So, due to some accidental pocket bidding on the eBay app, I know own a AJ-500M. It is not a factory second. I had it in my "Watch" list as I try and find a used value for these guitars. I own 6 Seagulls, two of which are all solids( 25th Anniversary and Maritime CW) so we will see how it compares.

Yeah I can do that. My profile pic actually has me unashamedly holding that axe.

Hey Rev., can you post a picture of your AJ100?  Edward

Comment by Rev. Matt Fontana on April 10, 2012 at 6:50pm

Thanks Ed and no problem on that note because I'll just do what I did with my Epiphone AJ-100 (a.k.a. Ed): get an L.R. Baggs undersaddle pickup.

Dean, Yep...I think that's very common!  Good for you though for fixing it yourself.  Edward

I got my PR350E cheap because the electronics didn't work.  At the time I didn't care 'cuz it was my first git and I didn't have an amp.  Talking to a tech at a shop got me looking at the piezo p/u under the saddle.  He told me to make sure it was VERY straight and parallel to the saddle.  When I changed strings, I readjusted it and everything is working FINE now.  All I need now is an amp.  Keeping It Fun, Dean

Rev., here's wishing you luck..."repaired electronics" may be a good bargaining tool to get the price lower, and if you don't need electronics then that works for you...if you do need electronics, then you get a refurbished pickup that will work for you!  Let us know what happens!  Edward

Comment by Rev. Matt Fontana on April 7, 2012 at 8:33am

Hey guys wish me luck because I've got my eye on a pre-owned Epiphone EJ-200 CE. They're only going to put a price on the guitar after they fix the electronics and I'm sorta chompin' at the bit to "git my hands on that axe"!
