    $550 - $700 on the 'bay, typically.
    The VOS custom shop jobbies are easily three times as much.

    I flipped my faded for a 1960 stripped down body/neck and put my own stuff on. They're easy to find on e-bay.

    OR....roll your own with a Warmoth. Theirs are really cool. PM me if you need the TV Yellow paint code.

    They seem to be getting tougher to find. I miss the one I had, although I don't miss the frequent repair bills. Not a very well made guitar, in my opinion. But damn they sure sound nice, and they feel pretty good too.

    At any rate, I (shouldn't have) sold mine for $550 a few months ago, if I recall correctly.

    Frankee's right on the money. I saw a used one in a local shop going for $600.

    Hey, it's a Gibson. You have to play a few and find a spanky one.

    I have to reiterate about the Warmoth thing.......this looks like the way fly. http://www.warmoth.com/Guitar/Bodies/LPS/LPSflatop.aspx

    Thanks guys!! I have one and I'm not playing it so I thought I'd clear it out.

    HMMMMMMMMM any interest in trading it? I don't know what compels me to want one of those guitar again, but I really do miss mine. ******** if that wasn't one of the coolest sounding guitars I've ever owned.

    Last week, I saw a used one at a store for $649. I didn't take note of it's condition though.
