Any thoughts on this one (re-neck)? Presumably a full refin (if it is what it purports to be), as the top is nowhere near a tangerine-burst and the back looks faded but shows the same colour underneath the truss rod cover, where one would expect the red to be unfaded; the control cavity looks remarkably clean, with no evidence of any previous red finish/stain. Also, the tooling mark/lines (?) about half-way up the control cavity look unusual.

It looks like this one is still up on Reverb. I'm curious what you mean by unfaded under the truss rod cover though?

I meant the control cavity cover - thanks for pointing this out!

The effect I meant can be seen quite well on e.g. on post #686.

ATB in the UK have two 1960’s in at the moment. I like the first one I linked, but seems pretty heavy.

Hi guys, what do you guys think about the pricing on this 58 at Carters? Refin, replaced tuners, bridge and tail piece. Waiting on info on the m69s. Original electronics all the way around

For sure.

What do you think the number on this one is, 80 to 100?
Oh, I couldn't really say. For someone wanting this kind of thing, the price tag might be right. For me, with an all refinish and no original serial #, much less.

Gotcha, yeah makes sense. I'm trying to kind of educate myself on these values because you hear stuff all over the map.

IMO, if it was a body only refin & still had its original ser.no, the 150K would seem more in the right ballpark.. YMMV.

Appreciate the input, that seems pretty reasonable to me. I did reach out to Carters to see if they had any info on whether it was the original owner and if there was any paperwork or chain of custody information to be had so will see where that leads.
