Hi Andrew,
I wouldn't buy it, but others would. I'd guess someone might pay $50.00 for it.

I found it interesting that someone backed out of the deal of $185 for it. I offered $50 but the seller would not take it, guess his family heirloom is worth more than that to him, after all he has no money in it if the story is true.

Buyer probably came to his senses, or the drugs he was on wore off. :lol: If its a family heirloom, he should keep it in the family. :wink:

As the seller states, it's a homebrew set. It looks like the coil started out as a slide tuner but the slider part was taken off and tap switches were put in it's place. Maybe $45 max because it just looks so primitive.
