Question regarding the buy back system

With the new buy back system based on another members post about selling ships I had this hypothetical question. Assuming you had a account locked ships could you melt it and then buy it back with cash and have it be unlocked?

Yes…and I have bought back ships and sold them so they were giftable.

Thanks for the answer. And theyes were account bound before Joshua

Yes they were as they were gifted to me after I bought them on the grey market.
