How much do I expect to pay for a Rickenbacker 350 ( not v63) mint condition probably 1990- 92. I do some research on internet but I find no informations. Pick-ups are not toasters , and it's not a short scale (it have 24 frets).

Try contacting George Gruhn at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville, Tennesee, US. He is a reputable appraiser and would know the value.

There have been a few 350's on ebay over the past few months. Last week a jet glo went for $960 + $65 shipping; there was one a month earlier for just over $900 (but it had a nasty looking scuff on the bottom). I won an auction for a mint 350 (with vintage case) in November at $960 but the seller never shipped it (grrrr); another sold around the same time for $995. The fire glo's have been going for a little more - around $1100. Bottom line, you will pay at least $900 (more likely, close to $1,000) for a 350 jet glo in reasonable condition, but that is not bad considering that the 350v63 are now selling for close to $1500 new.

You can check what guitars have sold for in the past on eBay by doing a search of completed listings - unfortunately, it only goes back a couple months.

Did you complain about that? That's screwed up.

The guy kept saying that he was busy or travelling and would ship it the following week. After about 6 weeks I raised a complaint through PayPal and was able to get my money back. I probably should have complained to eBay as well, but at that time I was just so glad to have my money back that I didn't push the issue.
