Oh, FFS.... given that the top strap button is in the wrong place, what other nasties await someone ready to drop a K on this tatty example?!
Poor bloke is expecting a bit much, methinks??

A grand?! Bloody hell....

Looking at the advert

$300 for that work - you have been right royally done my friend.

It's quite a tatty example IMO. I wonder why he did't invest another few dollars to get some of the cosmetic problems sorted out

He'd spent all his money on Mr Sheen, strings & a switch, by the looks of it... Wink

I saw this one as well and got a really good laugh out of it. If his shop charged him that much then I know why the same shop valued it at this price. What a waste of time for a listing on this one. I agree that almost every other one I have seen in the past has ranged from $100- $300 for a mint one with case.

Less than an hour left and still no bid. I assume all those guitar collectors are waiting for the very last moment to pounce.Dumbo
