I recently paid $350 for a like new Classic Series 60s tele and thought I got a great deal. You win. Way to go!
Wow - I don't have any Craigslist adds like that around here, but it is Nashville where every guitar is worth more
I did. I replied maybe about 30 minutes after the post went up, but I spent some time trying to lookup photos and pine-bodied 52s from 2004. It seemed to good to be true.
I think that delay was too much, but I wouldn't have been able to drive there for a few hours. Congrats. I was a little sad to miss it, but seeing another TDPRI member get it makes me happy. Congrats!
p.s. although not nearly as nice a score, the CL gods smiled on me earlier this year with an almost new offset I'd been trying to replace since foolishly selling it years ago. You are right, they are out there, but it's pretty rare.
Dang! Even if you don't need another guitar, you could flip for it a moderate profit.
Damn, what a score!!!! Congrats.
It's the same in Chicago. You are lucky to see a used guitar for 10% off retail price. Fender discontinues a line and they become "rare gems" since there's "not a lot of these around".
There's been a used red sparkle squire telecaster for $200 for some time too.
That’s a deal, congratulations!
VERY nice score congrats.
I've score A LOT of AMAZING deals like yours at pawnshops, but the best I've done on CL is a '75 Fender Mocha Strat.
CL's in my area are trash when it comes to guitars.
On the other hand, pawnshops have been GOLDMINES for vintage and high end guitars for the last 15+ years.
It's all great to be able to find deals like this.
The truth is, you have to put in the time and energy and be diligent.
I hit as many pawnshops as I can all day long, 5 days a week, and it's paid of yearly, many times over.
were you dressed like this:
Because you stole that guitar
What a score!
I hate you. Haha. Nice score.
Nice to see one of our own catching the gold ring!
We try not to disparage the knowledge and skill sets of drummers......
But this is not evidence of smarts behind the kit, is it?
This is the side effect of the Chinese CVs being so sharp - sounds like he got them all conflated with one another.
Anyway, Congrats! on maybe the best deal seen here at TDPRI, in 12 months or probably more.
I did see a very beat up AV52 about this era, in 2011 in Fairfax County at the GC on Lee Highway, for $ 600 no case. But it was really rough - I would've had to take it as is, or risk hepatitus trying to play those gristly strings.
I'm going to change the switch to neck-both-bridge wiring this week.
That dark neck sound isn't very useful.
Hopefully it isn't a haunted guitar that he was desperate to get rid of(ha!ha!)!!
wow I used to see deals like that 10-20 years ago, but never anymore. What a score--best I've seen or heard about in years!
Serious score!!!...just WOW. Clearly the Seller was misinformed. Just last week in a moment of stupidity I posted my near mint 2008 AVRI 52 for $1200 in preparation for buying a Gibby. I was offered $1K quickly by a known local guitar hound and turned him down. I then pulled out the old AVRI and gave it a whirl and promptly removed my listing. Keeping for now....great guitar that I just should not sell. I don't play it very often...but you know how it goes. Yours is the best deal that I've seen since I bought my 1967 Casino for $1150.....the guy swore it was from Japan....I informed him otherwise....he still took my paltry sum for a vastly more expensive guitar. It happens...rarely....but it happens.
After my decision to keep the 2008 AVRI...I too decided that it is time to finally change to a more modern switching and eliminate the useless (to me) 'dark circuit'. I don't want to change the sound of the guitar as it is....but I do want to have pos. 1 be neck, pos. 2 blend...and pos. 3 bridge. I've looked at this before and would love to hear how the task goes for you...if you video and take photos I would be ever so appreciative. I have been playing blended by keeping the switch between the 2nd and 3rd position and this works...but is less than ideal.
