Yep, just saw your 6120 on craigslist. Looks real nice!
That's a nice mix in the collection, and a heck of a haul. I'd have a hard time selling the 6120, otherwise those your are passing on would not stay with me long either. Quite the collection!
I say this gentleman had fine taste in guitars...May he Rest In Peace.
Very nicely balanced collection. Yeah, RIP. I wonder if he was active on any forums and we might have known him?
Not a bad little collection.
Are you keeping anything?
Nice bunch of geetars. You'll have your hands full for a while
The Rickenbacker looks identical to my 360/12V64.
Mine is a re-issue, so is this guitar from the 60s? Holy Makrel!
The Rick and the Martin are no longer for sale, I have a reservation
Are you going to list them here at G-T ?
Yes. I have those first few listed locally on CL & Facebook but I’ll likely post them here as well.
Thanks for the reply
Gretsch 6120,D-18, Hummingbird, you can let the rest go, those you take to bed.
WOW, just WOW! Not only some awesome guitars, but they all appear to be in excellent condition as well. I bet you feel like a kid in a candy shop right now. How awesome!! I'm sure as time goes on, you'll figure out which ones work for you and which ones don't. Congrats!
Your not hanging around
Restringing the Eaton Duo Jet this morning. WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME LOCKING TUNERS MADE IT SO EASY TO STRING BIGSBY-EQUIPPED GUITARS?!
Just kidding, I knew about it but never had the opportunity until now.
Here are some bench shots from this morning.
Well, how long ago did the gent pass on ?
And being an estate distressed sale, should authorities make you a wanted person for maybe possessing (nearly-) stolen merchandise (?)
. . . better unload it all quick (jus' pokin' fun).
[OK above pics jus' got posted . . .
. . . Betcha the widow felt her husband's guitar collection landed in good hands as he would have wished]
He passed away in early February and it wasn't too long after that I started talking with the family helping them understand the full retail/used market value of everything. I didn't make an offer until they knew the full, honest value of everything.
Great collection and what a fun project for you.
You did the family a big service. It would have been very difficult for them to try and sell those guitars. You should feel good about yourself.
I’m curious, did any family members feel the need, or keep a guitar to remember the man?
