It'll probably add a couple of thousand dollars value to someone's guitar, though. I agree, it is ridiculous.gerald guerrero said:

Should be in the dictionary as an example of ridiculous
Oh yeah, and that's my question at the bottom. Maybe he's right and left handed guitars are rarer than unicorns? Hahaha.
Not to mention the reason it was dumped on the first place is because it wasnt getting good contact cause it was all oxidized. So, being that the metal parts of the switch are riveted onto a thin wafer board, it would be tantamount to microsurgery to take the thing apart and dose it with Hydrochloric acid to remove the oxidation, and then to work with the worn out springs and hope the metal fatigue isnt over the edge to somehow work it back into tolerance, and then hope you dont split the wafer board riveting back together, and , ummm, by the way, where are you going to find origianl new springs and rivets fro '63?. Man, put a new switch in the guitar and stick the original, if it indeed IS original, into the Case compartment .Take the three hundred bills and donate it to world hunger. Sheesh, how neurotic can you get before youve become completely anal?Coustfan'01 said:Am I wrong , or there's no serial or anything on parts like pots , switches , pickguard that proves it's authenticity ? 200+ for a switch is ridiculous , but I at least hope it's authentic ...
Its amazing what people would do for somethings. Or in this case, how much they will spend on a piece of equipment.gerald guerrero said:

I wonder how much money you could make selling a 50's-60's fender for parts??
Pots have dates written on them. They are writtem like 304434. 304 is the manufacturer, 4 is the fourth digit of the year and 34 is the week. Problem is a '4' could mean 1964 or 1974....Coustfan'01 said:Am I wrong , or there's no serial or anything on parts like pots , switches , pickguard that proves it's authenticity ? 200+ for a switch is ridiculous , but I at least hope it's authentic ...
