Bruno - Royal Artist Electric

We recently found one of these 6 string, hollow electric guitars in our attic. Missiong strings and knobs but other than that it looks great. What is some thing like this worth?

Thanks

Re: royal artist guitar

I have one too. I got it in 1969. I need to clean it up and see if it still works. It's been packed away a long time. I've been using a strat lately.

Re: royal artist guitar

I have one that I bought from a friend of mine in 1972. It came with a small box amp for $50.00. I have literally worn the frets off this guitar and it has at least four paint jobs. It is pretty much solid black right now. I swapped out the pickups for some humbucking pickups and never looked back. I am wanting to get the frets replaced on it and keep on Rocking. I coupled it with a Fender pro Reverb amp with Celestion speakers. I get such amazing tonal qualities out of it. I also have an Ibanez Solid body which is very nice, But that Royal Artist is my baby.

I have one as well, but made in Korea. It is a violin hollow body 6 string. I paid $150 for it back in 1969. I did put now strings on it recently but the electronics don't seem to work.
