:erm: Yes.

I'd play it first (if possible) to see if you like it. :snax:

At first I thought it might be a Jedson, but those pickups lead me to believe it may be a Hoyer. In either case, I don't think it's stock.

If you like the way it plays, it's definitely worth the $300.

I've never seen a guitar listed for sale that doesn't "play great"

those pickups look high AF

Looks pretty cool. For $300, I'd pick it up if it agrees with your playing.

I wouldn't advise listening to this, but if you really wanna hear how those pickups sound, you can:



According to the comments on that vid, those pickups were made by Bill Lawrence.

This vid is at least a little more interesting (dude doesn't have his amp turned up loud enough though):

I'll go against the grain and say no.

I think you could talk him/her down to $200, and for $300 I think you can do better.
