I am sorry I sold it  
Hi, Jean that is a very nice guitar. I had one and it was a 100 point guitar, perfect and it sold for $4,710 USD to a private auction. The buyer want that color and model saw me on stage with it and I put it up for bids. He missed it by the $10 USD and did find one down the line for $5,100. The right time and the right price. I do not know what 5% is wrong with your Gibson, or if it has an add on Bigsby tremolo that will drop the price.I will give you a very close selling price. I would go a bit high at $4,650 USD. Should you need to drop $150.00 USD.You should be fine with these numbers.I am all way very close, not a guess. Many people hold the guitar and look at some out dated book.I look at the sales of the last 30days real time. I like that guitar very much and Gibson paid many of them so they are not in the big money rare class, but a classic! Thank you Jean and if I can help in any way please contact me any time. Thank you Kevinpaul

Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.

Experience

The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.
