I love gold hardware... even those inevitably crooked tuners. Looks like a wonderful guitar with few signs of work; a little overpriced (commonplace) but promising. Remember -- these guitars can really vary in terms of weight and feel, so I'd want to give it a really good look, in person, before wrangling. I wanted a Norlin Deluxe for a while but could never find a real, living and breathing one (not online) that didn't have some significantly undesirable aspect to it -- weight, feel, or excessively ugly burst. That Custom looks really promising.
