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?

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

Hate to to shatter you illusions (well ok, its kinda fun :D ) but I'm hoping to get my back pinstriped as soon as I get the money, not flamed tho...that would be cheesy, about £80 an hour tho so it'll be a while yet!

I think we managed to scare off another new Guitarsite poster. :lol:

Atchly, I do feel a bit saddened if we've let the poster down. I still say that guitar is worth the dough, putting aside some money for a nice refin.

OTOh, I feel a new series; "Pimp my LP" is in the making :lol:

I think he got the sensible advice in the first 3 follow ups, these 'whats my guitar worth' posters rarely hang around for more than a day after they post their question, (who said 98.8% of statistics are made up on the moment??) the rest of it is a bit of payback.
I think he realised (if he ever read it) it was just some harmless fun, good suggestion on the 'Pimp up my LP' though bass.

"Pimp up my LP" :?: :shock: . You need to get Mrs Lee off "Deal or No Deal" and watch some more MTV if you want to spot the blinging from the minging. "Pimp My Ride" was the prog I was referring to :lol:

I was rather confused when I first watched Pimp My Ride as to why the host kept speaking about some exhibit. Then I found out his name is Exhibit and he talks in 3rd person.

Pimp my LP, great idea.

I wonder if the lap-steel player's forum already has a tarted-up-instrument thread going?

"Pimp my Slide"... :?

dont forget that if this is the origonal paint job then it may be worth much more , especially when the fashion changes and people will pay more than its worth !
