Vintage Les Paul guitar to be raffled by Welsh charity shop
A vintage Les Paul guitar is being raffled off by a charity shop in Wales after the shop manager learnt of the musical instrument's true value.
Rose Martin of the Anglesey A Team shop had initially put the Gibson Les Paul Custom 1957 VOS Black Beauty on sale for just Ã‚Â£10 before being alerted to its true value by the number of people interested in it.
One customer offered her Ã‚Â£800 for the guitar but Ms Martin has decided to hold a prize draw for it instead, reports the Anglesey Mail.
"So far, we've sold 240 strips of raffle tickets, with five in a strip, costing Ã‚Â£1 a strip," she said. "We'll leave it in the window for four weeks."
Earlier this week, it was revealed that fans of Nickelback will have the chance to come up with the name for a custom-made Les Paul guitar designed by the band's frontman Chad Kroeger.
