Anyone else following this saga...?

I suspect the guitar is not all it appears to be. The shape looks strange and the cut fret at the end of the board (added 22nd?) is most un-Selmer like. A barge pole length is the nearest I would go.

To be fair the seller is playing a straight game - it is just the bidders who are writing their own script.

Yeah, the body doesn't look curvy enough. Or is it an optical illusion , 'cos i'm just not used to seeing a bare body without any bridge on it.

Frankly, not sure the eyeliner-and-creosote look is gonna catch on. Might be real but boy has this box been put through the mincer.
