I had a mint 57 Gold top - Lee Roy Parnell with the Ellis pickups, when I tried to sell it, I wasn't able to get even close to 3K and the pickups are worth ~500 alone.
Lots of crazy prices the last 6 months, but not much is moving.
Asking prices on most every guitar has gone up insane. Not sure if much is selling at these prices. I was looking for a Ric 360 and all the sudden they went from $1200-1500. Most are asking 2.5K or more, so I'm sitting this out for a while.
