  1. Thanks P...I think the owner still thinks it's an R9 ,so it probably won't happen. I'll keep my goldtop :D
  2. I see your points here ,but from other info I've found the long tenon didn't come about until late 93. anything from 1983-early 93 had the short tenon, and some were reissues. This one does have reissue stamped in the bridge pup cavity. I also understand that when the classics came out they were very similar to the reissues at the time, so much so that some shady dealers were swapping a few parts to sell them at the higher RI price. The neck didn't really seem as slim as a 60s , but I may be wrong. thanks for all the help.
  3. This is the only photo I can get to load. The others are too big ,and I don't have software to resize them. I will keep looking.
  4. Very good info. A big help. It definitely has the finer font as the center LP. And since it has the reissue stamp. It does also have the yellowed inlay. The pups have PAF stickers which someone mentioned may be very early 57 classics ?
  5. This is SOME info I have found so far. Reissues: Early Les Paul reissues produced between the late 1970s and 1993 should have an inked-on serial number on the back of the headstock. The first number should indicate the last year of the production. For example, 8 0358 would be a 1988.
  6. Ok folks I have a question, or questions. I have been looking at a 1991 Les Paul standard. It looks like a 59, feels like a 59. Has PAF stickers on the pups , ink stamped serial # 1 3431 (or 3134). Stamped in the bridge pup cavity is reissue. Is this an R9 ?, or something else? What would be an average selling price ?..It has a beautiful top, but has some wear. thanks in advance. Tom
  7. Anyone know the nut width ,and string spacing on a 65 melody Maker ? Thanks in advance.
  8. Pics would be helpful. Gold is not stock for a 76 standard, nor is the TP-6..value depends on condition ,and how original it is . Hey...you have a 76 LP. :)
  9. 99% finished...feels good...and resonates acoustically like a mother. Sure hope it sounds like that through an amp. I will know soon as I get the intonation set. :)
  10. Cool, thanks. It was very interesting. My birth year would cost me a heap more :)
  11. Yes Neck ,and body are original. I may very well stick with the ABR1. Thanks for the input.
  12. Maybe a little fret/nut work left, but otherwise as finished as it gets
  13. Yeah this is definitely a player . Not even close to collectible. I'll get some pics posted too.
  14. Ok...I have a 74 Custom...just the body when I got it. I'm thinking of swapping out the original bridge studs to post ,and bushing Nashville type......Should I do this ? Keeping in mind it has no other original parts. Is there any advantage to this ? Thanks Folks !
  15. Could you disclose the first few digits of the serial # ?
  16. Thank you for the reply. Guess I should have been specific. I have a 72 / 54 reissue, Standard 80 Heritage Series, 88 Standard ,and a 74 Custom. Would these be 12" also Thanks again.
  17. LOL...I know the feelin...sometimes technology is a little confusing. If they were on your computer , you could reply on here , go to the bottom of the page where it has an option for attachments , or copy ,and paste from Photobucket. You'll get it eventually.
  18. No Les Paul silk screen...hmm..you sure it isn't a Melody Maker ? Just asking..
