Gibson Les Paul
« on: April 05, 2015, 06:20:05 PM »
I have a Gibson Les Paul that I've had for years but during a drunk altercation another member of our band kicked it against the wall & cracked the neck right above the body. Drastically cracked. After punching him in the face I almost cried myself to death. I've gotten quotes as to how much it would cost to fix & it's definitely reasonable but I'm wondering if I should fix & sell? This has happened to me before & though the neck is fix there are still sound issues.

Beautiful instrument for sure, I love those Gibson Les Pauls. I've had a similar issue in the past. I ended up paying for the repair and kept the guitar for quite a while afterwards. It was fine at first but it did seem to develop a few issues after a while though. Really, I should have repaired it and sold it but it ended up getting stolen. Anyway, my advice would be repair and sell. They tend to hold their value anyway.

I'm sure it will come back again in order to understand it easily.

Here's an update: I ended up getting it fixed & it sounds pretty good. Not how it once sounded but people are telling me that's is mostly in my head (Pffft). Anyhow there's still the issue of the cosmetics. I was wondering if I should sand it down & varnish what I can or would that depreciate the value more?
