it for some reason, can't even remember.
Anyway, I'd be looking in the $1600 range if it was a really killer LP that met my needs and color scheme preferences. Just my 2 cents.
1300 low 1600 high. On TGP anyway
I paid $1,500 for an '03 LP Standard in 2010. I guess I'll hang on to it for a while, given these prices!
'02-'07 were prime years for the Standard. I'm not a fan of the changes since '08 and prefer the Traditional.
$1400-$1800 seems reasonable.
I am in Canada so our dollar is crap right now but i just traded my 2002 les paul standard (which i received in a trade for an electric drum kit years ago) for an '82 american standard strat and $600. The strat is not original though (has the david gilmour EMG's in it with the original pickguard and a locking nut installed). Was tobacco burst finish but there was a finish crack under the binding so i thought i got around $1600 canadian ($1300 USD approx) which i thought was fair. Unless the strat is worth more than i know.
Look for a 2013 / 2014 Traditional, same guitar with no weight relief holes, just like the Historic lines.
The " Standard " since 2008 is a more modern version of the LP that is either chamberd or has a modern weight relief system, with different neck carves and since 2012 advance switching.
I have an '02 and an '06 standard, they are both great. I paid around $1450 for the 02, but that was 10 years ago in Socal.
Today, around 1800 seems to be the price range on craigslist. I think online will be higher due to shipping, auction mania, etc.
Like others said, depends. Plain-tops easily go for $1800-$2000 on CL. Anything flame or quilt goes close to $2500 most of the time.
