looking for a Gibson LP Deluxe 1977 Gold Top

For my 30st birthday, I have decided to buy a vintage guitar. The one of my dream is a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe model with a characteristic Gold Top. From 1977 to match my birth year.
So far, I have been to music row on 48th street, to Matt Umanov in Greenwich Village and to Guitar Center on 14th st.  (and on ebay).
If you know where I can find this beauty around NY for a decent price (I haven't found a price tag under USD 3300), please post a comment. Meanwhile, I'm still looking for a Gibson LP Deluxe 1977 Gold Top.

New York, New York

Very exciting. I have arrived in the big city. I feel like I have to sing the song...
I'm gonna be a part of it, New York, New York.

Out of Australia

I'm leaving Australia in 30 mins. Writing this from the Qantas Business Lounge, gazing at the view of Sydney skyline. There hasn't been such a great weather in days but yesterday was great as well and I'll remember my last surfing sessions probably forever. I'm leaving when I was just getting good. or sort of. I'll have to come back, but for the time being, I'm Out of Australia.

the last wave

I'm just back from Bondi beach were I have had fabulous day of surfing.

I'm going to miss this in NY, especially the sun setting down over Bondi with the light going through the waves.

Will I be back soon? Who knows. For the moment this is my last wave.

smashed in Sydney

Ouh, i've just come back from a big drinking evening with colleagues (my farewell). Just posting this seems like pole vault in the Olympics.

Yeah mates, I'm smashed in Sydney .

glad he won't have to listen to Missy Higgins anymore!

Australian are quite obsessed with own-grown beetroot and own-produced music - so when you put the only music channel* on, it's always a Missy Higgins marathon... of course with a bit of Silverchair, Powderfinger and some for beetroot burgers - Aussies are not monsters, they are actually very nice people.

* (at least the only one I've got on my basic cable, Max)

I'm leaving in 2 days and I'll have great memory from my stay here... but your truly is glad he won't have to listen to Missy Higgins anymore!

very frequent flyer

In just one month (July 27th-Aug 27th), I have been flying from Sydney to Paris through Dubai, taken the Eurostar to London and back to Paris, driven to La Rochelle and back to Paris, then flown back to Sydney and I am now booking my flight to New York through LA.
By my non-Rockstar non-Consultant standards, I consider myself a very frequent flyer at the moment.

It's grey sky and pouring rain outside. I'm watching season 1 & 2 of Entourage on DVD.

Yep, I'm entouraged.

back down under, mate

I arrived early this morning and I should be sleeping by now but I have a bad case of blocked nose which the plane dry air made worse...

It feels strange to be here in winter cold after a week in south of France and my sun tan is clearly setting me apart.

I have mixed feeling about having to come back here for 2 weeks but still, I'm back down under, mate

London, baby yeah!

It's awesome to be back in London for a week, especially when this week is the first of the summer with a nice summer weather - according to locals.
