If you know guitars well, then you know exactly what you're looking at. This is a great example of an original 1952 Les Paul goldtop guitar. This was bought new by my grandfather and was passed down to me. I've had the guitar for a number of years but seldom play any more and think it's time to part ways.
Looking for $20k. It has been professionally appraised and authenticated by a few different guitar shops around the country, most notably by Gruhn Guitars in Nashville. PM if interested and I can get more pictures. Unfortunately, I do not have the original case. I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
