    Music123 has them on special right now for $200 delivered... a GREAT buy. Solid top....and believe it or not, laminated back and sides JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL SELMERS....

    Now, you'll have to be prepared to spend a chunk of change to get it set up "right".....ie, have a setup man dress the frets, and RAISE the action. I suppose you could get by with using cut down popsicle sticks( the tradtional gypsy method for raising action)....I glued maple shims to the bottom of mine, dyed em black, and then carved out a bunch of extra lumber on my table router.

    THIS IS A BASIC guitar, but the tone is "right" if not a bit brash sounding. Go for it.....
