Went into Belmont Music back in the mid '70's.
I had planned to buy the Citation, but after I
played the guitar I wasn't at all impressed.
Back then Belmont's had it for about $3,500.
I should have bought just for the price
appreciation.

Folisch to spent so much money for a piece of wood with six iron strings. My old Aria sounds much better and cost my $245.
I invite you to hear the difference.........oooooooo.

Right now Gib$on charges $33K for one. In the (in my opinion) butt-ugly natural finish. Not cool...

I'm sure that Gibson sells enough of these at 33K that they'll make money. I wouldn't want one for 5K, but it's not my thing.

Then again, I LOVE Les Pauls but wouldn't pay anywhere near what people ask for nice 50s Standards and Customs either. If you got the money, great.
