    It's a typo. They left out the decimal point. (Like the one they erased from the headstock.) It's supposed to be $38.00.

    "Perfectly Good 1987 Les Paul Ruined and Marked up 400% more than what it's worth"

    Fixed the title

    Except somebody with more money than brains will buy it, because for some reason people believe that some sort of magical guitar is what makes Slash a great guitarist, and not, I dunno, the fact that he practiced his ass off and is super creative, and would still sound amazing with a 50$ piece of **** Walmart guitar.

    Slash's wasn't even a Gibson so it's kind of pointless to point out the fact that it's from the "era" his was. It may as well be a Fender Mustang for Christ's sake ; if it's made in 1987 it's still from his era right? His was made in 1987 but based on 59 specs...

    Please God, someone buy this just so I have proof that dentists and lawyers are financially secure and that the Vintage Guitar industry will live forever.

    It was a 1959 replica built by Kris Derrig.

    which makes this even more funny, since the guy "slashed up" a 1987 lp which is nothing like what slash actually played

    I get a good chuckle each time Gibson does a Slash model that is built to the specs of the Derrig. Sure, make a clone of a clone of a Gibson. Why not? LOL

    Why someone would do this is beyond me. What a waste.

    I suggest using the "make an offer" button...not the "buy now" button. I don't think it's a bad looking LP, but the price is way out of line....then again, I've sold lots on Reverb and I tend to price high when I really am looking for offers, then I sell when it hits my "real" price.

    I got a chuckle out of the luthier Roman Rist saying that he doesn't "fault" Gibson for making a copy of their own guitar with their own name on it.

    Slash did actually have an 87 (or 2) that he had on tour right from the get-go. Before Appetite broke big he asked Gibson for an endorsement. They said no, but sold him a 87 'seconds' guitar cheap.

    I'm pretty sure the 87 is the one featured in the "Sweet child o mine' vid

    The only thing this guy needs to put a Slash on in order to sell this guitar is the price. What the hell is he thinking...

    Whoah bud nobody has the 10,000 it would be worth with a Floyd!

    Seriously though what would this guitar be worth in original condition (like well played, but not wrecked).. like maybe 1800? 2000 tops ? But it's been ruined. Its not worth more than 1000 bucks and he's asking 5 (good deal though considering original price 6200!) Insane.

    Slash's tone is almost %100 his playing style and touch.... no Slash LP is worth the money they ask for it.

    Save your money and practice more....
