    Dayum, I certainly would if I could. I could tell the missus we don't really all of that 401k. I mean does Alpo really taste that bad if you own a guitar like that?

    All those pennies under my couch might add to something

    It looks like the real deal to me, but I'm no expert.

    Doesn't that seem a tad bit pricey for a refin-ed '52?

    Refin and doesn't look like a swimming pool switch tip in the one photo you can sorta see it in. Still very nice and way outta my purchase ability.

    I don't need to spend that much money to suck, I can do it fine on less expensive guuitars.

    The hardware looks too clean to be original... And the tuners aren't.
    Would be worth a try or at least a better look, though...

    What's wrong with the tuners? Someone said they're not correct?

    I disagree with that. Hardware all looks very good to me. Given that it might be worth 30k maybe with original finish, price isn't necessarily too far off IMO

    Where's the patina? If it is original this things been spit shined - shame, shame!

    If I had 12k to blow I'd buy 3 Ron Kirn signatures and a nice amp.

    The thread says 17.5 the Craigslist ad says 12.5. I'm commenting on the 12.5 price.

    If I was going to spend that kind of money, that's what I'd get.
