If that's a white one, it would be mine :-)

It's been seen on here before. I posted plenty of pics when I picked it up 4ish? years ago. It really is a good one! Not looking for offers, ebay does it's job in that things go for what they're worth but I would help it get to its new home if you're between west yorks and north notts.

Life circumstances forcing it to move on :-( will be sorry to see it go

Is that an MIJ model? Just curious as to the serial, and also in the market for a 1A at the right price, after having mine brutally robbed.

Edit, i'm going blind i thought it was an 8 serial. Itis an MIJ though?

Yes, the serial indicates April 06 and yes it's MIJ. I even removed a pickup at the behest of other forum members when I picked it up. Mmk45's.

An unbelievable bargain if it ends at £99. If it does though, I'd be disappointed. Paid a lot more than that when I bought it and never regretted a penny of it

Of course that should read April 86!

She's a beaut. The way the white ages to a soft cream just adds doesn't it. I'm in on the bidding, but I'll be surprised if my budget extends to what that guitar is worth.

The  cream does add character. Sorry about your loss though. Was that also a white one? No idea what it will end up at but haven't seen a white one offered in a long time. Best of luck anyway!

It was an 84 ash/maple model, run of the mill compared to yours i think.

Gutted for both of us, I spent £50 on a lappy yesterday morning of my father (worth £200 so i got a bargain) so i couldn't bid any higher.  Hope it's gone to one of us guys. Kinda reminded me of an angel in comparison to the devil  of a jet. Someone got a bargain there.

Agree, a bargain. Thought it might have gone a little higher given the level of interest and condition (had over 50 watchers). From memory I paid £180 for it which was certainly top money at the time but things are only worth what someone is willing to pay. Guess the market is what it is. Don't give up your search though. There's always another, possibly with your name on it

Right o, when you list on EvilBay you gotta think about your ending times!   In the States here, they say that the best ending times for auctions are Tuesday or Thursday nights between 7-10pm.  Get the most money that way.

Absolutely!

I had been watching this but was at work when the auction ended.

Bargain for whoever bought it, I think it could have gone higher - perhaps a fair bit higher - with different timing.

Lucky you, it isn't actually the active circuit that interests me , it's the phase shift. Biding my time, theres an early cased one up at the moment but that's going to be way over my limits. Biding my time for the right one.  Still, getting some nice sounds from my fender marauder and it's going in for surgery this week. Pots,cap and socket.

There was a really nice IIA up on ebay recently in white with the heelless neck. It looked great but went well above my budget
