I wouldn’t ever buy a guitar with a break repair. It would always bother me.

It’s the same reason I don’t like Epiphones and their scarf joint.

All bets are off these days!
But I figure that guitar is about 2500 bone stock.
Headstock breaks used to mean 50% off, bang.
Not so much anymore.
More like 25-30%.
I recently bought a 71 Deluxe.
Routed with one hole too big (Antiquities), Schallers and a hole for a micro switch.
I think I paid too much at 2k, but I totally fell in love with it.
Tons of honest play wear and a DEAD ON 58/59 carve neck that exactly matches my 58 ES175 and 59 ES225.
Yours looks like it's in a shop, so I always figure there's at LEAST 15% off the asking price.
Tell the guy to GIVE it you for free.
When he says, "GIVE it to you?"
Say, "We're haggling... I'm starting low."
