Get Your Wallet Out

What's the guess? I think it is going to go for well over $500,000. Maybe it will end up in a museum one day, I hope so.  


As Les Paul himself put it in 2002: "Love to play, love to entertain, love to make people laugh, make 'em happy."

Christie's has put a $100,000-150,000 estimate on the instrument. But Gene Paul wonders how you value history.

When Mason asked What he hoped would happen to the guitar, Paul replied: "I'm gonna miss it, but I miss Dad more. He said to me one time, he said, 'Do you realize how many light bulbs Edison made before he got it?' And that kind of rings in my mind. 'What's Edison's first bulb worth?' That's how much it meant to Dad."
