    $930,000 price, plus buyers premium.

    Gibson Guitars refused this guitar when it was offered - another stupid decision from them.

    Very cool, especially those early phantom coils. Love the steel rod for the bridge.

    EVH and Les shared a love for hacking things up to make stuff do what they wanted.

    No wonder they were such close buds.

    Surprised Tommy is selling it. Still, it'll bring a pretty penny, no doubt.

    Wow. That thing has been hacked and modded to hell and back.

    I'm so old, I remember when people didn't get excited about old, chewed up test equipment. :P

    Les Paul Number 1 - Auction Block

    The mods and myths of Les Paul's 'number one' Goldtop | Guitar World

    This article has tons of detail photos and text about the guitar, and how Les hacked it up experimenting.
    Seriously, if this was on my bench I'd throw a fit because of all the alterations done with a hammer and "a hot screwdriver" according to Les.

    Right now auction estimates are around $100,000. I think it will bring a mill, easy.
