Hahahah yeah a friend of mine ended up getting a 61 clipper from a guy who brought it from his uncle in 63. He brought it to the shop and I fell in love. A week later I see the 59 clipper I have hanging in guitar center. I went back and trade a like new Gibson les Paul 60's tribute and a ton of cash. After an hour of being bent over the barrel I left with the clipper. There are some rough spots on her but nothing that effects the play ability. The ol girls a lot like me got nicks, scratches, scars and tattoo to show she been somewhere.

Looks pretty clean in the pic, and it’s got the one-year-only white pickup. Cool!
