Rare Hiroshi Kido Tele and Bootsy Collins STAR bass

Post by Theprofessorlg » Fri Sep 17, 2010 12:22 pm

Hi Everyone,

This is my first time posting and I would appreciate any help I could get on this. I have TWO Hiroshi Kido "Kids" guitars. I have a Tele replica http://www.flickr.com/photos/54030585@N ... placements. It is MINT. I am trying to get more info on the instruments. I know Mr. Kido worked for ESP and did high end replicas and one-offs. I know these are rare and get snatched up by collectors quickly when they find them on the market. Can anyone tell me anything else or how I can get a value for these? I know some collectors are interested, but I do not know if I should keep or sell, and if so for how much. Thank you for any help in advance.

Try getting in touch with Andrew Mechling. He used to run www.guitarsjapan.com and had a couple Kid's guitars for sale over the years.

The coolest Kid's guitar I ever saw was a Fool SG copy that was dead on.
