That seems a premium price for an all original one in excellent condition, at least in my thinking.
Not my style of guitar so I wouldn't think about getting it, but I guess you could get the real thing for less, so unless he did an amazing job, it may be aiming a bit high.
Once I'm done with some current projects, I'm mulling over the thought of "repro'ing" some guitars that are no longer made - who knows, there may be a market for things like that; or at least I can have some unobtainable guitars.
What would someone pay for a Hentor Sportscaster like Lifeson's? A 12 string Spectrum like Rabin's? A doubleneck 350MA? Ah, one can dream eh.
Anyone remember the Electra 2236 that guy butchered (imho) and put on ebay a few months back? Called it a James Hetfield tribute guitar and put a $5K BIN on it.
The funny part was when he not only got questions about his sanity in asking so much, but when he actually posted the Q&A's in the listing.
If it's well built the quality will shine through of course, but it still has to be reachable by the pool of buyers that are out there.
