Previous owner swapped out pickups, bridge etc.  still have all original parts in the case.  I’d have to go back to very old email to get details, I forgot, really.  Plays great and looks fabulous.  Sometime I should take good photos.

 

That said, I think the colorful one posted before is the cat’s meow and wins the day!

It’s real...and it’s SPECTACULAR.  

Not a good photo but something. 

Thanks for the info. As I figured.  Here is mine. This is a photo from one of the previous owners and when I now look closely at this pic I think I see a Nashville bridge. Good, as I just bought

Good, as I just bought a new original type Schaller bridge for it. Just ready to be installed to bring it back to it's original glory. Lollar P90's in this one though, they sound good.

I love miiis but that is nuts with that whack on it!  Not too long ago they were not selling at 1500. 
 

i know, i know. Shut up. Im old and farted. 

I just took a closer look at the photos... ouch! Yeah, $2.5K is more than optimistic. I'd pay half that if I had the cash, but no more.

My favorites are Mitch's old natural one with the gold swapped out for chrome hardware, sorta like this:

and the one with the tort binding.  That one is beautiful!

Ah the good old days! I picked the CO with tortoise and carved back from Kiz long ago. Exceptional with the Lollar pickups. The one I got from Mitch was not as striking, but I kept it longer as I thought it was the better sounding and playing of the two, that being the sum of the parts Mitch installed. Kind of surprised me how long it languished in a for sale thread......

Kind of a shame that so many great guitars are in the rear view mirror.

I may be stupid and a Mlll is at the top of my Hamer list, but I can't justify that price!

What price would you consider justified?

For excellent condition 2k. Then go from there. I'd be willing to pay $1600.00 for the guitar on the Verb!

Then call GC. Ask if they'll deal.

I’ve seen a number of the red ones go for right around 1600 the past year and half.   Some how I keep missing one at that price.  They seem to hang around a bit longer at 2k and above.  I personally want a red one, but I wouldn’t pass up a natural one unless it had gold hardware. 
 

tortoishell c/o all bets would be off.  I might rob a bank for that one.

Just spotted on the 'verb:

Maybe optimistic at that price, but these aren't as common as those of us without one would like.

Gone, but not me! Hopefully someone in the HFC!!
