    Wow, I had no idea that a 59' Les Paul went for that much back in 2008. I thought they capped out at about $150k.

    Now's my chance for a 59 Paul then!

    Not. Still, maybe now's the time to get a 50's 350. You've got an ES-5, right?

    Yep. 1956. Same year as Carl Perkins. One of 39 made that year in natural.

    Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton both love those guitars. I had a chance at one once but it had neck issues :(

    I wonder what a good one would go for now?????

    I should be getting my Les Paul back from the shop tomorrow. I had Burstbucker Pros put in it as well as rewired 50's style. I also got all of the pots changed to 500k's and caps replaced with Paper in Oils.

    Review coming soon.

    I think the Kay Barney Kessle with the full Kelvinator headstock is a sight to behold.!

    This one, known as the Jimmy Reed twin is pretty cool. They have necks like the working end of a baseball bat.

    I have one of these, but it's the Silvertone version. Sunburst with white pickguard and crown design inlaid in the pickguard. Very cool looking, but unfortunately these don't have a truss rod, so thanks to Texas weather the action on mine has gone to :fu: and I need to have the neck reset.

    Yeah I love Page's that he uses in It Might Get Loud. Although I think his is a custom shop, not a vintage, which is pretty cool.

    It is a Custom Shop. He said he bought it in mid-200's and loves it.

    Here are a few pics of some well known 350's and 350T
