I purchased on in Fair condition for $475. Nobreaks, but faded paint and wear on the neck thru the paint in one place. They have the 400 electronics in them which is really nice. After a setup it plays smooth and is able to produce some sweet tones.

I contacted the BlueBook of Guitars and they did not have a listing although they did acknowledge that it existed. They will list it in the next Blue book as a Gibson Les Paul DC400 XPL. He could not price it, but it will probably end up as all of the other XPL's ...under appreciated for what they can do. I would guess mint condition will be in the $650 to $750 range.
