    I agree. Bit more than a little steep! (at least so for the U S) But Austria, perhaps supply and demand dictates this price?

    It's in line with recent asking prices. No idea whether it's in line with recent selling prices.

    That Alternate Reality Tenor Tele listing ain't got nothin' on this one for asking-price chutzpah:

    https://reverb.com/item/56242968-fen...ind-surf-green

    $5000, marked down to the low, low price of $4000....for one that's been refinished and given the "road worn" treatment.

    You could buy one of these others listed for 1200-1300-ish, spend the same ~$700 seller spent to have theirs refinished and relic-ified, and still save a mint versus that listing.
