As a rule, the Kalamazoo made Gibsons are better than the Nashville ones. The brand new one is made in Nashville, but that's a ridiculously low price for it (is it an Epiphone instead of a Gibson? A new Les Paul is well over $1500, sometimes up to $3500). The way to tell if the 1977 and 1980s are made in Kalamazoo or Nashville is simple. Look at the serial numbers. If the 5th number is a 0 or 1 it's from Kalamazoo, if it's a 5 or 6 it's from Nashville.

: i was lookin for used gibson les paul standards and found a couple choices, one is a 1980 model with a few cosmetic scratches and the strap screw has been moved upward (the old one probably got stripped) ($875), the other is a 1977 model in tobacco burst with belt rash ($815), and the last is a 2001 model in mint condition ($710). i have heard the recent gibson stuff is shit, but would like ur input on whcih to purchase
: thanx a lot

: fred
