Bought it for $100 in 1970 from a flatmate who was selling it on behalf of a friend. It had been stored under his bed for several years where the neck became drastically warped. His solution was to straighten the neck by cutting a wedge from neck joint and screwing the neck to the body. It wasn't very successful. Cost $30 to have it fixed. A bargain.
