hey guys, as many of you know i have my standard strat up for sale on here, but a friend of mine has a gibson les paul voodoo that he wants to trade me. the guitar is freaking awesome looking IMO and worth alot more than my strat, but here is the thing, a while back at a gig the headstock broke off. the guitar has been professionaly repaired and has 2 bolts where the headstock meets the neck now to keep it from breaking off again. its a pretty clean job but the back has never been finished over again. thing is, would this be an awesome trade on my end? or do you think i would regret it being that the voodoo is in the condition that it is in?
the guitar still plays very effectively and is in perfect playing condition and the action is low. i am mainly worrying about future problems it may have. and the back does not look so hot
i can post pics up of the guitar and the headstock if it can help you guys determine.
Going by the way you constantly trade/sell gear, the damage to the LP would give it terrible resale value, so not unless you fall in love with it and want to keep it, I'd pass on it. Try putting the strat on CL if you haven't already I'm sure your get some interesting offers there.
