What would this be worth?

    It's a 2008 Gibson Les Paul Studio, chambered, with an actual maple top. I ask because I don't ever play this guitar anymore and my bandmate asked me. I couldn't really guess because it's had a lot of part changes/upgrades, a lot of which are kind of the "eye of the beholder" sort of things.

    I did 50s les paul wiring, CTS 500k audio taper pots with Vitamin Q .022mf caps, put in Burstbucker Pro pickups, Graphtech Tusq nut, replaced the bridge and stopbar with Gibson nickel replacements, as well as replaced tuners, Gibson kluson tulip buttons.

    Very minor wear, a few dings and scratches from being my main gigging guitar for about 4 years, but overall in great condition.

    I really didn't know what I'd price this at because of all the swapped parts, the only original things are the body and neck anymore.

    I have a general idea of what LP studios go for these days, but would this one be super devalued? Worth more because of the upgrades?

    I'm not selling it, I'm just very curious.

    between here & there
    I'd pay whatever a Studio generally goes for.
    The swaps don't bother me that much for a player.
    But to me, they're just changes, not worth more.
