No relationship with the seller, but just a heads up and also interesting to discuss. It's mostly original (other than missing backplate, changed pots, switch and frets, and has been played hard (nicely reliced). Price $14,250. Thoughts? Mine: Price is probably in the ballpark especially if there's still some wriggle room. I don't watch the market for those as closely and there's got to be a lot fewer transactions too (smaller production numbers) so I could be wrong here. Personally I couldn't justify paying such a big premium for scarcety as I don't believe the average slab board to sound better than the average lam board, but to each their own of course. Especially with 1961s I would watch out for overly skinny necks. All that said, very cool guitar of course.
