    Does anyone have any info/links on these instruments? Quality, sounds, prices on the used market? Thanks!

    i won one of those at a rock the vote rally in the 80's. a raffle thing. pretty cool. solid mahogany, set-neck, one of those hockey stick headstocks. HSH configuration 490's front and back, don't remember what was in the middle. 5way selector plus 3way coil tap switch / all pickups on. 9 different selections. had the thin wide compound radius neck, went from 12" to 16" i think. kahler tremelo. arctic white top to bottom. best as i can recollect anyhow.

    That sounds like what I saw in the pawn shop. Any idea what they are worth?

    i don't know if they were ever really "marketed". the retail at the time was about 1000 bucks. i've never seen one other than the one i sold. correction: traded for a '56 ford country sedan wagon.
