    You can't afford it at $2000, or at $500?
    Very honorable in how your approaching this possible deal with the seller.

    Maybe you can post a pic of the stand you bought... gotta have some porn :thumb:.

    Woah, hold the phone. I am not aware of anywhere on this earth a '74 Special would go for anywhere near $2,000, nevermind more than that. I have seen people asking that much for a Custom of that era, and occasionally selling for that much. But typically, these Specials with the minihum-esque PUs go for next to nothing. $500 is a typical price, I would say.

    My Vintage Guitar Price Guide of 2015 shows a range of $1400 - $1750

    Asking prices don't reflect value. But I guess I'm not up on the vintage price bubble. IDK how or why they would have skyrocketed compared to 5-10 years ago when they were worth nothing. It wasn't that long ago you could get a player's '69 Standard for under $2,000. These are the next-to lowest model in the Norlin lineup. But to be clear, I am not shitting on them, in fact I think they're pretty neat. Just not over $1,000 neat.
