Have a chance to buy a pair of 1 owner near mint 2C's for $250. They come with box's and sound anchors. Told there is a rattling from the acoustic coupler and not sure what I may be getting into. If it is the acoustic coupler any ideas on repair cost etc? Considering the potential problem is $250 a good price?

Many of them come loose at the SPIDER connecting to the frame.. every rattle I have heard from them has been THAT! Repair that and its as good as new.. Prepare for 300 staples to get the cloth off.. Use good cleaner and glue and they usually fire right back up
