    Why are refrets coming up so much these days?

    I've not heard this. At least not in the collector circles I move in. Refrets are par for the course along with neck resets on acoustic guitars. All I can think is that if the guitar has pristine original frets the rest of the guitar will likely be pretty mint therefore more desirable?

    Little know in USA but much beloved in Australia, UK, New Zealand. An influential voice of 60s folk. One of my favourites :(

    Guitar that might be Buddy Holly's 1954 Strat

    The letter from Bill Carson would have helped with the asking price - the same catalogue has original preCBS strats in the $3500- 5000 range.

    Hilarious! That strat was last seen for sale in the Gruhn vintage catalogue, August 95. Wasn't even a legit '68! 😆

    Dickie Phillips "over-the-top" on a Strat.

    Seems like there's at least one too many banjos in that shot?
