    Is the TP stock, or has it been modified?

    It entirely depends - can you tell me how much the TP weighs?

    .

    Let's see .. 48 rolls = 47/2*99+3.50 = $2,330 ... so it would be a close call depending on how vintage the guitars are and if there was a headstock repair done on the Gibson or a refin on either.

    I suspect most burst owners have the TP thing covered. Same with vintage amps. I haven't seen any ads "Will trade Vintage Blackface for Quilted Northern".

    Considering you can now buy TP on Amazon again, and most Target stores have TP in stock again, as well as most Walmart stores getting new TP stock daily, I'd have to go with the guitars having higher value.

    I'd place their values right up there with wet wipes and rubbing alcohol.

    The '59 Les Paul will buy your family ventilators

    The '54 Strat will buy you and your significant otter ventilators.

    Keeping it Rio.

    True dat, but if you use your finger, you would probably:

    1) Conserve toliet paper
    2) Be more likely to wash your hands
    3) Be less likely to touch your face
