    Kind of like flodshon said, do you want to fix it up and keep it, or, do you just want to unload it and make a few bucks off your investment?

    If you intend to keep it, why not spruce it up?

    If you want to sell it, you could offer it, "as is," and also offer the option of buying it at a higher price with the new bridge and whatever else it needs.

    Some newbies will want it "as is" because they don't have much cash, (it won't cost much, I expect). Some others might want it because they like to do rehabs.

    In either event, the Stud isn't one of the commonly collectible Ampegs, at least to date.
