    No go on ebay as of yet. Didn't know about the other ones though, thanks.

    I hope you have a big wad of cash. They do show up on eBay aplenty, but the nice ones do come at a price.

    My daughter has had some luck finding Magnums via eBay and Craigslist (she collects them); if you're patient you can usually get them for around $500. Less than the cost of some new Fenders. :D They are solid, good sounding instruments.

    They do come up, occasionally cheaper, but almost exclusively that pertains to the less-collectible 3+4s. The first and second series command a greater dollar value, it seems. WHich sucks because I really want one!

    I know what you mean-there's a 3 (or is it a 4) in our classifieds right now.
    But my experience is the 1's and 2's I've seen generally run in the $700 range +/-.
    I'm sure there are good deals to be found occasionally, but I havent come across one yet.

    I know. I was looking at one ebay that the guy is asking $1200 for. Is that just insane? You guys have any idea of what's fair for one of these, in say perfect condition?
