Default Rogers Mardi Gras... help

So, I have the opportunity to buy a Rogers Mardi Gras finish for a good price.
The issue is, it has an ugly pearl mount and other modifications... what do y'all think? Is it worth the cost of restortation or a lost cause?

I personally would pick it up. That finish is really tough to come by, however it would also depend upon how much the seller is asking and what's included. You can restore small holes without too much issue, but if your looking for a museum or collectors piece than maybe not. Any additional info would help.

Walopus carries Mardi Gras wrap, and as far as I know, they are the only company that does. Those holes can be repaired and recovered so they look at least acceptable.

If you decide you don't want that set, by all means, give me the seller's phone number!
