I was at Gruhn's yesterday and I in a humidified case was a '59 LP Custom. It was $45,000. I believe it is the only '59 I have ever seen in my life. Anyone want me to pick it up for them? Let me tell you if you go to Nashville Gruhn's if the real deal. My and my buddy are going to go back today and over to Carter's Vintage Guitars too. There were less Gibson at the place than I expected, but I have never seen so many Martin's in my life. I don't believe there are any left in Nazareth.

Actually from what I've seen of prices for an actual '59, that is not a real high price. Not that I'd be selling a car or two to get it, but have seen them well into six figures.

Always wanted to visit Gruhn's but scared of what I might walk out with [scared]

Very cool FZ Fan. Always wanted to go to Gruhns, but I live in England. We have some good vintage shops here though. When I was down in London recently one of the shops on Denmark Street had an original '58 Les Paul Standard and another shop had a Gibson Harp Guitar (I think it was from 1918) which was very interesting to see. The most exciting thing for me though was a newer shop which had an original 1958 Switchmaster at a good price too. There were quite a few nice acoustics also, like a 60's Hummingbird.

I love visiting Gruhn's whenever I'm in Nashville.

I saw Phil Collen in there one time. (Guitar player for Def Leppard.)
The band was in town that day to play a gig that had been cancelled because Rick Savage's mother in law had just passed away.

He didn't buy anything.

Let us know what the Gibson selection is like at Carter's. I'm thinking of heading there to check it out.

Its reslly good. Some nice ES-335's, LP's hell everything. Carters has more electric's, but Gruhn's has more acoustics. In both stores I touched guitars priced from 15k to 1.5k. Your pants will get tight when you walk in either door.

Both stores are 10 to 15 mins away from each other. I played a 5k Thomopson in Carter"s that was the finest acoustic I've ever touched.
