The shop Well Strung Guitars, has finally put a price to the 1960 Les Paul Standard that they have sitting on for some time. The price tag states an asking price of $69,995.
This guitar has an inked serial number in the 0-88xx range. It is not in mint condition and shows the usual signs of wear with the cherry finish quite faded. It is an even fade as the ads states but the back of the neck is much more fadd. There doesn't seem to be anything special about this LP std other than it has survived mostly intact. There is one other difference. Like all the the production 1960 LPs it has no Les Paul markings .
I am not up on the market values of these early Les Paul Standards in the new style but the price seems to have markedly increased.

That’s a remarkably light fingerboard. If BRW can be so light in color, why does everyone obsess over looking for dark, almost black rosewood fingerboards (especially in reissues I mean).

Silly price.

The side to side was a disastrous design.

The one to own is this version. Was mine, now played by a LPF member. Darker BRW, TOO.

To me it seems the pics are a bit over exposed, that could explain the very light looking BRW. Or it might need some lemon oil, that will darken the wood some. But surely it's not as dark as they usually are.
As for the asking price I can't imagine it will bring that much.
