    Now I understand all of those "unboxing" videos that people watch! The anticipation was killing me. Imagine what the kid's heart was doing inside his chest.

    Yep. He has a second video about it where he takes it apart to inspect. All of the wiring and pickups are stock. The tuners and pickguard are the only non-original parts. I'd say that he got a great deal. Plus, with the amount of views, his money from YouTube will cover the purchase.

    It ended at $7,000+ USD. Maybe $7,200 and change, or something close to that.

    I also love how you can see at the edge of the worn areas the off-white that the limed mahogany finish was when it left the factory. That thing has probably seen a fair amount of smoky bars in it's life.
