Found a UV7BK used - How much should I be paying?....

I just found a UV7BK tonight used. Don't know the exact year but it has all the green inlays and pickups. Here's the problem......There asking 80,000 Yen (about 800.00) but here's whats wrong with this baby:

1.) Heavily Pitted Trem
2.) Neck joint dirty and faded (cannot see the first # of
* * the serial thats why I can't figure out the year)
3.) Lots of scratches on body and headstock.
4.) Found two nice nicks one on the body and one on
* * the headstock all the way down to the wood.
5.) There's a sticky residue all over the pickguard as if
* * someone had put stickers all over it but never
* * cleaned it off
6.) Posts on the pickups all have a coat of rust on them
7.) Oh and the green knobs have been replaced with
* * *black cause I know it's not a 97!

I was thinking of offering $400.00 to $500.00? Please let me know if I am wrong or just your thoughts in general. Oh on the grading guide here at Jemsite I'd give it a VG 70%. Thanks........................

In the US it would still be $700 or slightly more cased, unless you found it in a pawn shop.

They aren't too big on cases over there. Still $650 or more.

that is a steal at $500. In the USA i can see a fool on ebay bidding $750-800 easily if you put the word KORN in the auction description ...glen

Yeah Rich I saw the one you had listed on your site, and from the description it sounds like it's in alot better shape than the on I found. Thats why I was thinking of offering the $500.00. I guess I need to go grab a snapshot and post it for you. Later........
