i agree, which is why i bought my 77 4001. i paid 900 usd for mine. but, if you're buying it from someone else in sweden, the limited availability factor may also make a difference in price. 1500 usd is a little steep here, but i would check out other prices around there to make sure you're getting a fair deal and to make sure what average price for one of those is where you live.

Check that the neck is straight and not twisted or with a nasty bow, that the truss rods are good and work, and that the electronics (mostly the pickups) work.

I do have a couple shots of a 1974 4001, but I can't post them in here, nor do I have your e-mail.
