This looks lovely but a hefty bin price.

Would be just smashing if a seller just once a blue moon would correctly quote the 1 in 96 "statistic" that has perpetuated into the routine selling point we have all become accustomed to by now.

Nary a too noticeable blemish on her though... to my eyes at least.

Who says Pearl White is more desirable than the Caspian Blue?

He does apparently.

No trem arm, non original knob, chip on tip of headstock.
So he says.

B*llocks! I gave up bidding early, assuming the reserve was going to be close to the 'Buy it Now' price... Rolling Eyes

No one. But that's pretty cheap.

..so there I was, just flicking through ebay as one does, when I saw this X390 with a huge BIN price and 15 minutes to go.
I stuck in a bid, just on the off chance, and low and behold it cleared the reserve price....so now its mine Very Happy

Apart from a small chip on the tip of the pointy head and a missing knob it looks like a minter and sounds really, really good.
To be honest, I've never been really drawn to the pointy ones, but now having held it and played it I have been well and truly converted Thumb Up ...it is a beautiful thing and I'm pretty chuffed with it to say the least.

I will get some photos up as soon as possible!

so here are the initial pictures, not even touched it yet....and not sure I will be able to find anything much that needs doing other than touch up the tip and source a new knob....

case a bit tatty outside but good condition inside, even had whammies, allen keys and a full set of non-original knobs in the compartment







...and the only dink on it!!!! Very Happy

Drooling here!
Pearl White nail varnish from Asda or Claires accessories. Worked beautifully for my sunn Mustang in a very similar colour.

Looks in excellent condition.

Also thought the reserve would have been higher with that BIN price.
So just ignored it.

Thanks for the tip about the nail varnish Sarge, much appreciated Smile

Just need to get a replacement knob now.....did I read a thread about someone here that reproduced them?...or was it the brass ones only he had available?.. scratch

Just looking at the B and E string spacing on the bridge, looks slightly out....do I just loosen the string spacing lockdown on the saddle and slide it across or do I have to loosen the string lock on the head first?
Never had a kahler bridge before and I'm very impressed with its design, seems to do everything.Early days yet but I much prefer it to the BMD I got recently with my Spectrum II.....that thing took me an age to set up and even now its still not right.

Thanks for all your assistance gents, its appreciated Very Happy

Note to Barry: Perhaps a static link to that Kahler instruction page in the Fixit section if the info site would be in order.

It makes those scans of my manual I attempted to get to you look downright cheesy.

That pearl sure is pearly, great score. Doesn't appear too yellowed at all!
