May need to depart with my beloved Necromancers' Castle

So, I bought the thing back when I was in high school, because it looked bad ass. Now, as I scramble to keep from being thrown out of my apartment, I began toying with the idea of selling it. I don't really use it any more, my playing style is completely different than it was back then. But darned if I don't love the thing.

Thing is, I have no way to gauge how much it is really worth. Information on that particular design is scarce, to say the least. However, I can say that its not in perfect condition, most notably there is a crack in the neck. It doesn't seem to have affected the intonation or playability in any way, but it is definitely... er... noticeable.

Any information that any of you could provide would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
-Bill

Well that's a very nice Custom Graphic model. I'm afraid the crack in the neck will detract from it's value considerably. Just my 2 cents worth. Depends on the severity of the neck crack and the potential for the situation to exacerbate. Pics would be a great help in this case. Cheers!!!

Yeah, I figured that might unfortunately be the case. Will take some photos when I get home tonight...

Yeah, I got to agree, especially a guitar like that. Hell, my first was w Memphis white/white pickguard Strat copy and I feel bad sometimes I got rid of it.

Re: May need to depart with my beloved Necromancers' Castle

My first guitar was a junky Crate Electra that i've since repainted a half dozen times and rewound the pickups myself...it means the world to me....

It's nothing as cool or special as a USA Custom Necromancer's Castle...don't sell it! You'll regret it sooner or later dude! (even though most of us would love to own one!)
