70 Euros for a Busato ...

Currently on eBay in France, it's fresh from the attic, it's in need of some neck joint work, and it's, I think :-) , a Busato Petite Modele.

[ It looks like quite a few bidders have figured it out, too- I guess it'll eventually sell for four figures ]

I've no connection with the seller, the buyer, I'm not bidding, etc, etc, just nice to see our old guitars re-appear.

    Interesting "fixer upper"!

    The strings (nylon) are not under tension - might have structural problems

    "I guess it'll eventually sell for four figures "

    Sold for EUR 1,014 (1,110 USD) - maybe we'll see it again ;-)

    Here's a pic for forum posterity. -A-

    I considered it, but it has some serious issues around the neck heel joint.  Somebody is in for a potentially expensive rebuild.  Might be worth it even so.

    I was also very interested, but when the seller refused to send pictures of the neck block inside, because he couldn't see, red flags went off for me.

    I was too busy watching this nice early Di Mauro Special Chorus (my dream GJ guitar) : starting at 1 Euro, it soon got a bit too rich for me, selling for 1810 Euros [2015 USD]. Still some nice guitars turning up on eBay, though few bargains to be had. -A-

    That is very true. One year ago I got this beautiful restored Sonora from the 40´s on eBay for 451,00 Euros... I still can not believe it, it´s such a fantastic instrument! esq
