    I ended up buying this last week, it arrived last Tuesday. I was extremely impressed by the quality & it's unbelievably light for a Les Paul bass. Balanced well with the Hipshot Ultralight Tuners. The pickups sound great! It came with flatwounds.

    The Vintage Guitar Price Guide lists it as $1,500 to $1,900 if I am seeing it right as a 1936 EH-150, first run-metal body. This price estimate is a consensus of 36 experienced dealers. I usually go by this & what they actually sell for on eBay, Reverb, etc... You likely won't see many of these to compare it to.

    The amps had a cleaner, clearer tone than their Fender counterparts. Around the time these amps were manufactured, Eric Clapton and other guitarists made the distorted, overdriven guitar sound popular. That changed everything!

    I acquired a few Gibson amps over the years from the last models that were produced in Kalamazoo. They were always a bit cheaper than their Fender counterparts. They seemed to be conceived to be more suitable for jazz playing than rock & roll.

    The next series of amps were said to have been manufactured at the Standel Factory, Gibson apparently had holdings in Standel at that time.
  5. In Topic:Starting to wonder, if I love the "idea" of a Les Paul, more than the guitar, itself?

    Has anybody given the ES Les Paul a good try? This might be a good option for us aging rockers. Not cheap, but a light alternative with the same neck feel possibly.
