Must sound great I guess... :wink: With those photos thers no way you can tell if those are the real thing or modern Relic jobs. The price seems to be, what should I say... a little high?

So if you stick them in your Warmouth-bodied, Squier necked Frankencaster, will they bring the value up to $2000?

But, the shipping is only 5 bucks. That means a lot these days.

Here's some more ebay. These came up on the LP Forum and obviously would bring some big money...

I think that some people just have WAY to much money, not a great guitar player does a great guitar make. I will never understand the NEED to get the old vintage parts, are they better? Maybe, will they make you play better, mentaly to some people, yes but in truth no. So stick with what's real and don't waste your cash chasing a load of crap with a price tag. If youi want something old I have a few rocks in my yard that date back to the begining of time...i'll even let them go CHEAP!. :wink:

While prices like that are extremely excessive, I would pay more for certain vintage guitars. Never just a part, but the whole thing. For example, I would really enjoy a pre-CBS mustang. I'd even more so enjoy a vintage compstang with matching headstock. A '70s jaguar or jazzmaster with the block inlays and matching headstock. Many vintage guitars are higher quality, because many are hand made. I don't get why anyone would want a vintage gibson, they seem exactly the same as modern ones to me. Vintage Hagstroms are super sweet guitars.

11 years ago some "collector" down in Boston
offered me 500 bucks for my pitted gold Strat
bridge pieces....I didn't sell 'cause I'm a believer
in chemistry of the sum of the parts (just like a
band of decent musicians can blow away a band
of virtuosos because the decent cats have "the
chemistry".) Anyway these folks are far too
obsessed. They should spend their money on
feed and groceries or good books or gettin' that
fence out in front right for the Winter or neuterin'
themselves so they won't be any more fools
runnin' around spendin' money so foolishly....
