  1. Gorgeous. What year/serial was this one, and what did it sell for? d
  2. I reached out to seller.

    Cracked neck (repaired) devaluation?

    Thanks for the replies. I wouldn’t have guessed so much depreciation. Appreciate it. D
  4. How much value is lost in an otherwise nice/good condition guitar with... A pretty serious headstock break/crack that had been decently repaired but not refinished? Clean break, not mutilated. And, with... An extra strap lock hole drilled in? Can this be calculated as a ‘percentage’ loss? Say 20%, where a typical $1000 dollar guitar getting reduced to $800, or a $2000 guitar reduced to $1600 in that example. Maybe 5-10% reduction for the extra strap lock hole? Like to get a consensus of what is fair or should be expected. Thanks, and stay well everyone. D
  5. Is there mention of the serial # ? Always curious.
  6. Tried a few times. No luck.

    ? Shipping a USA Sunburst from Germany back to US

    Thanks for the input. I talked with Fish & Wildlife Services, and read an article or two at Reverb on this. Need to include a preconvention certificate, confirming prior production. Labeling as preconvention when shipped. Also, they suggest that showing verification of production year by a serial number should satisfy verifying when it was made. Then they know no protected rosewood was harvested for the build since the new restrictions. Believe Brazilian Rosewood is prior to 1991. Being that it is coming back to USA (country of origin), I should expect NO customs/duties/tax fees, correct? F&W Services realize they need to make this practical for our guitars, but may take a couple years to see the process fixed. Interestingly, if I were to bring the guitar back home on a plane as a personal carry-on. No one would care. Frustrating. Dave

    ? Shipping a USA Sunburst from Germany back to US

    I was hoping I’d be exempt of cites being that it’s coming back to country of origin. Maybe I should call Fish & Wildlife Services to see what they say as well. They came up on a search of shipping.
  9. Hi all!. Having an early USA Sunburst shipped from Germany to US. Any special instructions besides stating country of origin as United States? Being it’s coming back to within miles of where it was manufactured, I expect NO customs or duty fees. Please confirm I’ve nothing to be concerned of. Thanks. dave
  10. Don’t tell me... They scalloped the neck too. Lol!
