Cost of Repairs vs. Value of Instrument

A slight correction. You will *ASK* $12,000 - $15,000 for it. You may even
find a sucker^H^H^H^H^H^H buyer for it. On the other hand, most knowledgeable
collectors wouldn't want to spend more than $2,250, since they can get one
almost as good for that price, so it's going to be a hard sell.
