The 7-28 is not 7-string, but rather 7/8 size.
Last time I bought something in a pawnshop I got a 1983 Fender Super Champ, with the original foot switch and a vintage Phase 100 pedal for $100.
My only experience, but they were very nice to me there.
I know. I was making a joke.
Years ago I scored a Gibson SGII in great shape at a pawn shop in the bustling metropolis of Euless Texas, and it cost me $40, and if I'd pay cash today, the nice man would throw in a chainsaw case "...for free". Later that year at a pawn shop in Plano Texas I found an alpine white Les Paul Custom for $400 "...because one of the pickups is bad". Handed the man his asking price, and told him that he was really driving a hard bargain.
Both sales were 1986 or so. Oddly enough, the SGII went to a friend of mine who has asked me if I want it back now that it's not getting played.
Not a chance.
Here in in Texas the pawnshops have hold items for 30 days.
Within those 30 days, the police make their rounds with a list of reported stolen items from around the area.
Pawnshops are all checked on a very regular basis.
The main reason I picked up these crazy deals is, the people who pawned them were desperate for money, the pawnshop didn't know what the really had, and I knew what had and it's true value.
