    Great deal for a fine guitar. I hope everything's legit. It's too heavy for an old man like me.

    It's a PayPal deal so I'm protected. Looks just like my 1977. The headstock is certainly real. I'll keep ya updated

    Yeah I know.. I know.. :) Should arrive within a week? Couldn't let that deal go by. If it is what he says it is it's a score. I'm hoping its a Fretless Wonder. never had one of those before.

    I'll let you know if it's real. Instead of just sending an email I told him to send me a PayPal request for payment. The invoice has listed on it exactly what I'm paying for. This way I'm protected from fraud. If its fake...I doubt it....if it never shows up I'm refunded. Can't go Wrong.

    Frankv... Flip it to me.

    If it's being sent Fed Ex, have the shipment redirected.

    PM me with the price. I'll do $1,500 right now. Fastest $500 you'll ever make!

    Whatever you decide, don't redirect...you may limit or eliminate your buyer protection

    I didn't get to see the original ad but I hope it works out for everyone.

    There are still some good deals out there! I hope this was one.
