Hamer Dave posted a question in Ask the HFC ExpertsHey guys!! Got this early Sunburst. Seller disclosed body was busted/repaired, due to jealous girlfriend but NO break to the neck. I got it and can see the heel was also repaired, thus broken along with body. Section of binding in the area replaced (incorrect material), one non-original tuner, and though repair respray finish was pretty good, they used BROWN, instead of the proper red in the burst. Why?!!!! None of these were disclosed. I should also mention the neck angle now, isn’t what it should be, which I believe is due to the repair taking a way a bit of original back angle. Upper frets will also need leveling. Saddles can’t go any lower and action is just ok. Ideally, I’d like it a bit lower. He admits he doesn’t know much and wants to make good. I’d like to keep the guitar, but feel it should be valued less due to the mentioned items. He asked what I think is fair. Cost was close to $1500. What do you all think would be a fair partial refund amount? I’ve an amount in my head, but wonder if too low? Let me know what you’d ask. Thanks! p.s. will try to include photos
