In my opinion, it does not look like an easy seller, the issues taken into consideration.
Apart from Bigsby holes, a repaired neck pickup / broken neck pickup ring, and switch tip + jack plate not original :

"The original pickguard, tuners and knobs were retrieved in a box."

Does that mean it comes with the sale? Yes or no? Why not write that in plain english?
And was the binding repaired or fully replaced?
I don't like it when you have to ask questions about mystics things, they should have been clarified in the listing.

Can only assume English is not their native language as it’s for sale in Italy, so perhaps some details lost in translation so to speak.

However for something of this price and calibre with those issues, it would have been prudent on their part for them to get their add proof read by someone qualified in such listings.

Played this one, its a great LP with the aforementioned issues, some bigsby holes, binding reglued, neck ring not original.
The price on Reverb is not a selling price as you know.
I decided to look for something cleaner but its a great deal for someone

Those answers are very easily obtained if one is interested. Francesco is not hard to find.

I know, but if one is just interested in the current price range of bursts, the absence of important info (which should have been stated in the listing IMO) makes it harder to get a grasp of prices without having to disturb the seller unnecessary.
