    I hate the old "Please do your research" line B.S just price your guitar and do your own research to find a realistic price.

    I guess they're hoping you'll look up reverb as your research and offer some ridiculous inflated amount?

    I use reverb's price guide and send the link to the seller.
    They'll then say that their item is worth more and send a link to a high 'asking price' ad. lol

    Couldn’t agree more about the do your own research send your best offer. Anytime I inquire about these they are very disillusioned. Most recently a 60s Martin where he just wrote back “10k USD”. Ok bud...

    I just did some research: ;)

    A made in USA stamp indicates 1970 or later, doesn't it?

    This also means it's a Norlin Era Gibson, correct?

    Not that I'm saying this is a bad thing, but the seller wants to distance this guitar from being from the Norlin era...

    I wonder what year the serial number and pot codes indicate?

    I also hate arseholes like him who put the name of every manufacturer they can think of in their title, ad, or tags so that their guitar comes up no matter what you are searching for.

    That tells me that they're looking for trades of those makes.
    And I respond accordingly if I'm interested.
