Gibson Non-reverse Firebird from 1965

Even though it's obviously been highly "customised", has suffered a neck break and has been re-sprayed a rather vibrant shade of red, I find myself quite attracted to this Gibson Firebird from 1965 with non-reverse body styling. The seller is including the original components so the buyer who has a mind to do so could restore it to its former glory. Personally, I'd leave it as it is. It's a guitar that looks like it has a lot of history and stories to tell, and surely is more genuine than any of the plethora of ersatz "relic" guitars that are currently the popular fashion.
