So I just bought a Palmer guitar off of a friend for $200. It was a 1961 ES-335 copy. Here's a few pictures of it:




Basically I'm short on cash right now and I'm in a debate. I don't have a good amp at all so I'm thinking of selling the guitar back to him and saving up for a Fender Telecaster and a good amp. But I need to know if I'd be passing up on a good deal with this Palmer or not. I haven't been able to find much info on it and it plays fairly well but not as good as I'd anticipated. Any help UG?

I saw that one and that was what initially lead me to accepting his offer to sell it but I'm trying to see if anybody knows anything more about it. I'm probably going to have to replace a volume knob and input jack so far and that's all I know from my first set of playing around with it.

Well, for one thing...

The $200 you get for selling it back to your friend (if he gives you that much back) won't put much of a dent into your purchase of a "Fender Telecaster and a good amp"

I'd say keep it, and keep saving..

I'd keep it but if you want to sell it, sell it after you've saved up most of your new guitar and amp fund.

I say keep it, it sure is purdy...

Or if you want, I will give you $200 for it in a flash =)
