S'ok, I'm just a bit wary of posting a price in case I get lynched on here.

For sale at $4k. The early Deluxes (70-73) for sale on Reverb are around $3500-5500USD, typically over 4kUSD. So I think it is good value. The later 70's ones you can pick up for $2500USD but I don't think they are as good, or as desirable. They often weigh a metric ton as well.

Local folks are welcome to try before you buy, as usual, and I might do a partial trade if something tickles my fancy.

The '76 on TradeMe I sold 3 years ago for $2500, it was pretty rough though, I did some work to it to tidy it up, it played nice. It was pretty heavy, refinished badly and had a maple neck. I'd buy it back (if I had any cash) for $2500 but no more.

This '72 looks like a much nicer guitar.

Thanks SB, I really appreciate your going to the trouble of posting this. There are always exceptions, but I think it is true to say that the early 70s guitars are now becoming desirable, because they are better.
