I have this Samick that I've had for over 2 years now. It's been sitting here in it's almost mint condition and I have no idea of the value. I got it from a pawn shop for $40. I know it's worth way more then that, but I have no idea of the value.

All of my friends have said it's a $200+ value with the parts alone that it has on it. Aparently there are alot of parts that are professional internal and extermal.

Well anyway. Does anyone know the value? Or could they help me?

Here are pics.

I don't think its worth more than $200 but I'm not sure. Do you have any more info on it, model #, ect...? From what I can find brand new their guitars aren't very expensive. I've never even heard of them.

Bennett makes some nice guitars....but yours, with the humbuckers, is not super valuable IMO...
Maybe $100 or so.....

don't know the company, and it's hard to tell the quality from pictures, but it looks nice. i forget what it's called, but that bridge and nut combo (i forget what the specific types are called) usually mark a fairly nice rocking electric. everything looks fairly standard. it really doesn't look like anything has been upgraded. depends on the quality. if it's good quality, it'd probly be $300+ new. since you got it for only $40, i'd assume it's not great quality...

maybe a 100 bucks, the fine tuners would be worth decent cash

I payed $40 for it because the pawn shop knowes nothing about value. I've gotten a $350 leather Wilson's coat off of them for $20 and it was still in it's bubble wrapping from the factory.

The two things of numbers/letters I found were (this one is a label under the "Made in Korea" thinger) SKT-550F/PS
The other one is up top on the neck: 597123947

Does that help, Josh?

I could only find info on this guitar in Korean. In Korea they go for about 310,000 won, which converts to $333.27 USD.

Thats what I figured... I couldn't find any info on it in America.

So if I priced it at $100 it would be a good deal then? So I should be able to get $100 for it?

$100 would probably be a good deal and I'm guess that if you are patient you can get $100.

Aww. Poor thing needs to be played from the looks of it. That neck doesn't look like it's even been touched. It doesn't look bad, but I wouldn't expect a whole lot. Is it sound electronically? Any pops or crackles in the pots or jack? The flame top looks pretty nice so it should at least attract a little attention. If that was a real floyd rose, I'd put it at 150 to start. If not, 100 or so. If the neck was in good shape I'd personally probably pay about 120 or so. I don't think that's unfair it all. It looks immaculate. Why are you selling it?

your first guitar had a floyd rose on it? that must have been a pain in the ass.
I personally like floyd roses. What you can do with them makes up for them being a pain to work with sometimes.
Try to get $150 from that guitar.
It's got a locking tremolo, looks real nice with a flametop, and looks like it could be a fast axe. The neck looks very nice. If I had any spare cash and I wasn't doing this gun contest I'd take it from you depending on the wood it was made out of.

100 tops. Its a "no-name" guitar. But what kind of wood is it, and what hardware including the humbuckers does it have? From what it looks like, it just looks like a standard samick.

Oh ^ floyd roses are the devil. I got one on my ibanez and it makes me want to slam my head on a bed of nails at times.
