    So, after many years away from electric playing, I’m looking at a 2005 (Corona plant) nitro sunburst finish with Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups. Refret w larger fret wire less than 5 years ago. I haven’t played it yet; about an hour away.

    How does a $950 price tag fair for one of these? I’m not looking to flip, but there’s a chance my interest may wane quickly (strictly acoustic player for the last 12 years) and don’t want to lose money on it either.

    Good price. The big frets might be a turn off for someone down the line if they're hunting an AVRI, but you might also find someone who can only get along with a 7.25 if it has big frets.
