Saw a neck-thru red Vandenberg at GC yesterday. Had parallel "bar" type inlays instead of dots. Anyone know what these things go for?

Indeed, a quality USA made guitar, neck thru, ebony fingerboard, 24.75" scale length, you can't go wrong with them. I had three Series I and two Series II Vandenbergs, they were the bolt on neck versions, the Customs came afterwards, then quilt tops, Peavey knew a thing or two about building guitars according to Grover Jackson..
Practice cures most tone issues.
Great Deals with MrWhipper, JoeyM, Del Hudson, skydive69 and Kramer Classic I
You are right Peavey knows a LOT about building guitars. I've had my hands on some early and mid 80s models and they were AWESOME!
The are probably the most under rated and under valued American made guitars I've ever seen. Especially on the secondary market. I bought a mid 80s Falcon that was sold as a tank. I had a hard time letting go of that one.
Amen to that, Peavey's build quality is excellent, the HP Special USA was also undervalued, they depreciate like a brick but they are amazingly well built guitars, they took everything on the Wolfgang and improved on it. I bought one from Cash Converters in the UK for £280, it had hardly been used, labels still present on the cavity covers, great playing guitar and extremely versatile thanks to pickups that were designed to be coil-tapped from the ground up.
With the Peavey Vandenberg, the Series I featured the Kahler 2700 Killer, the Series II, Custom and Quilt top all featured the 2720 Spyder and the Series III had the Ping/Peavey licensed Floyd Rose you find on the USA Wolfgangs, Tracers etc. At least I think that was correct on the Series III Vandenberg. With an R1 nut width, super slim neck, ebony fingerboard and custom wound Peavey pickups, they are crazy guitars. I would say get one if you have the chance, you won't regret it, I always fancied a Peavey Destiny, those looked rather nice.
Thanks for the info. I´m sure I won't regret i - it´s bringing it home and sneaking it past the wife that I will.
Which gc had a Vandenberg? Cool guitars, I would love a pink one!
you'll have to watch out for copies b'cuz china is starting to make vandenbergs now.
I was given a black bolt-on Vandy restoration project a long while back. Maybe 8 years or so. Got it put back together & playing nicely, but I really don't care for reverse headstocks, so I posted it on ebay. I couldn't find any others for price point reference, so I started it at $99.99. I was amazed that it went as high as it did - $650+/-, if I remember correctly. Really regret letting it go, as it sounded fantastic, and I could have learned to live with the reverse HS. But, I really needed the cash for some cymbals, as I was a gigging drummer at the time.
"What's that guitar doing here?"
"Ah, my friend must have forgotten to take it back with him, he'll call again for it though"
OK. I´ll let you know how it goes
Whoever gets a chance to grab it should.
