I’d buy it if the price was low enough. There was a series of articles on Guitar dot com that outlined a Tokai or something that was totally modified into a 54 Les Paul clone. I would love to do that on one of these!
a bit hefty at 995 GBP... was this refinished with nitro? If so might be worth it... I could see how I would pay such amount for a refinished instrument (assuming it was well done).
But if the original finish is poly and is still poly, I can't justify myself paying this much for this instrument. I'm not a nitro cork sniffer, but I'm willing to pay a little more for one since they do feel a little better in my hands.
Probably priced right at fair market value in my opinion as you're getting a top of the line Edwards, tho I'm not sure what the shipping and tax situation will be for ya. Good guitars especially if you like the antiquity flavor. I've owned 2 of them.
