Wife and I stopped at an antique store a couple of weeks ago. In one of the cases was a Slingerland model 218. Was in good shape other than someone in the past drilled a whole in the side of the neck between the 5th and 6th or 6th and 7th, can’t remember which. Guess they thought they could make a 5 string out of it. I did not take pictures unfortunately. My question is what is a fair price to offer? As I said it’s in nice shape other than the small hole in the neck.

Some Slingerlands were pretty basic, others were equiped with good tone rings and fancier inlays, so it's impossible to give even a ballpark figure on value without photos. All I can say is that the hole in the neck hurts that value a lot no matter which model this is. To me, at least, I wouldn't give anything for a butcher job like that, and that's before I even know what else may have been ruined by the hack who used a drill on a poor innocent neck.
