    I can't believe the condition it's in... Was it a private estate sale?

    please tell us you got it for 500 bucks?! that would be the cherry on the icing of the cake for this score!!!
    it gives us all a glimmer of hope in still finding a gem guitar somewhere for peanuts before they send it to goodwill.

    That's quite a find! Did the sellers know the value of it?

    Please can we have more super detailed pics? Seriously. Nerds like me like to get into the details.

    Has it still got the original blend circuit?

    Beautiful guitar. It's deserves to have the strings put on correctly though.

    I promise to play the living daylights out of this guitar! She arrives soon, and I'll be giving a detailed review then, I promise.
    (sorry, but I've decided to keep the purchase price to myself - no it wasn't a pawn stars style rip off - but it was a very good price!)
