Hey, Pawn Stars on the History Channel is fascinating. They’ve had a couple of episodes on guitars so far. The first part of this video has to do with a restoration of a 1942 Gibson L7.
There’s another episode about a 1960 Les Paul which I haven’t had time to look for yet. Turns out a guitar expert on the show finds it’sreally from the seventies–a difference in thousands of dollars in worth (on the minus side).
