So I posted something similar in another Les Paul forum and I received some good advice from people who know a whole lot more than I ever will. That being said, I'm still trying to gather opinions as to what to do with my guitar. I'm an old dude and really haven't played in 30 years. I have a 1976 Les Paul Standard which I purchased in 1977 and have had ever since. The guitar is original except for 3 things. Neck pickup is original, but bridge pickup is Gibson 498T. Tuners are Grover. Capacitors are original value ( .022 uf) but not the original ones. The guitar is nice cosmetically, virtually no scratches, no belt buckle rash, frets in good shape, etc. However, there is a MAJOR flaw! This guitar has a serious twist in the neck. I attached 2 pictures which show how bad it is. I've never adjusted the trust rod and would be afraid to as I know nothing about working on guitars. So I have a pretty guitar that sounds good and believe it or not plays ok, even with the twist. But I would like to sell this guitar and have no idea which way to go with this. Would someone buy a guitar like this as a project? Should I take it to a shop and see if they can fix the twist? I guess if someone puts a new neck on you end up losing the serial number on the back and therefore, the value. This forum says Historic Les Paul District so I'm guessing some knowledgeable people hang out here. Anyone care to share an opinion? I do appreciate any input.
