1988-91 USA saber

Does anyone have any idea what they are worth, a guy has one locally in jade blue. He want 500 for it. I havent went to look at it yet, but is it worth a look?

If all is in decent shape it is worth it. Shoot him an offer for 400 and see if he bites.

Oh yea and some of those came with a Ibanez Backstop installed which can sell for 125+. If it has that then it is worth it even more

It's not worth anything, dude!!!
Just pass me the contacts and I'll break the guy's nose.

Re: 1988-91 USA saber

I just got an 88 Saber 540SHH and am very pleased with it. The pickups are eventually going to be swapped, but the neck.....oh MAN, the neck. Sweeeet!

The only thing I'd like better about it is an AANJ instead of the square heel neck joint. But that's very minor nitpicking.

Please don't tell me you saw it in a pawn shop in Charlotte.
