Man I wish they would make a MOP Pearl Arched Logo available for the classic headstocks they are just perfect. Nice score!

What's the value of this guitar in good condition? What should I consider paying for a used one without a case?

How would describe the sound? I'm looking for a nice crunch sound.

Thanks

I think I paid 550, + ship, I've seen them go for a little less - The entire guitar is Maple, Maple guitars are unmatched even by Koa I am convinced now as I now own more Maple Carvins than Koa ones, So maybe I need to change my name to Mapleboy?? The pickups are sweet, the problem surely is not the sound it's the playability if you are like me, heavy handed, if you don't solo it may be ok, but the frets are so low when I try to bend my fingers rub the fretbd so it make it hard for me to solo, which is hard enough for me anyway lol...
