    Wow, I think that is pretty cheap? I thought '52-'57 conversions were around $20K?

    do these pictures of the neck joint seem problematic ?

    also it says the PAFs have never been opened but the solder looks pretty shiny and new, and the stickers are so much less worn than the ones I've seen. Its so hard to do this stuff from a distance.

    Hoss, that's cool you know him & have played this guitar. I am most intrigued

    This guitar was also owned by two other well known forumites before.
    I don't know more about it's history or details than the current owner does and what he writes on ebay.

    Since so many asked: I am not the seller of the instrument.
    The guitar is located in Austria.

    Just found it on Ebay and thought I share it. Guitar looks very shiny to me, but I am not a vintage expert. I leave that part to you! :thumb:

    That is my old conversion. It was architected by Dean Goodwood, and I got it from Charlie Daughtry. I kept it for a number of years and only decided to part with it because I needed funds for another vintage piece. I sold it to a friend (another forum member) who then sold it hoss' friend.

    It is a great guitar, totally in the Burst tone league. Absolutely insane neck PAF tone. Unmolested double blacks and all hardware is period correct. I even installed a recut 50s pickguard in it (verified by Terry Mueller).

    Honestly I am surprised to see it going cheap, but we have been selling it among friends and nobody is making any profit, just selling it for its cost. That is why it is a great opportunity for anybody looking for a great conversion. And if you are European it is SO convenient to have it here in the EU...

    I got plenty of photos and all the info you may need about the guitar, so just let me know if you would like to know anything else.

    I'm afraid that'd be me making the most of her ladyship being away for a few days

    No, no, no It's a scam. I have the original sitting in my front room and it's definitely not for sale!

    Probably a hijacked account. Can someone report it to ebay, please?
