'Pawn Stars': Rare Les Paul Gibson 'SG' Guitar (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The "Pawn Stars" (Mon., 10 p.m. EST on History) were the envy of guitar enthusiasts everywhere when singer Mary Ford's nephew showed up with a guitar case in tow.

Inside the case was a piece of guitar history: A cream, 1961 Gibson "SG," once owned by guitar legend, and Ford's ex-husband, Les Paul. Ford's nephew also had a stack of papers documenting Paul's tempestuous relationship with guitar manufacturer Gibson.

How could Rick and Corey Harrison put a price on such an artifact? Well, they were helped by the fact that the owner had a price in mind -- "You're getting history here" -- and he wouldn't budge until their offer matched it.

The price? A cool $90,000.

Catch up with the "Pawn Stars" every Monday, 10 p.m. EST on History.
