    I love old Fenders, but that is a bit pricey for what it is.
    I'm sure the seller will get the $$

    Been badly serviced and priced at top dollar? Lots better deals out there on champs.

    That's fine. I didn't look at the quality of the service. I am not trying to make an argument that anyone should buy this, but someone will. I guess I could have simply not posted this here so others wouldn't know about it...

    No, sharing is great! We all love seeing cool stuff. But I don't want someone to think that's a screaming deal as it's pretty routing to get them in the 1000-1500 range unless they are showroom shape.

    That's right. It's fair to clarify that it's not a screaming deal. I never said that it was, but perhaps the very fact that there's a thread on it will make someone think it is, unless that is clarified further.

    Just get a kit built or build one! . Not much left after servicing one of these. Reverb is for the clueless
