After-market item, seller is asking for $2,200. It’s a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe 2015. We know that 2015 is a very difficult year for Gibson with that altered Les Paul script at the headstock & the Tronical auto-tune device that plagues the credibility of the instrument’s brand name. Nut material is metal.
Owning a 2015 Gibson is equally very difficult for sellers, there are no fortifying features in the instrument to leverage attraction. The Tronical is the ultimate bane in the instrument. Buyers will stay well away from a 2015 unless there’s substantial price reductions with the instrument in very good condition. Can this particular model sell for that asking price?
Unfortunately, these issues here are compounding reasons why we shouldn’t pay more than $2K for this guitar:
Dear Gibson 2015 owners, if there’s anyone remotely interested in your instrument, please pay close attention to them. More importantly, swallow your pride & accept a 50% consideration in terms of price. Do not propagate the belief that 2015 instruments are collectibles, they are bumps in the manufacturer’s retail goodwill & Tronical would tell you Gibson owes them money & had to drag their bums to court for payment (Disclaimer: Issue might have been settled already). Also, the Tronicals would become slow charging over time & they die off faster when in use. I’m not putting anyone down for selling a 2015 Gibson for sky high prices, they have their reasons for doing so. Anyway, Swee Lee is clearing the 2015 Deluxe for $2,561 (look under Hot Deals).
Wishing everyone a good weekend ahead ?
