Yes this guitar is one of 4 guitars produced in 1982. Three were burned in the famous 'Smoke On The Water' fire.

If Jimmy Page finds it he will surely pay tens of thousands for it.

I own a '56 Les Paul Special (minor mods for playability, still have original parts i.e. tuners, bridge) with a (rare?) color. It's original white. Not TV. Original P-90's. My father purchaced it new in '56 for $200. It's older than me, & in better condition...and I'm 49. I've heard various opinions over the last 30 years, but if there is an expert out there...How rare is this & how much is it worth?

dont sell it unless you really need the money , you can sell it for more than its worth in the price guide which is $15000 to $20000, very rare ..

Is your 1956 LP Special single or double cutaway? Dog-ear P-90's? I have NEVER seen one in white, in person or online. Would be cool if you had the original sales receipt saying "white LP Special" on it- that would help confirm it is unique. I doubt Gibson could corroborate that it came in white from the factory. It is certainly valuable, but I have to add white guitars ganerally do not fetch the bucks sunbursts and golds do... still collectors love those old gibsons, and if it's faded to a creamy color it probably looks great. Enjoy!

Hi, just curious, the gibson les paul classics 90 to 93 had model on the headstock? Then 94 to 2006 have classic on the headstock? Now it seems gibson have gone back to putting model on the headstock for the 2007 classics. Would this be correct? Also i have a 94 les paul classic (cherry sunburst) with AAA flame in mint condition, i think they called this a premium plus. The neck seems to be inbetween a 50's and 60's not slim but not fat (strange) as my other classic i have has the conventional 60's slim tapered neck. What would be the asking price for my 94 classic? Thanks. Dave.

Suddenly, people are interested in buying it, but I don't know it's true value. Any suggestions on value range or where I can get more information on value?

I have a Les Paul that the serial number was scratched off. I've tried to find out what year it is for a very long time. I got it for $300, 11 years ago. It's sun burst, pearl inlays, gold hardware and the tuning nobs have either been turned around or switched. Is there any way to find out what year it is?

.
The ability to travel in time is indeed a rare feature in a guitar. The "Smoke on the Water" fire happened in 1971.

If H.G. Wells could find it, he'd pay hundreds of thousands for it.

can anyone identify a 3/4 Gibson Les Paul (style) with 2 pickups. The trus rod cover says "Les Paul" and the shape is clearly a Les Paul, although smaller. It has 2 pickguards. One that is on the surface of the guitar (black)--sort of like the Melody Maker, but slightly different and then a smaller one that is attached at an angle (white). There is a serial number on a small plate on the reverse of the headstock. 4 knobs. Looks super retro. Do you think it could have been someone's homemade guitar for their kid?

Hello, I just picked up a 1980 Wine Red Gibson Les Paul Standard with all original parts except for the tuning keys, which have been altered (same keys though). Original Case included. Pick Guard still in tact and guitar in generally good condition. The serial number is 82530605. Can anyone help me figure out what this is worth?

Good find. It appears to be a 1980 LesPaul, and because it's in good condition, and does not have original tuning keys, valuation is in the range of $1000.00 - 1300.00.

Been a while since I checked this site, but in reference to my white '56 LP Special...It's single cut
& no dog ear on pick-ups. Have no original sales slip.
Wish I had any documentation, but who knew 53 yrs ago, that old beginner Gibsons would be worth so much.
It has faded to the creamy color now, although Gibson claims they never made white in '56. Go figure, cause I'm lookin' at one right now, & I could post some pic's,(If I knew how to). There's no serial # as Gibson inked on the #'s back then & it's long ago worn off. Suppose it might be revealed using forensic science, but for now I'll go off dad's memory. He graduated HS in '56 & treated himself to a brand new guitar. With the economy the way it is, I'm really starting to think about selling. Hoped I'd never have to do that...but I am thinking.

The Les Paul Signature is a semi hollow (like a 335), low impedance model. The pickups are low impedance, super humbuckers! The jack on the front is for high impedance. The jack on the bout is actually a balanced, low impedance (stereo) line out. You can buy a chord right off the rack to plug into a low impedance xlr jack like on a P.A.

To austin@midcitysound.com: The serialization on 1957-1961 Les Pauls was different than the 1st and 5th system you're trying to use. I have a 1957 Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty" in pristine condition, PAF humbuckers, etc. It's serial number is 7 21180, which translates to 1st digit is last number of the year model, space, followed by either 4 or 5 digits indicating the production number. So, mine is 1957 production run number 21180. Your serial number would indicate a 1957, but the production run number is too long, and with no space after the year number. It looks more like a reissue serial number from mid to late 60's, probably 1968 on a guess. Do the backs of the pickups have black decals with gold font saying "Patent Applied For", or do they say "Patent Number XXXXXX(yours would have a number, not XX)"? If they have a patent number, it's a reissue.

A friend of mine has acquired a 1976 Les Paul Custom, which I have not been able to find cataloged anywhere. Can anyone out there give me any input as to what he really has. It is a natural finish, triple pickup, with gold hardware. The maple cap is plain grain, not figured, the two piece mahogany body is full-width sandwiched, rather than full thickness, and it is far and away the heaviest Les Paul I have ever picked up, and believe me, I know heavy. This one has no competition in that respect. But the biggest detail is the neck is three piece maple, capped with an ebony fretboard. Yes I am sure, MAPLE. Yes, I am sure it is genuine Gibson, and yes, I am sure about the date, and yes it is original finish. Anyone out there got any idea what he has found?

To find the serial number, sometimes the number is in the cavity when you remove the pickups. It could also be signed and dated there as well, for those of you looking for the age of your guitar.

Hi - I have a 1975 Les Paul Standard in tobacco sunburst (exactly like Jimmie Page played 'back in the day') I bought this new and have had it ever since. It's all original except for the addition of a PAF-90 pickup in the bridge position and the replacement of the plastic cord-jack plate with a custom steel plate.

Although I played it quite a bit in the early days, it is in near mint condition. One or two minor nicks (under 1mm dia.) and virtually no scratches whatsoever. I also have the (slightly beat-up) original hard-shell case.

I am seriously thinking of selling it and need a reliable price estimate.

Anyone ever hear of a gibson harp guitar 1902 worlds fair? My dad died 15 years ago at age 75 he collected intruments his whole life and we still have them( at least 100 . My mother gave them to me. I have just started looking at the book he left that lists the instruments and the harp guitar was one.

hi folks
Can anyone identify a Gibson Melody Maker series 91623865 humbucker pick up, plastic string tuning- like an SG, black plastic tone- volume tuning, plectrum plate not covering under the strings as the melody makers from 2007, colour red, single cut, like a les paul, not faded. No tremolo.
The descrption corresponds to the humbucker melody maker produced between 1983 and 1988 but from the series number the guitar seems produced in 1993...and in that perio we either have the all american series melody maker and it cannot be as ithis series was double cut + tremolo; the other series of the 90s is the les paul melody maker but it had a tremolo and no plastic tuning knobs.
Or the info i have seen about the Humbucker melody maker being produced only until 1988 (Wikopedia) are not correct? I suspect this is a Humbucker Melody Maker corresponing in all details to wikpeia description...can anyone give some hints?

In 1963 I got a Christmas present..a used Gibson Les Paul Custom SGw/ original case/amp. Anyhow, its white with 3 gold humbuckers, Vibrato side pull tail/lots of inlay,gold plate, and original except some ratty gold parts were replated a few years back.Even showed it to Les himself 4 years ago at the iRIDIUM..AND LEARNED THIS WAS THE "UNapproved" model so it had a short production run. Love it as Ive owned it now for 46+years and would be curious as to the value. Any Help??

I have a 1958 TV yellow Les Paul Special single cutaway ser # 8-1827 in fair to good condition. It has been played many years. All orig except Grover tuners and a bridge that has set screws so it can be strobed. It was bought in 1958 for me and I have had it ever since. I read on this website that Humbuckers replaced the P-90's in 1957 but mine are black and very strong. Can't count how may speakers I have blown out over the years in my Fender amps. Did the article mean 1957 in other models of Gibson, not the Les Paul? Could someone confirm the age through the serial number? Also, could someone venture a guess the possible value of this guitar?

For Christmas 1963, I was given a used Les Paul Custom with amp...a year or 2 old at the time. The guitar has the SG body, 3 pickups, all gold plating in as-new condition, lots of mother of pearl on ebony neck with a plate at the bottom that says Les Paul Custom., white body, with a little patina/age showing from almost 50 years, excellent original case. I dont have the amp or original strap I HAD 47 years ago....alas..but I'd like to get an idea of its value. I've seen some BIG numbers in some guitar mags, but??

 

  Posted By : Anonymous Anonymous

That Christmas gift is BIG $$$$$$$. Maintain the guitar and amp. If you don't play, learn or sell it to someone who will afford it AND play it. I've been playing 50 years and played one of those LP's when I was 10 at Lyon and Healy in downtown Chicago. Gibson put the Les Paul name on the SG body for a very short time. Les didn't care for the neck on the SG. Since Gibson was making some money with the original body and Les was da Man, They listened. And.... That guitar you have was the top of that line. That's a great axe. I'm jealous! Enjoy

I own a 1978 TV Yellow Les Paul Special that I bought used in 1981. I have not been able to find any info on this guitar so far. I did find a Gibson catalog from 1978 online that showed the Les Paul Specail but tit did not offer the guitar in TV Yellow. I am not sure if this was a rare color for that year or a short run,etc. Any info will be greatly appreciated and I look forward to someone responding to my post. Thank you very much!

i have an 78 yellow body, yellow fretboard, black tuning block, pearl inlays outlined in white strips. have never seen another like it. 70248140 I assume it was made january 24th 1978 140th les paul custom out of kalamazoo, michigan. No "made in usa" stamp. Id like to just see another one.

It is kind of beat up, plays great...I have looked on line extensively, and even wrote to Gibson, sent pics, but they can only tell me what I already know from the serial number. Gibson said that their records of serial numbers only go back to the late 1980s. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Friends: I was wondering what if any value is lost when someone modifys a vintage guitar?
I have located a vintage 1978 Gibson Les Paul, I believe its a Standard ! It orginially had just to pickups but had a third was put into the middle of others, also the Guitar has now 5 knobs on it so one was added, in addition they put in Pickup selector switches, 3 total. So with the above modifications what would this be worth? The guitar has wear and a good look but they are asking 1600.00 for it, they say without the mods that it would be worth much more.
Well than very much Bill Winchell

They didn't make any single cut Les Paul's from 1960 to 1968. So the guitar you have is not a 1967.

Looking to find some info on a Les Paul I used to own..........Im pretty sure it was a Standard. Serial # 109xxx. It had the trapezoid fret marker inlays that started on the 3rd fret.....not the block inlays starting on the 1st fret like a ....Custom???? No volute.

Not sure what color it was originally. When I got it, it had been sanded down to wood and the binding was gone from around the body. It did have binding at one time cause the groove was still there. and it did have the "carved" top. It had the Grover type tuners.....not the ivory looking ones. the serial # was 109xxx....it did not have "made in usa" ....so going by the info I found....it had to be a 60s model???
Unfortunately I dont have any pics.....or the guitar either. It was stolen back in the early 90s. I still look for it.....ran across the serial number while doing some organizing the other day.....so Im on the hunt again. :D

I have a 83 Standard in Wine Red, with a Kahler "style" tremelo on it, but it says Gibson on the tremelo with the "US Pat app'd for" on it. Serial number 80663537. Were these actually Kahler Tremelos, or were they a product of Gibson ... or a combination of the two?
I've had the Tremolo locked down for years because the last guitar tech that looked at it said that tremelo use would eventually damage the guitar, that the necks were not really designed to take the abuse.
Any comments?
Thanks,

I recently got back an SG shaped guitar that my brother bought from me in the early 80's. Says Gibson LP junior on the headstock. All original, no cracks or breaks. Has the original case and a little brochure with the specs sheet on it. The case is a little beat but the guitar is in pretty good shape. Pretty vibrant red color, some fading on the top of the neck. Was never gigged with, he used it when he got his music degree in Boston. 5 digit serial, 982**. Any idea what it is worth? Great guitar, really has the 'it' factor going on. Broken in perfectly and just a real toneful and easy to play guitar.

Hello,
I have a 1963 Les Paul Jr. that was in poor condition. It belonged to my grandfather. It had been painted and I kept all of the original parts. I recently had it reconditioned with the original cherry finish. The headstok was damaged as well and has been repaired. We left the original identifiers on the face of the headstock intact. It is in perfect condition and looks fantastic. I have had several professional guitarists play it and want to purchase it. I would like to know if anyone would know what this would be worth since there was some damage and it has been reconditioned.

Thanks, Joe

I have a 74' Les Paul, Signature. It has the original gold finish which is crackled and crazed. The humbuckers were removed before I got the guitar 20 years ago and other pick-ups were slipped in their place. But at least no material was removed and the original style pick-ups and rings should go back. From the little research I have done the, the humbuckers on this model were embossed with the Gibson name and I was told I will never find these correct pick-ups for the guitar. Is this true? I also will need the rings that enclose the pick-ups. Is there another Gibson humbucker and ring that will fit the opening correctly and at least make the guitar not look like it has been butchered! Would the Gibson factory be able to help me if I sent it in to them. Would really like to restore it! Any ideas, thoughts, etc, would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for the gentleman that wanted to install a whammy bar on a 1957 gibson les paul junior. There was a response on installing it because of the decreasing the value. I own a 1957 les paul jr that has 3 alterations that were already on the guitar when I purchased it. the first alteration was it was painted white. 2nd alteration was the tone knob was switched to a toggle switch which made a deep bass sound, the other position gave ita brighter sound. The third alteration was a whammy bar was installed, looks professionally installed. This whammy bar is very old because it is so thick, very well built. The strings on the neck lay so low that you would assume that the strings would buzz on the fret bars, but they dont.very playable. The only problem with the guitar is the tuning keys were actually peeling off in my fingers when i recently tried the guitar because it had been so long since i had played it. It has the original 4 digit serial #. If you are still out there and still interested in the 57 jr with whammy bar ,post a response here so I could give you contact information. I would be willing to part with this guitar for the right price

Hello Guys and girls. I know this post is a stretch but i am inquiring about a 01' Wine Red Gibson LP Standard with a Rosewood fret board, mother of pearl inlay, gold knobs and cream trim. Its defining marks are belt buckle marks in the middle of the back (i used a low strap). It has two P90 pick ups with silver covers. It was stolen from me in the last month or so in the Philadelphia area and i believe it was sold on craigslist in the Philadelphia/NJ area but could be half way across the country for all i know.(checked every pawn shop in the area). It is a guitar that i got from a friend that passed and is the only thing i have left from her. It means the world to me. If anyone has heard of a guitar that fits this description or has seen it for sale anywhere online i would appreciate any help locating it. The kid who stole it doesn't know anything about guitars and am sure he gave a low price. I appreciate any help or comments.

- Please reply to IBP3

If your serial number is right, you prob have a bootleg guitar. There isn't 921 days in a single year.it goes like this: ydddyrrr. Y" year, d" day of year and r" rank ( # of guitar for the day). Maybe you mixed up the 2nd 9 and the 2?

I have an original 1963-1965 cherry SG Standard with printed number on back of #275565. Everything is original and working fine which I've had since the 60's from H.S. The case is original in black with orange interior. In very good shape with some minor dings and scratches along edge on body and on top backside from playing days in High School dances associated with a teenager' handling. Otherwise nothing else, all parts are working and in good shape! Based on this site's 2009 perspective these guitars from their 2009 pricing goes from $18,000 to $25,000 with a 33% upward trend for each year, i.e. 4 years later for 2013. So figure what you should offer? Will consider reasonable offers but definitely not desperate to sell. Also, I have an all original and working tube Fender Deluxe amp in Black with silvertone facing worth quite a bit also due to vintage purposes. Looking for "private" sale only to a worthwhile candidate who'll continue caring and playing...maybe a rock musician looking for such an instrument who can afford it...? or, collector? email osprey175@verizon.net
