Still can't see a join, have posted some more pics above.

Does anyone have any idea what it's worth ?

Small mark on the base and lacquer scratch next to it (would polish out).

Very small mark on top can only see it in certain light.

Hardly been used so no wear anywhere.

Left-handed.

Bare knuckle pickups.

Original Tokai case (in good condition).

Any ideas thanks Nigel.

Well i don't see a join either. I seem to remember another guy from the UK with a guitar that had conflicting specs. Not being from the UK myself i have no idea what the market is like there so no idea on price. What do Gibson's run used over there ?? I'd use that as a price line myself.

It's difficult to value because there are so few lefty models around. It's going to be worth less than an equivalent righty but you probably already knew that. :(

Was there any writing in the neck pickup cavity? It does look to be a 1-piece back but the unbound fret ends and mid-range electronics point to a standard MIJ model. Where did you buy it from? Was it new? Was it a special order?

Do you know what models the pickups are? Aftermarket pickups don't generally add much value, especially if you can't identify them. Even if you could, you'd get more money back by putting the originals back in and selling the BK's separately.

I think you would be looking at about £1000-£1500 for a standard Gibson LP.

Anyone have any idea what model it it is ?

i am presuming by the serial Number it's a 2007

Possibly a one piece body with vintage electrics

Thanks Nigel.
