    but do you really think he will get 300k for that right now

    I know a like 3 or more years ago they were going for 400k but it seems like 200k is the standard right now.

    Thanks for sharing! But $300,000 for a guitar! I know that's not the highest they go for, but wow! But if someone's got the money...

    I think their rating of 9/10 for this guitar's condition is a little optimistic, personally.

    That means that the original solder connections have been broken, and replaced, but even though they put the original pickups back in, the connections are no longer "original". That's something that the people who are actually willing to spend that kind of money for a guitar (collectors/cork-sniffers) really take a look at, and in most cases, look the other way if they're not 100% original.

    Not "optimistic", but more like "overzealous".:thumb:

    This guitar must have been kept in a vacuum to keep those tuner buttons so clean for all these years, they look like the ones on my guitars they are so clean and bright.

    Awesome top and back for sure.
