Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Holy Moley!! It's a gorgeous guitar but that price??

Would you even be able to get that for a real '58 325?

The serial number also worries me.

Looks like there was a mix up with the first digit of the serial number. In a reply from the owner he noted that it is a '3' at the start.

To date, this is the only known example of a factory 325 from the period between '58 and '64.
