    Prices are all over the place, but i´ll take old wood conversion over a 40K JP aged and sign...it is ridiculous how a new historic can be worth more then a vintage 52 gold top...its insane to me.

    Conversions with vintage parts are as close as anything can get to the year 58 59 and 60 with the advantage that the wood is older then that of a real burst, old wood talks, and thats where the magic is at and the price tag is lower too.

    Times have changed alot regarding conversions it used to be the only way of getting a more vintage tone but if you are looking at spending $30k now a clean 56 goldtop would be alot safer buy and within reach

    At the end of the day these guitars are 3 legged dogs and should be priced as such the probabiliity of finding a buyer of the conversions loaded with vintage parts is quite slim if you are actually serious about selling them you should consider pricing options with repro parts IMHO

    might be why these are still for sale...

    AND, i would think you would appreciate people asking you how much BEFORE asking you to take any time to send them pictures.

    would seem a reasonable question to ask, particularly in a market that is as volatile as conversions.

    good luck, maybe the market will pick up again soon

    Maybe if you would actually PUBLISH the asking prices people wouldn't contact you so much wondering what the f'n prices are of these things. Seems to me like you are just asking for people to contact you by omitting prices so don't complain when they make offers... seems a bit like dick-movery on your part to me.

    I find that generally when somebody will not post a price, it's because it is over-priced and they prefer to talk to the potential customer to convince them otherwise.
