    Is this for real? Why isn't the serial number on the back of the headstock?
    Just wondering...

    Seems a little steep even if it's authentic. Yes/No?

    Not in the market, just thought I'd share.

    Sure is PURDEE though!

    It's a Made in Japan model. A "little steep" is something of an understatement. It's worth about $600 to $750, IMO. There was a guy trying to get $2,600 for a similar guitar on the classified ads on TDPRI. It's probably still there -- maybe the same guy...?

    I had a very similar model in black with gold hardware. S/N is at the base of the neck. I think I got about $6-700 for mine on eBay. That guy is on serious crack.

    yeah, that guy is crazy.

    To the point that I wonder if it's a scam.

    As noted in the TDPRI listing, that guitar (if it exists) is a nice guitar. I have one (a real '85). And it's worth $600-800-ish. Not $2600, or $2100, or whatever other insane price he wants to ask.

    Cl sellers can be quite nuts sometimes (or scammy)

    I had to give up on our local one. Nothing but overpriced stuff you can go buy new for less.
    Saw a $500 affinity once... omg.

    Someone has listed a Fender Starcaster (the cheap Stratocaster clone, not the hollowbody) for $600 on our local CL. The CL police are starting to jump on him though.

    hey scrimmer, theres one, a real one, same model, MIJ, same color, everything, on the Raleigh/RDU CL. He has changed the pickguard to aged pearl, but hes only asking $600. Its been on there for a couple weeks now, he might take less?

    I dont know if your looking for one of these or just giving us a laugh at that asking price.
