Les Paul Guitar (knockoff, see left)Bid high to be the
new master of this 1970's sunburst Les Paul Standard model guitar.
The most popular non-Fender guitar of all time! During the 70's

guitars. This is one of those guitars made in Asia, it is as
close to the real thing as you can get. It's a PERFECT copy
