I find it interesting he represents the blue book value at $2,800.....that was the most recent MSRP.

The blue book appears to value it at between $650 and $750 (that is the lowest value noted), but I doubt that is taking into account the split in the top between the bridge and the butt of the guitar.  He seems to think he can get $1,600 for it as a buy it now....

Wonder what other delusions this guy has!

I swear, some people's children !!!

I didn't know they came stock with electronics. Even though it might be a good job, any alterations from stock usually takes from the price.

I didnt know they came with electronics either . If it was after market , why put a big hole in that rosewood body . There are less damaging options . Definitely hurts value .

I wonder if DB supplied it to Washburn, and the custom shop installed electronics as a special order.

Still not bad dough considering the split top and electronics. To me, the split means it's possible other warpage or humidity related issues could exist. Don't think I'd drop that scratch on a guitar unseen.
