    I posted this on the Pit too biut thought I'd fish here. Here goes...

    Hey Guys,

    I saw one of these in a pawn shop today that needed a little work. I have seen them on the net here and there and I think(?) they were made in the early 80's? It plays nicely but is a little beat. The tuners are corroding, the Badass is corroding, and the input jack needs to be replaced. I don't think one of the coil tap switches was working either. On the plus side, the neck was in great condition, frets were very nice and the body, cosmetically, was in fair to good condition. It weighed a TON but the Alembic PU's had a very nice tone. Anyone know what these things are worth, roughly? The shop had a starting price of a grand and have since knocked it down to $499. I was thinking of offering them $250 to see if they'd bite because it needs some work. Any input anyone? I don't know what my question is. Say anything ya want.

    Thx,

    Mike
