By my calculations, by the time you source all period correct parts, install new frets and fill the huge hole from the Kahler, scrap and prep the whole guitar and finally respray in a dark nitro colour, you'd probably be better off with a complete but beater Norlin.

From what I can see its a 70's Deluxe so a beater can be had for $1200-$1500 with enough patience. And when sellers start with childish name calling and stupidities, I walk no matter how good the deal!

Just my two cents :)

Non original case and no hardware included AND routed for a Kahler at one point too!

When i made a fair but low offer the seller went off on a tirade of nasty name calling towards me and stated that this was a Norlin classic and easily worth what he was asking.....

Sigh....whatever you say buddy :)
If you are going to slander me, why don’t you tell them the WHOLE story??

My ad says US only. Viktor asks if I can ship to Montreal. I reply that I can look into the cost and let him know.

I went to my local shopping place and returned with the info, $250 plus his customs cost.

Then he low balled me at $550 plus $100 for shipping.

I go out of my way to go get a price and without trying to work a deal, this clown makes an offer that doesn’t even include the shipping.

Hell yeah im pissed! So I fire back. I’m not trying to get rich on this thing, but come on man.

Then he proceeds to bash my item. This is the last of 4-6 projects that I’m selling off and based on the prices I’ve gotten, this isn’t far fetched, but I am WILLING TO NEGOTIATE.

Rather than leaving it alone, he decides to put me on blast here?!

This is now harassment and I really like how he messaged me the thread as prof of further harassment!

Really mature Vik!

No my offer was actually $550 PLUS $250 shipping.

You are of course free to decline my offer but you needed to go off on a tirade and then call me a "swine" and now even a "clown" ??

The whole point of Reverb is that you are free to ask any price and buyers are free to offer what they see as fair!

Did not like my offer? Understandable. Did you need to go off and include insults and name calling too? Doubt it....

I was professional at all times while you quickly showed lack of maturity with your name calling. I ended it by wishing you best of luck on your sale :)

You’re twisting words to come out sunshine and roses to your elitist forum buddies.

If YOU put in the swear equity into this guitar (yes I have all original parts I would have offered to you IF you wanted to negotiate), this could be a great guitar.

But instead you chose to be a fuckin asshole and a crybaby.
