You guys have been amazing with feedback on these guitars. Any thoughts on this one? How overpriced is it? Anything look suspicious?

Nothing jumps out right off the bat. Looks a lot like my old 66. I think the price is about 400 to 700 too much, but it's a nice looking piece. But, I'm not an expert on vintage so someone else may see something I don't.

I would feel that $2600 to $2800 is a more fair price.Also, are you close to the seller? I see shipping is $199. Depending on where you're located this might actually be a good deal. I sold mine in similar condition around September for $2500.

Looks like it's a 'faux burst'. Some people don't like them as there is no real wood grain. It was a CBS cost saving exercise to use up scraps of wood that weren't so good looking and meant they could glue 5 or 6 pieces together.

Does the Faux Burst status reduce the value?

Depends on who's buying.

Seeing as how it was listed 11 months ago, it's not exactly flying off the rack at that price. :-/
