Good morning all, New on the forum, I will need info on this guitar which I just finished restoring. Here is what I have. - Strat type - 1 piece maple neck -3 single microphones - 5-way switch - Matsumoku explorer style head with "Epiphone" inlay -weight 3, 850 Kg -Number: 5121663 (December 85, 1663 ex). This model seems difficult (with this type of head)? Thank you for your information ! * If the value is minimal, it is not important, I find this guitar nifty, in any case I had a lot of work.☺️

Excuse my language, I use the translator my translation, I come from FRANCE

1985 S-300.  These weren't in any catalog that I am aware of and seem to have been a relatively small run prior to the full release of the S-300 in 1986. Not sure of the value. Probably around $200. Not sure though.

Thank you Robin Hood for your response!

This instrument has an excellent quality of vintage sound with its three singles.

Hello, i've played those when i used to take guitar lessons, they had one for the students, here in Mexico i've seen them for around $1500-$2000 pesos, which is like $75-$100 dollars

the neck is very comfortable to play

Bonjour, j'en ai joué quand je prenais des cours de guitare, ils en avaient un pour les étudiants, ici au Mexique je les ai vus pour environ 1500 $ - 2000 $ pesos, ce qui est comme 75 $ - 100 $ dollars

le cou est très confortable à jouer

 

En effet , trés bonne impression pour cet instrument ,( ici on a énormément de type LP ou SG ). Cette guitare S 300 avec cette poupée est introuvable !

Sorry for the confusion but i barely write French, took lessons for 2 years but that was  7 years ago i had no one to practice with, so i forgot most of it, i think im better off reading it than writing/speaking, hehe...yeah well, your guitar is not on the expensive side but i think its quite good, and i imagine you custom painted it (i have only seen them in black and red)

its a nice color!

Désolé pour la confusion mais j'écris à peine le français, j'ai pris des cours pendant 2 ans mais il y a 7 ans, je n'avais personne avec qui m'entraîner, alors j'ai oublié la plupart, je pense que je ferais mieux de le lire que d'écrire / parler, hehe. .. ouais bien, votre guitare n'est pas chère mais je pense que c'est assez bon, et j'imagine que vous l'avez peinte sur mesure (je ne les ai vues qu'en noir et rouge)

c'est une belle couleur!

 

Hello, i think i forgot the translation. I said that here in France we see a lot of LP or SG type, but not of this model S 300 with this head. I renovated it and I used a paint according to the internal traces (green, blue). I am now less of a musician and more of a collector. Thanks for your info.

In the USA these are going for $150 -$200. The resale price has gone up exponentially over the past few years.
