Recommended Posts

hi there, i am in the process of buying a 1997 les paul black beauty, the serial number on the back is 721300, does this seem ok or is it likely to be not as it seems

 

I am paying £1900 (gbp) so i need to be really 100% sure

 

 

many thanks for your help, if it does turn out to be correct ill be around here alot.

Strange...I put that in that number and it said:

 

Serial number unrecognized

 

Your guitar may have been made prior to 1977, in that case you may need to use the Vintage Panel, simply select all the options that best describe your guitar. If you are still having difficulties please contact the webmaster.

Have a look at the frets. They should be covered at the ends by the binding along the fretboard. (In other words the frets should appear to be integral to the white plastic binding) I can't see clearly enough from your pics. Good luck
