I've reserved the white LC in the pics above and will be trying it out next week.

I'll let you guys know how it goes.

A price tag of ?899 seems a little excessive to me given its condition.

I agree ! What kind if price should I be aiming for ? I already told them I was concerned about the lack of scratch plate and case .

Not to mention the obvious wear on the gold hardware and lack of rhythm/treble ring. It does have the open book headstock but that doesn't jack the price up anywhere near ?899.

I think they're charging more than double what it's worth.

Just to let you know, I recently bought a brand new LC107s with replica Lifton Case from Tokai Germany. Thanks to the favourable Sterling:Euro exchange rate I got it shipped for ?780 or there abouts...

I played the guitar , played and sounded fantastic , but I just didn't think it was worth 699 , it was in ok condition but had a few bits missing .

I think that was the right choice under the circumstances. The price was just nuts.

They'd reduced it to 699, but as great as the guitar was, there was a fair amount of dings, play wear which probably needed a dress and it had parted company with its scratchplate, its pickup selector ring, its strap buttons and its case.

I still thought that was too much,Nice as it was , it was a beater not a minter and they were asking the money for a minter.
