I finally got a chance to play the modified SG at practice last night. I had broken my thumb and it's finally healed up enough. I was playing through a Line 6 Spider Valve set to an overdriven AC30 tone with just a clean volume Holy Schneike! I have to agree with you, 3pup, a mahogany slab p-90 guit...

UPDATE I traded Joe out of this SG (who is a wonderful guy to deal with, BTW). The pickups are, in fact, the Bill Lawrence designed circuitboard pickups. No big deal to me. Never having met a Gibby pickup that I like (I wouldn't have liked them if they were 57 classics, either), I had decided to swa...

Thanks for the heads up. While very nice, not what I'm looking for. I really like the look of a black guitar with biding, crown inlays and no pickguard (very important to me). I own a 79 Hamer Sunburst in this configuration and was looking for an explorer shaped guitar to compliment it. Fortunately,...

WTB: Greco EX 800 HB

Extreme Long Shot!

Looking for a Greco or similar Explorer copy, black finish, body & neck binding and crown inlays. No pickguard. Condition not critically important. Willing to pay a fair or more than fair (to the seller) price. I'm not interested in any other finishes or colors.

Re: Update to guitars for sale: Gibson, Hamer, Fender, etc

1981 one of the first off the line Gibson ES-335 DOT reissue. Ultra rare because it is one of the 1st they made, supposedly if you believe internet hype, with parts left over from the 60s. ToneQuest magazine says the 1st 2 years are the ones to own if you want a 335 DOT I have an 82 dot neck reissu...

I'm not sure if brazilian rosewood is "better", but it is more historically accurate as that was what was used on real '59 Gibsons. And it's a pretty rare wood from what I understand. Tokai can probably get away with using it on higher end models because their production is so much lower than Gibson...

I paid $3,000 for my 03 LS-320 VF a couple of years ago. At the time, I was seeing them go for around $2,700. But I loved the top, so I went ahead and paid a "premium". I can honestly say that I wouldn't sell it now for $4,000 or more. It is my #1 guitar by far. I've owned and played several Gibson ...

Your right. I'm sure I would have loved either of those, although I probably would not have been willing to pay what I'm sure they were worth. I'm not really a bass player, but like having one around to noodle around on, so I only need something that plays and sounds reasonably well. My experience w...

Update

I've got a Japanese Rick 4001 copy coming in (bolt on neck, probably an Ibanez). Hopefully, it'll be a good one and my bass search will be over.

WTB: Japanes Bass Guitar

Kind of a longshot, but I thought I would put out a feeler here. I currently have a Tokai Jazz Sounds bass with a P-bass neck pickup. It's a great bass, but the guy who sold it to me would like to purchase it back. I'd like to accomodate him, but would like to find a replacement first. So what I'm l...

Schwinnnng! Very nice. And great photos as well. I like the violin finish much better than the cherry burst, and yours is phenomenal. If only they made them with a lemondrop finish, oh well. 8 lbs!!! I'm very jealous. My 320 weighs right at 9 lbs, not too heavy, but I sure wish it was just a little ...

All I can say is good luck. It's definitely worth the search! My 03 LS-320 is simply the best guitar I've had the pleasure to own and play. Much better then guitars that cost 2-3 times as much. Sorry, it's not for sale, nor is it likely to ever be. I got mine from Tommy's House of Wayward guitars: h...

Ahh, I see my mistake now. I was looking at the size restrictions for international express, not priority mail. The priority mail is restricted to 24" of length.

I'm still willing to ship internationally, but obviously the buyer would need to pick up the shipping.
