I am not trying to rag on anyone here, so please do not take it that way.

Is this guitar's street value really 23k?

Looks really nice, and if it is in fact all orig with one owner, that ups the price for sure. But is it just me, or is that a tad high regardless?

Nice guitar.
That's pretty quick to have bought the guitar in January 1969, when the pot was made in the last week of 1968!

It's a bit pricey, even by UK prices I am used to seeing. I nearly bought one for 12k in the UK, same build year. But, passed, as I wanted the ‘54.

No dot over the i with a long neck tenon means it's probably an early 69. Pot dates only mean the guitar couldn't have been built "before" their date.

No thanks..... I could find something in the Golden Era for that kind of money.

What is with the deep gouges on the back of the neck all the way through the finish?
How does that happen? Not from playing? Not to be too picky, but I know that would annoy me when playing.

That's damned right.

I'm thinking a '55 Black Beauty.
Unfortunately nice '55 and '56 Customs have asking prices a way over that. I recently bought a '56 with a couple of issues, and will be posting a slightly delayed NGD when I eventually have it in hand. (Long story to go with it... ;) ). It was in that ball park, and Vinnie, we definitely have similar taste...

I would like to own that instrument! But, it's out of my price range. Offer $15k and negotiate...
