I agree 100% A Duffy Falcon might be a great guitar but that ex broken one is only worth parts on it to me - maybe $200-300. And then it would take many hours of your time trying to sell them = not worth the bother imo. So in fact it's worth zero to me If you bought this Duffy for more than $300 the dodgy repair might last 10 years or 10 hrs. Either way you'd never have any confidence in it and neither would anyone else if you tried to sell it. And on selling it would always be a problem and you'd always be offered just parts value for it.
