Wow, it looks superb. I'd like to build a '59 sometime... only things I would have done differently is Pearly Gates pickups and a stop tailpiece. Also I probably wouldn't have sprung for nitro, but that's just because it'd probably be more expensive.
Edit: What do you think that puppy will go for? $1500?
It's rare to see an actually nice LP on ebay. Lots of strats but few LPs period and what there are often just aren't very attractive guitars. This one looks nice. I am curious what this one makes it to as it looks like there is no reserve and he says there are some dents and dings on a guitar brand that already doesn't have a very good resale. If I had the cash I'd drop in a $500 autobid and see if I got lucky.
Couldn't tell you why someone would sell it. I know when I was selling my Gibson to get the cash together for my Warmoth I had a guy offer me a trade because he had put a Bigsby on his Les Paul, didn't like it, sold it, and wanted another one. Maybe the Bigsby didn't turn out to his liking.
So you're the one. I don't have the cash and the wife would shoot me anyway. It'd be nice to see a Warmoth actually go for a decent price. If that thing was in fact a Gibson it'd be going for $3K plus and the sound would probably be worse.
It's at $510... that was quick. :icon_thumright: But it's all good, I'd much rather the guitar get the price it deserves than rip the guy off by getting the thing for $400. I'll keep an eye on it as it ends and if it's going for under $1K I might put in another bid, but like I said early on, I see this thing going for more like $1500 and I can't afford that.
