Lots of replaced hardware.... or is it correct for this model? Feels like a seller who doesn't know what they have.....or do know and are pulling something???

Looks suspiciously like the RG model at this website. scratch

There were Korean models with Dan Armstrong pickups (even a couple of Dan Armstrong signature guitars), and there were models with Kahlers from the factory. Might be more original than you think.

The tip of the headstock is cut off, or broken off.

So... Kahler with stringlock, 22 fret maple neck, Gotoh tuners on reverse headstock (logo only), S/S/HB,

What is it??... a Corsair Custom? The headstock shape is incorrect for a Dan Armstrong. :?: :?: :?:

Looks exactly like a 1989 Spectrum GT WE6411BK to me:

$495? Good luck with that. Looks more like a $125'er to me

Yeah, I did abit of Q&A with him before he found out what it really was and it was initially a $375 or BO listing. Tried to get him warm to the idea that even that was entirely TOO optimistic, but even then he was having none of it.

Well, it's on its 2nd trip round e(vil)bay now. Perhaps he will wise up before it attains Monark status. Razz
