Repainted 1971 Les Paul Custom for $1000. Bad idea?

Would this be a bad idea? I know that repainting crushes a guitar's value. But I want a good player, and I know this is a great year for LP. ButI don't want to take a bath on it either. Comments?

It depends on what the paint job is actually like. Ask yourself if you want a playing instrument or if you want an investment.

LP custom?? $1000 ?? id have it. so long as it had original hardware etc.

Was it a "professional" refinish or some clown with a can of spray paint?

This is a killer vintage year, and was a great guitar.

Say's its a very professional/glossy paint job.
BUT ....BUT....with "hot rod flames."

You could always get it restored to its original glory. Perhaps later when you've got more cash.

Or just keep the flames...Don't suppose it has any pinstriping as well does it?

Play the blues and start playing tex-mex you'll fit right in.

I get the feeling that some of these remarks are poking fun a this fellows dilema, please lets try and be a bit more adult, and a bit more professional about this...

Can you install a couple of chrome pipes to go with the flames?
