Radius 442 R TS

Well just got back from a pawn shop, found a weird guitar a 1991 MIJ Radius 442R. Never had a radius but knew it was something, body is in perfect condition, SD pup in the bridge, missing rear cover, lot of Mojo on the fretboard but neck looks great overall. Its the transparent sunburst color. With a Jackson HSC (fits perfect though) and the trem bar. Gonna go clean her up now! I know these were only made one year, are they really nice guitars?? What should I have paid?!?!?! I hope i dident get ripped off...... Ill get pics later! gonna clean/play


Looks like the sunburst on this page

Well, if you don't tell us what you paid, how can we give you a good assessment? Post pics of the before and after.

First, you need to edit your post and put the pics below each other and not side by side.

Second, you got a very good deal on a nice guitar.

Re: Radius 442 R TS

That was def. a steal then. The only things I would do that that guitar would be to add a set of gotoh locking tuners, a Fender gold lace sensor in the neck and a dimarzio YJM in the middle.
