What year les paul?


Recommended Posts

First, if it's in a pawn shop, it's unlikely to be a real '53...especially if it's under $20,000. There's a '53 body, no neck, no pickups, or hardware on Reverb for $10,000. I'd say it's probably a reissue that's at the pawn shop. Good luck!

The '53 model is extremely easy to identify for several reasons. Pictures, obviously, would help...

I sincerely doubt it's even a reissue for $1,500 but you never know. Serial numbers on their own mean diddly-squat. We need more info as to hardware etc.
