One of the old graphite resin molded models, which don't pop up very often. And when they do, the seller is usually asking a price right in line with this one:

Wow! At that price, maybe I should look into selling mine!

That's what you call a Hail Mary pass.

I like how they opened the bidding at a random number price with four significant digits, to make it look like people are already bidding.

But it comes across looking more like a foreign listing.

The photo of the interior made me smile.

I would have thought that the price of vintage instruments would have gone down since the turn of the century, or at least the financial crash. I seem to remember guitars and amps being much more popular, as well as harder to access, in the 1980s and 90s. I guess not.
