PSA: FB/AUS: 1982 Prototype, not what you'd call minor modifications...

Recommended Posts

$1000?? Dream on.   

Meanwhile, our own @hikarateboy is selling one for $850.

It would be a great beater... for $350.

Yes. It's a great project starting point.
$1,000 is crack on crack violence.

The visual for 'crack on crack violence' is disturbing.

It could be worse.  Someone could have filled in the holes and refinished the guitar.

If you mean the original holes, yes, absolutely.

Just to beat my point to death, here is Ted's Prototype (which has received just about zero love) on Reverb.
I got the price wrong, but it's still a bunch cheaper than the above POS.

"I just threw up in my mouth a little bit, ugh...  "

 

Why do you hate Ted's so much? It actually looks pretty sweet and is a pretty great deal @ $850.

 

 

Edited for clarity.

The point is $850 gets a near perfect guitar versus $1000 gets you a guitar that has been ruined.

Dammit you guys. It's too early to be 'splainin' stuff.

See Drew threw up right after Kiz posted Ted's picture, so I said......

So sorry.

$1,000 AUD is about $700 USD. Not that I would give $700 for it.

I missed that it was in Australia.  $700 is still twice what it's worth.

It's not $700 USD, it's $738.49 + $258.47 Shipping via Reverb...

You could always look at it as "chambered" or "semi-hollow"...

Holy crap.  How could that be true? But it is!

We're back to a grand. ...and Fantasy Island.

And then some CITES hassle for that lovely rosewood neck.
