Are you sure they are Classic 57's?
None of the hardware or electronics are original.Dave's guitar had a similar one like this with the serial number sprayed black over it for just under $10,000. His sales manager Tylor Fischer is a very difficult fellow to deal with, he would have his pink slip in my biz. I would say you have the real deal here that has been fixed over the years in service, what are the pickups in it? Pickups alone could be worth more than what you are asking.
Amy Kurland owned The Bluebird Cafe until she retired in 2008, and she's on Facebook. You could try contacting her and see if she knows anything about it.The serial number is there so any is free to investigate. If you find a definitive answer, I would really like to know.
BTW, I got this on a trade deal about 10 years ago.
