Looking at one in decent shape, needs a set up, tweeking etc, but no big issues- what's a good price range?
I just got a '24 Ajr for $1500.00 that plays ands sounds just great, but has repaired cracks and some slight separations, a new bridge and no pickguard. #I think 2K is closer to normal for one in better shape. #That or I got robbed #Nah, I did fine, this mando is a great one regardless of price and ugliness.
I see them going from $1200-$1800 bucks. A real nice one sold recently on ebay for $1299. it was real clean I think the snakehead Ajr's are a good buy, all the improvements and tone, without the high price tag of binding and inlay
Gruhn has one listed at $2000. I think Greg Boyd has/had one at $1900 with a refinish.
12th Fret has one for $1300 American, and Buffalo Bros. has one for $1250. Tempting, to be sure.
Arches F4 / Newson F5
Crump B1 / Old Wave GOM
These dont have truss rods do they?
How about "Gibson" on the headstock?
The ones I have seen have Gibson silkscreened on the peghead. #1200-1500 seems to be a good price. #Check with Charles Johnson's site he has a few.
Yeah, Keep calling me Hillbilly........
Willie's American Guitars in St. Paul, MN has a 1923 jr. listed for $1095. From the picture it looks like it's seen some use.
No connection with the store on my part.
My '24 does not have a truss rod, at least not an adjustable rod, I think there may be a stiffening rod in the neck. Also no logo on the headstock.
