Edit: It does have wear, scratches and chips. But I still like it.

Not sure if they have been swapped, them pickups have 12 adjustable screw poles like the original Super Twin 750 humbuckers. I wonder if someone has just ripped the covers off the original pickups? Gotta hope so.

Even with all that damage it's still a looker, very easy on the eye. cyclops (Love the colour aswell, looks like whisky....hmmm!)

With days to go and up to £205, it's more than I want to spend on anything right now. So, I'm not in the competition. Good luck with your bidding.

Ohhh, she's ni-i-i-i-i-i-ce! ❤
Beautiful finish, and the dings and scratches are more of a nuisance than terminal. Easily repaired.
Good luck John!

Looks like a family of rats have been nawing on the headstock. Is the color red? or caramel? ...have never seen one this color.

I had a quick look at the catalogues for the colour.

It's officially known as "Antique Cremona".........ehh...whatever that means!?! Suspect

The guy I bought the Prestige 150 off had 2 of these, 1 in that colour and the other in a darker shade. They were both gorgeous but the lighter one had the edge for me. The playing matched or beat the looks.
Its a shame it has so many chips and the pups are all wrong - missing gold coloured covers (or changed?) worth asking if the original parts are available.
