Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

To start it's an MKR, yes these come up for sale but not like mine.

Totally unmarked and totally unplayed since 1990.

Original case, straps and all candy and totally unmarked, no pitting to any chrome. Still original strings!

It does have a lovely swirl as well unlike most MKR's!


Excuse the poor photo it was taken about 10 or more years ago..!



Any ideas?

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

I'd say maybe 1000 bucks, but I can cut ya a deal and give you 2000 for it right now!!!!

But seriously, thing's awesome man!

There's people on here who know way more about the market than I do, and I'm sure could give you a proper estimate. That being said, I'd guess you could probably get around 4k for it, perhaps more because you have a nice collector package. Maybe you could list it high/OBO somewhere and see what people offer for it.

Would love to see more pics also if you get the chance!

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

I will get some more pictures.
I'd definitely not let it go for 4K (I'm assuming you meant dollars? I'm from the UK)

The cheapest one I can see at the moment is nearly that and is very played without any of the original stuff.

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

You should have taken a new picture of the face because the decade old shot is not cutting it, but from that shot it's quite mediocre as most MKR's are. I'd say $4500 is about the end of the rainbow and that's because3 the case is worth $400 and it's a nice package, but the swirl is still what matters most.

Thanks Rich,

I've seen a lot of MKR's though and some aren't even pink, this is very vibrant in person.

It looks very close to my MKR in appearance - 4k was mine three years ago, including shipping and import duty.

Thanks Don,
What condition was yours in? With the dollar being so poor at the moment I think we'd struggle getting one here now!

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

Looks better than the decade old shot, but still pretty middle road for a swirl. There are some really good MKR's, and even then in the US the MKR will always play second fiddle. To the rest of the world where ATD's were never available you may find a buyer that feels different.

$3750

Add in shipping and taxes.... That's on the money.

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

I think 3500ish is about right, maybe more due to the rare goodies.

Re: Value my 1990 UV77MC... NOS

I really like it!!!
I don't like it when people get so caught up with things so trivial as the debate of adt vs mkr.
If you like it, you like it. both are great guitars and iam sure yours plays stunning.
I think sometimes we loose site of things and start worrying too much what other people think.
If The guitar speaks to you, then that's all that matters.
