    People on "ludes" shouldn't post ads.....o_O?????

    I think that is beyond "relic". Maybe someone will offer a few hundred to part out the neck, and some of the hardware. Other than that, it is a mutilated piece of junk.

    Is this the third or fourth time this guitar has been posted here this month?
    Someone needs a bumper sticker saying "Friends don't let friends do drugs......and then price stuff on Reverb."

    When you’re fishing, would you rather catch a 1 pound smart fish or a 50 pound dumb fish? This guy is fishing.

    What's most frightening is that CME is selling this thing at all, and as of right now there are 53 offers on it, and 3 people have it in their cart.

    The neck is probably backbowed because the guy who refretted it didn’t know what he was doing. Still, you can probably get a grand for it because it’s old and says “Fender” on it. Otherwise, you’re looking at about 400 dollars worth of parts.

    CME is offering resp. trying to sell it, that's all. Anything else, like offers and shopping carts is virtual.

    I'd say that is some free publicity - that generated so much website traffic for free...

    it's chicago music exchange trying to sell that thing. I wonder if it's a consignment piece. If not I wonder how much they have into it.



    Notice they've had 50 some offers made
