Re: What is this? whats it worth?

if it were me i would go for it whatever they are asking as that body is awesome!.

Put some white pickup's and Knobs, a gold Wilkinson VS100, gold tuners, that would be a dream guitar for me!

Re: What is this? whats it worth?

The 442 and 542 were a series of vintage inspired Radius guitars that were on sale briefly in the early 90s. The 442 is the model number, the R the body style and the CS the cherry sunburst finish.

As they're not that common it's hard to judge their actual value, but probably about the same as any other high end radius of similar condition.

Re: What is this? whats it worth?

i really like that cherry sunburst. i have one in trans red. and i love the guitar, i just dont get on with the maple board like i thought. i have been considering putting it up for trade for a 540 S. but i am in the middle of another project at the moment.....

Re: What is this? whats it worth?

the rarity alone should add to its value. 1993 and 1994 i believe were the years they were made. the 542R was SSS config. but i think that they were actually like blade pups...

Re: What is this? whats it worth?

the 442R was the only one with the maple board. also the only one with the alder body.
