How much do I pay for a used Esp Kami?

These seem pretty hard to find recently,but what is the going price for a used Kami in good condition?
This question is mainly aimed at the UK guys,but if I found one on the bay I guess it would be from anywhere.
Also where is the best place to find a reasonably priced new one in the UK?
Thanks to anyone who can help

Re: How much do I pay for a used Esp Kami?

Here in Europe are pretty hard to find but in the U.S. market you could find it periodically very easily, as well other G.Lynch models like the "Skull and Snakes "and the "Celtic Serpent". Normally you could find them at the bay and with patience I will see various Kamikaze ones in very good condition without dings or damages run for around 1100-1300$, so it could be a great score considering that the pound is also stronger than euro.

Be patience and take a look at the bay.

Good luckˇˇ

Re: How much do I pay for a used Esp Kami?

I second what Javier said- they are on the bay all the time and $1100-$1500 US is about the going rate.
If you're looking for one of the odd color models, it will be tougher and they'll be a bit more expensive- unless you want one of the anniversary models which will set you back about 5-6K !!!!

One thing to keep in mind- i've heard that these guitars are h-e-a-v-y. I mean, literally. So if you've got a bad back, or don't like instruments that weigh a bit more than normal, consider asking any potential sellers for the weight before you buy.
Good luck!!

peace

Cool Re: How much do I pay for a used Esp Kami?

They are quite heavy because the body is made out of maple!
