Re: Vintage Premier - Help me identifying it

Re: Vintage Premier - Help me identifying it

Yes, I did some research and the APKs had black interiors but by other hand they didn't had re-rings.

Re: Vintage Premier - Help me identifying it

Right, the black paint and re-rings are confusing me.
The kit is far away from me so I am trying to understand if it is worth to go pick it up.
Thanks again :)

Re: Vintage Premier - Help me identifying it

Any bet in wood type?
Can I assume this a good quality kit just for the fact of having re-rings?
I am searching for a vintage kit that's easy to tune (and that holds in tune!)...

Re: Vintage Premier - Help me identifying it

The seller said the kit is from 80's. May be an APK from early 80's?
