Always interesting to see them come up, but caveat emptor, this is lacking an EMG horn (small Expert one, poor condition, probably a makeshift repair, possibly even two broken parts spliced together) - re-motored leaving an extra hole in the side - soundbox in iffy condition with mangled and holed diaphragm...

The auctioneers describe the case as Walnut, but it looks like Oak to me.

Could have gone for maybe twice that in good condition with the right horn...
