hi there,
Iīm a newbie from germany (near frankfurt) and have a question about my V from 1977 (Serial-No. I772224). I bought it 2 years ago for about $250 in a very bad condition. it was painted in faggy-pink (in germany we say rosa) so I had to repaint it. because I didnīt know anything about the original color I painted it silver- and bluemetallic in the stil of michael schenker. the neck-pu is a Super 70 (s-no. 26929) and the bridge-pu is a Seymour Duncan (JB,J). itīs got a big pick-guard that goes under the bridge and has silver metal potties that seem to be new. does anybody knows what kind of V it is? is it one of the rocket roll series or is it just a normal V-copy and how much is it worth (just for information cause I never gonna sell my baby!!!!)
I try to to show a pic but I donīt know if itīs gonna work. Iīm not good in pc-work: \image()
???? tried it for more then an our. Iīm to stupid. ask for pictures:

Stationc,weolcome to the forum.I believe all 70's V's were the Rocket Roll series.The 2387 bolt on,2387DX set neck and the 2387CT korina.The first two came in cherry finish only.I myself have 3,I love them.As for value,in the non-original condition I'd say between $200 to $350 on a good day.I'm not sure what that comes out to in German curancy.Hit the link at the bottom and check out page 2 of my gallery and you'll see one in the original finish or check out Harry and Hasey's site.

thanks Ccs for the welcome,
nice babyīs that you have on your site. my V is looking exactly like your favourite baby (the black one, I guess) except for the potties. I still donīt know how to put an image up here (need a german speeking guy to explain it to me) but I sent some pics to a forum member named Brian and asked him to show em here. by the way our currency (Euro) is a little higher than the $. I guess 1,30$ for one Euro. itīs a little late here in good old germany and I have to go to work very early. stay tuned!

thanks a lot ibanezfreak,
as you can see, the guitar isnīt fixed yet. while making the electronic, the guitar-store made the cables to short and now the pickguard wont fit the. I didnīt have the time to make it new cause I started working a couple of weeks ago and that takes too much time. what about the pus of my rrII. are they original? cause Iīve seen pictures where both pus were gold.

how do you like this way of painting??
what pus were oroginaly used for this V? is it realy a rocket roll?? I thought only the korina-made Vs were rockets. I used to have a new korina-one in 78 and sold it a few years later cos I needed money. Iīm ashamed I did. does anybody sell one?

The korina's were Rocket seniors.I believe the original pickups were Super 70's.If you go over to the left and use the "Keyword search" put in:
and then switch to "subject line" you should come up with thread I started a long time ago that has alot of info.I myself being a big Schenker fan like the paint.The silver/blue is a nice alternative.I've seen some scary color combos over the years.
