Ive seen a Bronco (white, But yellowed with age) in a cash converters in Bristol. Not too sure of the date as I'm useless with serial numbers. The serial number is on the neck bolt plate and not on the headstock. I'm under the impression that means its before late 70s? It doesn't have original pick-up, but what appears to be a Seymour Duncan hot rail in it. The guitars in pretty good shape, apart from some minor scratches and belt marks. They're asking for 549. I didn't get a picture as I was in a rush. Really could do with some advice on this as I feel its a bit steep. The only trouble is they won't budge on price and have had other interest in it.

Thanks guys!

Way too much. Right now there are two music masters in the classifieds that are half the price of that one.

Even still, that is a lot of money for that guitar.

Headstock serial numbers started in 1976.

I'm going to say at UK rates that is probably a tiny bit high but you will be hard pressed to find one for much less either. If you have the money I'd try and get them down to 500 but I'd go for it, they look amazing.

My sentiments as well. The tremolo can cost a small fortune by it's self.
