    Wow! What a quality axe! I wonder who the seller hired for creating the Ad as it is most impressive. Probably some New York Ad Agency. :smug:

    Well, it was definitely worth $25. Would love to know what it will eventually go for. That neck, at least (assuming it’s a legit 70s neck and in reasonable shape..). This is def. a time when you step back, put it on eBay for starting bid of a buck - with decent photos - and let the market figure it out.
