• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Les Paul Juniors. Is everyone insane?!

In mid-2020 I sold my scruffy refin 55 LPJ and bought a nearly identical collector grade 55. That cost me net around $4,500. I thought that was a great value 'upgrade' and shows that if you're buying and selling its all swings and roundabouts in this heated market. I'm happy with the outcome - these are just incredible sounding guitars.

I don't get it mysellf. They're cool guitars but at five figures no thank you. About three or four years ago I bought a '55 Special in a pawn shop. It had been refinished a long, long time ago but everything was original except for the tuners (originals in the case). It came with the original pink and tan case as well. For $325 it was an amazing find. I think $3250 would have been about what I would have paid for it had iI seen it in a real shop.

I still have it and it's fun to play but I wouldn't want it as my only guitar. YMMV.
