    I was looking at this one a bit when he'd had it offered for trade, but I didn't have anything in line with what he was looking for. A bit disappointed that the front and rear of the headstock were stripped, and it looks like a strap button was added and removed from the horn at one point. Supposedly original pickguard, though that would have to mean the "Melody Maker" inscription was worn off. Can't tell much about the frets, but the seller explained the lack of inscription on the pickguard was due to heavy play, so if they're original they're most certainly worn.

    Still, am I crazy for considering it? I dig that board.
