Think it’s a 78, love it but cannae afford right now. What would be a fair price considering that awful bridge?

That bridge looks like a Kahler. Even though it looks terrible on that body, they're quality...you could pull it and sell it for ~$150. Also looks like it had a bar for string break angle installed on the headstock at some point, poorly done at that...could maybe use that to talk the price down.

Won't lie although I fucking hated seeing it on there. It played and sounded great.

Pretty much pristine for a 40 year old guitar too.

They want £500 but am I fuck paying that.

That's a fixed Kahler, I doubt you could sell it for that much.

If it was a moving Kahler 500 quid would be worth it for that guitar (although replacing it is idiotic as it's routed under).

(actually I'm not sure it's a fixed Kahler, maybe someone else can chime in)

It looks like a trem unit, you can tell the difference from the trem arm hole located between the B and E strings.

"Excellent Condition

I'm thinking to offer £300/350 for it.

Samick built, 1986-88 with that hiddeous logo. 1989 ones have the streamlined epi logo without the gibson part. 1990-> they start coming from several korean and later chinese factories. The old samick ones are kinda charming, a handmade feel to them compared to new quingdao ones, which are nicely built too. These old ones have a service cavity for the electronics under the bridge pickup. Hardware is non-standard, which makes bridge and tailpiece swapping difficult. That said, nothing wrong with the stock ones. Great tuners, beautiful woods. Pickups are not gibsonesque at all, which is why people tend to swap them i think. They do make outstanding Neil Young - style distorted sounds with a 5e3 or champ, though. No hifi to ruin your screams you know. I bought a '87 about ten years ago, my first non-musicmaster family guitar. Played it a lot, but gonna sell it soon, can't stand the logo and play my two mm's nowadays more anyway. FUN FACT mine has a poster with the 1987 Epiphone lineup that it came with when someone got it new.

/ot

Cool musicmaster, but must be remembered that as long as refinished original 60s - early 70s ones can be had for €500, one great thing about these modded ones has to be their competitive price. Figures beginning with a 3 sound fine if the guitar does too.

Has the musicmaster had a respray, I've not seen one that colour?
I don't think the trem looks that bad.

Those Sheratons play really nice, I had one for a few years. I did swap the pups for SD 59's and added a bigsby. Unfortunately i find demos a bit unwieldy standing up playing live so sold it on.

That Musicmaster is easily worth £500, Rob.

Modified models were selling for that amount ten years ago in the UK.

I had a 76 and a 78, both brilliant necks.

I can't read the writing on the trem, is it Kahler? There were some poor copies around for a short period, Hohner did one. Aside that Washburn made the Wonderbar which was similar and now highly sought after. Schaller made some fine tuning fixed bridges as well.
If it's Kahler or Schaller they're quality.

I'll have another butchers in a couple days. I think it said Peavey on it but not 100%

But we do know whoever put it on there is a cunt.

Refinished. Modified. Forget the year it was made. It has no real vintage value left in it. It's an old, well-made student guitar. with one neck pickup...Maybe 300 Quid?
