    Look at them flat frets, that's the way you do it! You play the guitar on the MTV!

    Yeah, that's how they came stock on several Gibson models a few years ago. Completely flat, like a runway.

    Fretless wonder.
    It's too hot to be discussing frets. I'm going out.

    And not much easier then to be honest. It would need work, so £750 is a bit steep in my book. £550 would probably tempt me if it wasn't blue...

    The annual Viking foot washing ritual!

    We usually celebrate it in Scarborough's North Bay during the Cricket Festival... :D

    I happen to like the color!

    Yeah, it's a bit expensive. He started at 1200 and has lowered it himself so an offer might not be out of the questuon. The frets are flat, like Gibson-flat. The funny thing is that they all look equally flat, which makes me think it was done on purpose, rather than from playing.

    They don't look naturally worn, the may just need crowning.

    Yes, that's what I'm thinking. 2 hours of PITA and it's done.

    I might offer him 750... I'll think about it.

    750? :p If we're going to be buying guitars for $200 more than they're worth, why don't you just buy my Squier Jazzmaster for $550? lol jk

    I sold a 1985 ST-57-115 for $525 Canadian in 2015, with original pickups AND a set of Hot Gold Lace Sensors.....that's only $435 US, I should have held on, maybe it would be worth like $600-700 US now?

    I would probably get twice the £350 that I paid for mine 25 years ago Everything else has much more than doubled in price over those years though... o_O
