Looks like this one was on craig's earlier this year (per a forum post). Not sure if it's the same owner or an unhappy customer.

I'm interested in it but am not sure if the $400 range is good for the bolt-on.

While we're at it, can someone clarify? - do the stereo corsair's literally have 2 outputs?

Offer 350 or walk. These usually get taken off ebay since your not allowed to sell non authorized copies

historically the bolt necks have been in the 300-500 range, and the thru necks, 500-1000 range depending on condition and finish. The Cherry bursts seem to go higher...

Yes the stereo Corsair's have 2 output jacks.

As a Mccartney fanatic, I love those Rics - reminds me of "walrus" and i'd love to play "silly little love songs" on one...

but i'm not dying to have it. I might throw out a max offer of $300 and see what happens. Thanks!

from some quick browsing, this is kind of what i gathered. I'd pay more for the burst.

He's willing to take $400 min apparently, but I think he's a little off on the price range. Looks like maybe a mint burst with original case MIGHT get close to $800.

I think this particular one, on CL, should be more around 250. Thanks for the info.

Remember that being on CL, if its local, you can try it out and there is no shipping. I think that is worth something when compared to e-bay. $400 is a fair price if not a bargain.
