Opinions on 02 Destroyer DT-420 Reissue prices

Hey guys I have been offered one of these in minty condition, with case and candy. I am not up on Destroyer models and values, I do see this was a somewhat limited 02 Reissue and MIJ. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Opinions on 02 Destroyer DT-420 Reissue prices

The only Destroyer I know of that came out in 2002, was the DTX120CA. It's not really a Destroyer, but rather--a mikro version. It also wasn't MIJ.




Are you sure it's a 2002?
Are there any pics you can post for us to help you sort this out?

If it's anything like my DT-420, then I highly recommend it.....depending on the price/

Re: Opinions on 02 Destroyer DT-420 Reissue prices

yeah it took me a while to find info on it...but this was a limited release that didnt make it to the catalogs, its not the micro.

Here is a link to where I found the info and this one looks exactly like the one in the photos there. The serial on it is F02xxxxx.

That's a DT-420--the same model and color I have! But, I put red DiMarzios in mine along with locking tuners



GREAT guitar! How much is the seller asking?


EDIT---also, if it's certainly a 2002, then it's a DT-420 which is a reissue of the 95/96 DT-400.

Re: Opinions on 02 Destroyer DT-420 Reissue prices

If 375 is a deal, what is an average value on one?

Re: Opinions on 02 Destroyer DT-420 Reissue prices

In good condition, OHSC and candy--anywhere between $500-650.00 is about average. Could go even higher to a collector or someone who's been after that model and color for awhile. Some people will pay that extra few slices of bacon just to make sure they get it.
While I've obtained most of my collection by plain good scores, sweetheart deals and trades--there were a few that I went a little high on just to get them.
