I looked at Ebay and the prices jump around alot.And the guitars are only about 2 to 3 years old and people are dumping them to make money so I don't think these would be fair prices and it undercuts the true value of the guitar. Finding a 10 year old Custom is hard and I would think it being 10 years old would increase value rather then devalue it. I have seen one going for about $3,300.00 thru Guitar Center website.

I am one of the unfortunates who have been out of work for 2 years,unemployment has run out and sadly I have to sell my one item I vowed to never get rid of under any circumstance. This is killing me to part with this guitar,I wanted one all my life,now I have to part with it.I just want to see about getting a fair price for it and not getting ripped off by someone taking advantage of my situation.

It sucks !!!! I wanted my son to have it when he gets older. Now he will just get a Fender American Strat and a Tokai SG : ).I have had to dump 5 or 6 guitars over the past year to stay ahead.

Same reason you would be selling yours' date=' so you would have to take what the current market has as price. It sucks, I know.

Unless it's 40 years old they don't really go up in value.

I don't think you'd get as much as you think it's worth. If you were to sell it today, I'd say you could get anywhere between $1,500 - $2,200. $2,200 only if a buyer is looking for that specific Custom and nothing else. Guys on other forums have bought used historic Customs for well under $2,000.

Even though I need the money,I wanted a Les Paul Custom since I was in High School which was about 36 years ago,so waiting to get one when I had the opportunity was a long work in progress. I would have kicked myself if I let this one go. I already sold my Les Paul AAA Standard and my motorcycle and I could just not part with this after days of pondering and after getting on this forum I have seen the passion everyone has about their instruments,and I share the same passion also and everyone is very supportive and made me reconsider selling my Paul. I was being offered between $1400.00 and $2000.00 and it just did not seem right for me to sell it. Also thank god we got the umemployment extended and my benefits left to be paid are between $1800.00 TO $2000.00 so it just worked out !!!!

Auction sites are a good source for determining the market value on your guitar. you also might look that model up at www.bluebookinc.com be advised there is a fee for that service.
