    A tempting price right now, but I'm sure it will go up.

    Maybe not so great once you factor in shipping for the whole guitar.

    Over here a good example would go for EUR 1.600 and up. A player-grade one will go around 1.200.
    So even considering shipping costs and tax this beat-up darling would be a steal at USD 350,00...
    Yes it is authentic.
    Here`s my vintage Corvette`s headstock:

    They changed the 2x3 tuner arrangement to the 2+4 in 1964.

    Looks like the handy-work of Pete Townsend.

    Well everyone has a different view of value.
    Those pups are not worth more than $20 to me and the tremolo $1 :)

    I'm assuming the buyer would pay shipping as an extra.
    That will vary greatly depending where you are and the advert does not show case :)

    nothing to check Loud :)
    Those old pups are very beat up and we don't even know if they work.
    Good chance the bigsby is non functional too.

    To me personally the pups are worth $0 but to someone else who likes them I still think $20 would be fair.
    How much are they new?
