2 Les Pauls fetch over $300,000

Two ultra rare Les Pauls recently brought in a combined $329,000 at auction. The guitars, both lefty models, were a pair of Les Paul Standard Sunbursts from 1959 and 1960. According to Heritage Auctions Consignment Director Mike Gutierrez, the former is a legendary instrument. From artdaily.org:

The 1959 left-handed ‘burst is about as rare, and famous, as any guitar in the world. Collectors came after it in a very serious way, resulting in the almost $200,000 price realized. That enthusiasm translated to the rest of the offerings in the auction, as well.
