    Wow!!!!

    When I was on Facebook i used to browse the small ads. If i spotted something going for too little and the ad owner seemed legit enough (how can you tell right?) i would message them to point out they'd underpriced.

    One woman wanted to give away some napoleonic scrimshaw (she had no idea what it was) for 10 for example. I've seen it go for $300 online.
    The other was a whacky 60s electric guitar - the model of which the likes of George Harrison cut their teeth on... was worth rather more than the lady was advertising it for.

    I picked this one up today. The owner had an appointment in St. Louis so we met. It's very clean and structurally sound, but does need a significant amount of work. The bridge has a few cracks, any of which alone would be very repairable, but I'll just make a new bridge for it. The neck is bowed and probably needs a reset. The fingerboard is pretty dried out so most likely I'll make a new fb and put a carbon fiber bar in the neck. The pick guard is in great shape, but about halfway unattached. Since I will do the work, the price was more than fair.

    I have another just like it that was in nearly the same shape, but much rougher condition. I did all of the above repairs to it and it is a sweet little tenor. I may get around to shaving the huge braces on both of them some day.

    It will be a while before I get to it, I'm buried under repairs. I will get to it though, and I'll post pictures.
