    Owner is open to offers......I'd give $100, and not a penny more. And that's with free shipping.

    It keeps coming back and back and back again!

    Someone needs to buy this thing already

    I’d say 500 would be fair for the neck and hardware;)

    Looks like CTS pots. I have my doubts it's even 1970 neck, can't read any date. $500.00 is on the generous side.

    I think my money would go to a new one and get something usable

    I’m not usually a fan of parting out vintage guitars but there’s not a lot can be done with this one.

    Id probably buy the neck and spend a year looking for period correct body and parts, winding up with a nice non original vintage that would be impossible to sell for a profit .

    Not for me. Too many projects already.

    I will say.... that is one of least ugly attempts to reshape a tele I have seen. Infinitely more attractive than the Bloomfield abortion.

    Sad really. I like the neck. Although I wouldn’t pay much for it.
    Whoever priced that is an idiot or a jerk.
    But somebody will pay too much for it.

    It gets better...
    "Tech Notes: -The guitar plays well with low action. The neck has slight back bow so it sets up best with heavy gauge strings. 11s or bigger work well. It is currently set up with an 11-49 set. -The serial number dates to 1969-70"

    And the neck has a back bow so you have to use 11s . That says that the truss rod doesn't work.
