"Sigh". Hello Mandy. Your friend needs to get hold of the manufacturer and model name. The year might help. Go to ebay, and pump this info into "search". Click on "title and description" if necessary. Then click on "completed listings only". That'll give you a rough figure to work with.

If you draw a blank, do come back here and post the same info. "SB" can help or maybe even I can. The unusual, strange, or just plain daft have passed my eyeballs over the years :)

thanx he said it's called an epiphone invader not sure of the year

Epiphone manufacture low to mid-range instruments and on a good day, in pristine condition you could expect around £180/$340ish for the Invader.

LIke everything, something is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it.

Apols for the delay, I have browser problems and 'reply to a topic' kicks me off a lot.

Anyhoo, I did the above and checked the completed eBay sales on the guitar. Only one recently on FleebUK, selling for £78. That did strike me as low, but the recent Korean Epis sell low brand new. The one pickup Les Paul types are not tremendously popular, and this bolt-on neck job (the p'ups also sound nothing like a Gibson) doesn't compare favourably to other budget-end LPs.

Sorry if this info disappoints.

no that's ok thanx for the help

You're v welcome. Do remember that I only saw one completed listing. Don't take the £78 as gospel on that sample size. I have seen the same thing (eg, an amp I'm after) sell between £50 and £199 on Fleeb. Depends on the skill of the seller (I've always been happy with the price I get :P )

Good luck if you do sell
