    Only
    played one
    very briefly, but...
    It was kinda like a strat with balls on steroids.
    Actually rather nice, all round - but not enough for me to pull the trigger back in 1999.
    Ended up getting an Epi Sheraton blonde out of Samick in 1995 - poor boy's Gibson ES-335.
    Word is they stopped making Blueshawks early or mid 2000's ?? But there may be an Epi one, or very similar...

    It's always good to know the current values of gear.

    I'm not always up on the inflation or deflation of gear.

    I remember when Fender American Strats & Teles were $500.00 new and now they're $1999.00 new.

    I, also, remember when dealers would poo poo Norlin gear.

    Now, Gibson Norlin is obscenely overpriced.

    Things change.

    Except musicians generally don't have $'s and will try to give the value of an oar for the Queen Mary.

    It's nice to have expensive/quality gear but selling it is a chore and the inquiries are mostly unreasonable disengenuous beggars.

    I have to financially struggle to justify acquiring my gear.

    It's a slap in the face when you're offered a fraction of what something is worth even when you're generously discounting the item(s).

    I sometimes feel that much of what I own will be with me when I die.

    I traded a red blueshawk with maestro in 2015 and am looking to get another one. Thought I might look yours up on Craigslist but don’t know which cl it’s on. I am in Amarillo, TX

    Sorry, no barnacles please.
