    $80 20th Anniversary Silhouette!!! (Pawn Shop Find)

    I just came across what I'm pretty sure is a legit 20th Anniversary MM Silhouette for 80 bucks at a pawn shop! Sadly the case is missing, and it needs work, but I think somebody dropped the ball when pricing it! Just hit the floor today. Dirty, a little surface rust, few scuffs on the back, and warped neck (currently) but I think I got a slammin' deal!!! What say you?

    Kidding.

    It's visible, hard to photograph though.

    Is it warped, or just back bowed? Best way to picture a warped neck is from the headstock down towards the bridge.

    I guess back bowed would be more accurate.

    No Way !
    The Neck doesn't look warped to me. I'd just take it all apart and give it a thorough cleaning and polishing.
    If they sold it for 80 Bucks, i wonder how much the poor guy that sold it to the shop got.

    *holding a ruler up to the monitor* It doesn't look too bad. As long as the truss rod is functional...

    $30 or $40?

    Either stolen or someone really hit some very bad luck in a very big hurry.

    If the neck is just back bowed and not actually twisted, it can be fixed by a good luthier. If it's sent back to music man they may even replace it (you would pay for the new one of course but...).

    A Cash America pawn shop in Arlington TX. I've gotten good deals there before, and they tend to have some pretty good stuff, but it's usually priced accordingly.
