    Found this at a local pawn shop. I love the neck it is really straight/level and 22 frets. I've read all of the old post on these guitars. That said, I think I might try to nab it for $100 or so. I know it's crafter in the USA, but I've read it may have just been the neck. It's the one with the slanted humbucker bridge and 2 single coils. Five way selector and turbo switch system. Can anyone give me the latest insight on these guitars? I heard good things, except maybe tuners......I would think that a 2 year production guitar, from the 90's might be nice to hold on to. Help me make a decision and what is a good price, not a low ball. Dang GAS has got ahold of me with this one. Thanks ahead for any help! IMG_1316.jpg IMG_1317.jpg IMG_1318.jpg

    I don't know a fair price, but I would like to have it. Peavey necks just seem to fit my hand better than any other brand. I would play that thing every gig. I wish it was in a pawn shop near central Arkansas.

    Have an early 90s Raptor...
    Yes on the neck
    I did have to replace the machines...
    Buttons were plastic...
    Other than that...
    $100.00 for an instrument with a nice neck...

    Yep, that's it.....finding some great deals there! They're too high on the that MIM Deluxe! I got an 03' MIM for $125, with the factory blue falling off of it.....turned it into this.....for now. May go back to the factory Agave Blue at some point.

    $100 for MIA and surf green? You could do a lot worse!

    I bought it, gave her a good tune up and I couldn't be happier. No more gas for now! I started a second thread with pictures after purchase, check it out.

    After I got my new addition home, I went to work..........cleaned the neck and frets, restrung, neck relief set, string height corrected (has micro-tilt neck too), intonation adjusted and it's spot on! The blue has aged, comparing it to the paint under the pickguard. WELL worth $100! Here's some more pictures for y'all.
