I was browsing on ebay today and I stumbled on a 1957 les paul goldtop for sale at a bargain price , 1950s gibson goldtop models have increased significantly according to today's vintage market .
To be quite honest if i had the money right now id probably buy it , gibson les paul goldtop guitars were introduced In 1952 , they were gibsons' first les paul models and solid body electric guitars ... you can read the full goldtop guitar review here .
The seller's starting bid is $38 000 , the guitar is listed in 4 different price guides at $55 000 to $100 000 ... A 1957 goldtop with p-90 pickups can easily sell for at least $60 000 to the right buyer or at the right location ( vintage musical instrument auctions ) .
The guitar is a rare early 1957 factory darkback goldtop with black back plates , he's also throwing in a 1950's original case which is a generous bonus considering the price .... Whoever buys it is not only getting a piece of gibson history and a great guitar but is also making a clever investment as well ... I would be surprised though if the auction ends at $38 000 .
Important Note : Due to the overwhelming amount of comments on this blog i cannot answer all the questions although id love to . You can still post questions hopefully some of our viewers can help you out ... Thank You
