i've got a question

Postby jermsywermsy » Wed May 28, 2008 7:29 am

How much do you think a 1970's suprasonic ludwig would go for?
its got ten lugs, and the serial number is 1884222.
i could'nt find any information about that serial number, im sure i just wasnt looking hard enough or something.

any info would be great! thanks!

yeah, i get what your saying but right now i cant really post a decent picture because i just took apart the whole thing to polish it and such.

i found the serial number though, and it supposibly is from 1964 or 65.
but yeah, i'll post pictures as soon as possible.

What kind of badge? Any missing pieces? Chrome flaking? All original? Brass shell/rims? Many things determine value, including the current market which is not the greatest. I've seen them sell for anywhere from $95 to $500

so the butt plate and throw off/ strainer are in pretty bad shape, but i haven't got around to polishing either one of them, so hopefully i'll have better pictures of them soon.

theres a little bit of crome flaking on there, but thats really it.

its got the original rims and tension rods, there not pictured only because there not done being cleaned yet.

i dont think im going to be selling it soon, just wanted to see what you guys thought, and thanks for the replies so far!

Looks like it's in pretty decent shape. Depending on which way the wind's blowing, you could probably get $150 - $250 on the Bay.

What are you cleaning the hardware with? Have you tried soaking them in Coka-Cola?
