I only just heard about this. Being a tech, his passing didn't cause as much of a flurry as would a strutting rock god, but he was arguably one of best luthiers around... and quite a bit younger than I thought he was.
Have you seen this:I've just discovered that this is potentially worth five to six hundred quid. Needs a bit of work, but it's straight and bodily undamaged. Ideally, it needs machine heads and reducer bushes, pickup rings and one switch. 50 quid all told. Oh yeah, and new strings! Those that are on it are from the 90s.
It's a Kay Effector, sold by Sears in the USA, and somehow made its way to Belfast. I bought it in 1993, but it's a ton weight and I never really got on with it. The effects do work, they're just a bit tame in these days of multi-effects pedals.
I hate soldering, and nearly always burn myself, so I'll ask one of the ladies at work to do the switch.
