Good luck in your search. SS1s and even more so, SSIIs are pretty scarce

on this side of the pond. I love my ebony/crown SSII, but she's not for sale

right now...

Correct - the SS2 is also more contoured. Those are both SS-1s.

Yah, the SS II has a more asymetrical body. I also think they're different scale lengths.

Pretty embarrased I don't know for sure, but someone here will know. Also, the SS1

has 3 PUPs vs 2--a single in the neck and a Humbucker in the bridge...

Original SS I:

24.75" scale length, ssh, equal horns, 22 frets

Second generation SS I:

Same as above but 24 frets

SS II:

25.5" scale length, SH only, 22 frets, non-equal horns

I've got one that I don't play currently. So, I was about to offer it. But as starting thinking about it, I'm not read to let it go. They are getting pretty rare. Besides, mines pretty beat up so you probably wouldn't want it.

The SS1 I've got is pretty beat too, although no structural issues.

If you ever change your mind, I'd def. be interested...

Rock and Roll Vintage in Chicago, Illinois has 2 of them for around $1500 each... I believe they do ship outside of the US. Tell Heith the owner I sent you!!!! No wait... Maybe you better not!! LOL!!!!

These are not in France or Europe but they are both near mint and the seller is a reputable dealer.

Not unfair prices for ones this nice from a collection.

I have dealt with this dealer before and he is very good and also knows how to pack and ship guitars safely.

He recently got in this SSI and the SSII from the same collector. You may be able to offer him less.....he DOES deal. Also, I am fairly sure they also have the original cases.

Though the trem on it says Jackson so I doubt that is original - not that that matters maybe.

It most certainly would not be original. ;)

Not mine. But will be sold for market value more or less.

I asked that seller about the white po striping on the front a. Couple weeks back and he said they are removeable....think he said they were stick on.

Far cry from his original $3,000 listing. Told him then it was an 1985 and he told me I don't know what I'm talking about.

The Copper SSII is probably a little high, I paid less for mine.

Yes, you should bone up on your SS knowledge. ;)
