I've got this beatiful Rainbow-I guitar and am not too sure how much it is worth.

Any rough ideas guys?

Thanks

I'd very happily pay at least $20 for one... does that help?

It is a beautiful guitar though. Just wondering if the pickups and knobs are original. That hardshell case looks comfy too.

Rainbow-I valuation 09
from a 1981 catalog scan

yours appears to be an early version (old Logo, plain tailpiece), is there a serial number somewhere?
all the pics i see have covered pickups, so maybe check to see what pickup is really on yours.

for the benefit of anyone interested in your guitar, where are you located and are you willing to ship everywhere,anywhere?

Cheers! From my own research it is a 1981 model. The serial number is 1112326. I am located in Upminster, Essex and would be happy to ship within the UK at cost price which is approx £25.

If anyone wishes to bid from outside the UK I could collect and send on.

Been in touch with the seller and he's OK with that, of course.

The guitar is a stones throw from me so not a problem.

I'd have it myself but I have 4 rainbows Smile
