    It doesn't look like thats all playing wear and tear, kind of looks like its been left out side at a gig for a couple Yrs.. should have some real nice character when restored..

    The skunk stripe rosewood board necks appeared by '76 but this one looks to be from around 1979 with those late '78 pot codes. Still a good candidate for restoration. Can you post any photo's of the front of the body without the pickguard and the back belly contour?

    The tuners are from the post '76 era as well.

    It looks to have been a late 70's at one point in time...there's very little original or unmolested left on it therefore very little vintage value besides what you can part out. Depending on whether the neck withstood whatever abuse its been through, or not, etc.
