It has the finish of a CS-200 but the tuners of a CS-300. Needs some fret work but otherwise looks to be in pretty good condition.

Ohh, I like this!
Love the Cardinal line, and a sucker for a single pupper. :love:

Auctions tend to go higher than outright prices. Bidding is an addiction for some and some just HAVE to win price be darned.

I've got a powerful deterrent here. I already have four Cardinals, three CS-350s and a CS-250. Although I still can't help myself with the PEs. Currently at 11 and no sign of slowing down.

I think the the term "Pathetic Hopeless Addict" is more apropos. :loon:

Looks like a CS-350T, but with a fixed Ray Bridge featuring Crusty's favorite saddles. I look at pictures of Cardinals all the time, never seen one like it.

It's likely a CS-200 or CS-300 (considering the tuners as the 2XX had semi-closed tuners). What is throwing me off is the 2XX had the "open pore" matte finishes like this one, not the 3XX. Serial indicates 1981 so this one is from early on in the series. It's possible the original CS-200 did have sealed tuners like the 300 and 350. My CS-250 is an 82 and had covered gear/semi-closed tuners on it, not sealed.

It ended at $351.00 which isn't too bad considering it's condition. I would have thought it would have gone higher. There again I paid $318 with OHSC for the last CS-350 I got.
