Hello, I found this for sale locally but the seller claims to not know the maker...strange huh? Anyone know if this is a good deal for $500? It looks like the sides of the fretboard are chewed up a bit. Thoughts? Email me ASAP at lougheryg at yahoo because seller is packing out on Wednesday <sigh>. Here is the link....
