Gibson Vintage 1971 Les Paul Gold Top “1954 Reissue”
This is an extremely rare vintage Les Paul. It is the first of the 54 Reissue models and is highly sought after by collectors and players alike. It features 2 incredible sounding Gibson Embossed P-90 pickups, wraparound bridge, and no volute. Nice light weight guitar for the era. Nearly 40 years old, could benefit from a refret sometime in the future, but I will leave that up to its new owner. This guitar is an excellent value. Had different tuners but the originals are back on. Back of the headstock had the clear coat slightly sanded when the tuners were changed. NO BREAKS to the headstock, only barely cosmetic, and not a big deal at all. Has a brass output jack plate installed. Control cover and pickguard each have a little crack. Keep in mind that this guitar is priced to move, it is thousands under the price of the few other 71 P-90 Gold Tops out there. There are a few currently on the market with asking prices over 8k. 2009 Vintage price guide places this guitar in the 9 to 12k range. Should be a complete no brainer at this price. Includes original hard shell case [ 2 broken latches ]

For the next week, the owner is going to drop $100-A-DAY off the price of the guitar. Correcto mundo...an already nicely priced vintage piece can be had for even less for the next week. How much less? Only time will tell but if you were feeling froggy on this one, it's time to jump. This guitar is priced way under market and is poised for a bump in value when the market stabilizes. Trades welcome...and it won't take as much to make it happen.
I'm actually really surprised no one has pulled the trigger on this one yet... I thought it'd be gone the minute I posted it. It's been the #1 inquired upon guitar since it hit the site a few weeks ago...not surprising considering the price and condition. Gotten close on some trades but it's still here and the consignor suggested some fun.
