That's not to high is it ? I hope that doesn't denote something else ?

Don't know if it's an optical illusion, but the photo of the back of headstock on the 59 shows a long streak down the back of the neck. Truss rod issue?

You read my mind as that is exactly what I was thinking .

Anybody else heard of a person carving their name in a 1958-59 les paul Standard???
.
Not a '58 or '59, but Eelco Gelling carved his name in his '60.

Hope the buyer doesn't need to fly with them - bet there's all sorts of explosive / gunpowder residue on them.

And looking at the auction pics, was there a Bigsby on the '58 at one time? There's the weird lack of fading there down by the strap button.

Interesting but a bit more detailed info in the auction description would be cool!

Some sellers seem to believe that more information = lower selling price.

Personally, I'll avoid them under most circumstances.

Anyone know WHY he is selling all this stuff? Just a house cleaning or something more interesting?

I don't know for sure, but I'll speculate. Ted strikes me as a guy who views guitars as tools to make music and little more. With that said, he's apparently well aware of the market value of '50s Gibsons. At his age, his touring and recording career is likely about done and really doesn't need these "tools" anymore.

That is so good

Ted is only doing what a lot of other 70's rockers are doing which is to eliminate excess or unused items .. G. Geil's sold his 59 years ago .. retirement .. Geddy Lee dumped his ... was collecting dust . Rik Emmett sold most of his collection and now Alex Lifeson of Rush fame is talking of doing the same ... as far as Ted "being skint." are the other gentlemen skint too ? hardly, not even close ... these guys are all approaching their 70's and serious touring again is highly doubtful, they are simply cashing in to use the money for other things ...
