This needs to go to someone with the skills to restore it, IMHO.

Brushy One String is great. I must get around to buying one of his albums.

Green painted fretboards on the other hand...

Not me. I'm just a regular twit. It takes a solid gold twit to paint a fretboard green.

fully understand but also understand some peoples desire to restore


I recently paid about  $150 AUS to get all the bits of a concord 1 6 string to AUS from the UK


too much by many standards but to me when I get her together the price wont matter

I was hoping that someone sufficiently skilled an experienced at restoration would buy it. That's definitely not me.

Hey Twit, someone has to do something to bring it back to life eh? You couldn't possibly make it look any worse than it is already!
