Opinions on Values- Maxxas MX-3 and a 540R Radius

Hi All,
I have 2 guitars I bought back in the late 80's, early 90's here in NH and I was wondering current values
First is a MINT MX-3 in the red color. Has the tremelo that is not the edge with a reproduction bar since I never had the original one. No hard case either unfornunately.
Next is an Ibanex 540R Radius in Pearl white, Hard case, I put a Steve Vai pickup in it at the time

Have the original pickup for it too.
Any ideas on values?

Thanks

The 540r if it was in great condition I would pay personally between $450-600. People pay more if it is H-H as then they think they are joe satriani like.

I think the Maxxas could get you 1500 or more. I think they're rather elusive.

I don't think the Maxxas's, even tho rare, are really sought after. I got my blue MX-2 for about $700 on the 'bay last year. The MX-3 I sold to someone here I think I got 900-1000 and had bought it for about 700. Just didn't like that wacky bridge.

My MX-2

A white Maxxas (MX-2 I believe) just went for something like $1400 on eBay. It had some sort of graphic on it but it wasn't completely mint.

Thanks, I listed it and I needed 10 posts I guess to list photos thats why there are none. I figured if I wasnt using it someone that can appreciate it might and I can invest in some other current hobby

The MX-3 has the other bridge on it though, not the edge one I think that is

The MX-3 has the bevel bridge, locking tuners and is a semi hollowbody. My MX-2 is all solid and has the original Edge bridge and a doohickey called a "back stop" which I never did find out what it does but Ibby got sued over it, I believe.

The Back Stop is an adjustable tremsetter. Steve Vai has one in FLO.

Yeah, I didn't dig it. Not to mention the MX-3 had the most difficult to use locking tuners ever. I used mine hardtail for the most part until I decided to part with it. Love my MX-2 tho. Will probably survive the next reaping of guitars for me.
