$120 in extra electronics for a bog-standard JB and 59... that I would immediately replace because I've had 20 other guitars with JB/59 combos. I'm sure I'm nitpicking but the first thing I'd do when I got this is put back in a pair of original Schallers and start hunting for the correct gold gotoh tuners. If anything it costs me more to find that stuff than any value I'd get from reselling the two humbuckers already in it

Not that there is anything wrong with the JB/59 combo of course. Just saying that's not a value-add to me

$1200 to take it? Welp. I'm out. I know prices are up but adding tax and shipping, parts restoration... is this a $1500+ guitar all said and done? I don't think so personally but I'm positive someone will snag it and be very happy with it

there's that angle, too, lol.

like they say, it's worth what someone is willing to pay for it. all things considered, in my opinion, that's a decent price for that guitar, or any Imperial in decent shape these days.

I bought my first Imp years ago off the old forum 'Klassifieds'. Maple bodied, oiled neck. I paid $550 for it. sold it due to the weight, but it played and sounded great. those days are obviously gone.

Obviously, the prices have gone up, but a 1982ish beak in a good shape for $1,200 :hit

I expect there might be some last-minute sniper action. I bet some folks are laying low so as not to start driving up the price. I could be wrong. At that price, one of our chop shop friends could make money parting it out, so I guess we'll see what happens.

Just saw it sold for $1200 so looks like he got his goal price!

It's a beautiful guitar I'm sure whoever got it will be super happy with it. I hope it was someone here as well. I set my alarm to check it and totally missed it, but I have to say if it had sit at $1000 with no bids close to the end I probably would've thrown my hat in. My original offer was $950
