Dude, $1,700. Spend $15 on a set of strings. You're sitting in first class wearing frayed sweatpants.

He might also give it a clean, fix the wonky bridge cover, and maybe explain all of the extra body holes... from another pickguard perhaps, or seeing that they are a mirror of the current pickguard, maybe the righty user flipped the pickguard?.. not sure about the darker holes/ burn though..

Looks like a conversion from an EB0 to me. I'd want to see the bridge pickup cutout. Did Gibson convert some themselves?

Yep, definitely a 1969 EBO- the bridge pickup and toggle switch are non-original mods, and given all the right side pickguard holes probably righty owned at some point.
