    After a quick look... no date on that neck- saddles are 70s- case is later ( I think).
    So, tuners (presumably) may be original, potentially non-dated neck & potentially unverifiable body, with a collection of random other parts.

    Why would they sand off the neck date? Weird. Looks okay otherwise in my uneducated opinion (in spite of the mods).

    I'm no expert on these things, but is 6 and a half grand the going rate for a refretted neck with no dates, a body that's been sanded to hell and no other original parts (apart from maybe the neck plate)?

    I'll never understand the vintage guitar market.

    I want that loaded pickguard, at a fair price of course.

    This is not the “vintage market” as we understand it. It is the bubble market of uninformed greedy people trying to hawk junk. Buyer beware.

    Gotta love the “re feted” part. Any auction for a vintage piece by someone who professes no real knowledge of the guitar in question or the vintage market in general and who disavows any responsibility for the sale is laughable.

    I doubt very seriously that that guitar was really sold for $7500 with one bid.......but then I am not a prospective bidder on anything like that, bubble or no bubble.

    Ridiculous.

    There might never have been a date on the neck to begin with.
