1981 eagle
« on: May 14, 2013, 02:55:17 PM »
a month ago an eagle in white went for £500 with only 1 bidder , i couldnt bid myself at the time due to finances

another has come on now in white but with a starting bid of £650 , it's yellowed a fair bit and there are several marks on the rear of the guitar

i've been looking for one of these for 20 yrs and have owned a hawk and i now have a falcon so i go a bit glazed over an eagle

what is it really worth ? this is only the 2nd i have ever seen for sale i would like it but i dont wanna pay way over the odds out of nostalga

already got the links for the wings pages but there are no values mentioned on there

Hi Carl, if you're concerned about condition, I take it that although you play, you also collect. I've seen quite a few Eagles go through on various sites, and as I also have a Hawk And Falcon have obviously thought about buying an Eagle. Personally I think the seller is asking quite a high price for that model, maybe because of the colour, but gotta say I have seen better condition guitars go for the five hundred quid mark. This is of course only my opinion, but I reckon my Falcon is every bit as good, both in sound quality, build and looks, as any Eagle. Gonna keep my money in my pocket for now, and play what I've got. 

Happy Hunting To You, may you find a great guitar, and have the money to get it at that time........................
