    Hey! I saw a Status in the pawn shop today. This is the first time I've seen a REAL Status in a pawn shop but I've seen tons of fakes. This was definitely the real deal.

    Anyway...it's a S2 classic bolt on w/ head and I'm not sure what the top wood was but it had some flame up around the horns and some knots and a little curliness to it. It was definitely not walnut.

    So, how much do these go for new and used? This one was $899.00 on the price tag (which as always is usually hugely negotiable at a pawn shop). That seems a little high to me, even for a tag price. Seemed like a nice bass but I didn't plug it in.

    S2...is that a 2-pickup model? If so, I think you can sometimes find them for around $1,500, new. $899 used seems reasonable...very much so.
