once in a lifetime


This perfect Gibson Les Paul guitar was manufactured in 1959. Purchased in 1961 for something around $300US, this instrument recently changed hands. The original owner had to let it go. There was drama but now the waters have stilled somewhat.

We're lucky: we get to see some very cool guitars.

Uncle G-- love your blog. It's such a nice departure from all the cold soup of my industry.

1959 Les Paul... The king of electric guitars. I wish I could have seen it!
