    What do you think a refin `68 is worth these days?

    It`s a really nice opaque aged white refin, with a great RW board. ( Only body refin. )
    Original pickups and hardware. Repro pickguard hiding a pretty bad humbucker routing.

    Looks really good!

    £5k or €6k as described, wouldn't seem out of place in the UK..... Maybe even reasonable...depends on the market in Norway, I guess.

    Is that a realistic price in the UK? That`s too high imo. The one I`m talking about is in the US btw.

    Just a bit curious of how much you tele experts would value this for. I know it`s hard without pics, but it looks fantastic :)

    for a refin its expensive

    That is more or less the price of an all original. Refin cuts the price by 40-50% so we're talking about 3K€

    Really? I was looking at 69 Thinline refins 2 or 3 years ago at around £ 3.5k. Guess I should come shopping in Italy!

    I don't see a 40-50% drop in value with a refin in the US market. I think it depends a lot on the quality of the refin, color, etc.

    25-33% is what I see retail differences. Not sure what guitars really sell for though.
