Got anything ladder braced?
If I had 10K lying around, I'd probably buy 2 bucket list guitars:
Collings I35-LC w/Throbaks
...barring that, I'd settle for one of those, and buy some bucket list amps:
Swart AST MkII
Gibson GA-50 with the leather covering and 2 speakers
Just because you have a bucket full of bucks doesn't mean you have to empty the bucket. If you're hankering for a 335 do some looking around first. There is just as good and better for less out there.
I’m not interested in imported guitars. I’m sure there’s an exception somewhere but basically I like older American guitars.
I had a Gibson ‘54 LP reissue in mind and a Baker B3. Gene Baker builds killer guitars.
I ended up getting the best of both worlds: a Baker B3 Wood SL with Lollars ‘50s wind P90’s…
Have a look at Amelia Island Fine Guitars boutique on Reverb. They’re in FL and have one of the nicest selection I came across. Plus you won’t spend a fortune and stay with some $$ to spend on extra gear…
I'd pass on the repaired headstock guitar purchase. You'll have to apologize for that at a resale somewhere down the road. If it's one you'll keep for the rest of your life and was repaired properly that might be a different purchase decision though. Don't get me wrong, that a repaired headstock guitar isn't a fine instrument, but the resell is in the moment and a new owner is going to have to factor that into the purchase. A repaired headstock whether it's been time tested or just last week is a matter of uncertainty with a new buyer. It's like trying to sell a used wooden baseball bat that's been cracked. Yeah, I have those too for the batting cages, Maple or Ash.
well, I have a 69 LP with an old repair and I love it to death and it was cheap, cheap and I take it out all the time.
I actually ended up buying a repaired 60s ES-355 yesterday with a headstock repair, missing pick guard and repro case.
The neck is big big! Which surprised me because my 330 from the same period is small. I plugged it in and knew it was a keeper.
I got a really good deal on it and they included shipping it to me. The tuners, pickups, etc... are all real.
I’ll take the solid repaired old one over the more expensive one I can’t use live any day and if I sell it someday the person buying it will be someone like me who wants the same.
So I was able to get what I want way way way under what I wanted to spend. All is well in the world! I can go back today and maybe buy something else!
lots of cool guitars at the show (about 5 Bursts)
That 4th strat is pretty sharp, I like how the grain pops through the burst. Something about that 175 with the P90 makes me want to bash out some open chords at the edge of breakup.
I like the natural 58 335.
If you get a chance Google
Well strung guitars
200 gtrs in the store.
$10,000,000 in one room.
The owner owns the now defunct
"Songbirds guitar museum"
Early 60s Custom color Firebirds.
6 1959 Gbison Les Pauls
At least 50 Black Guard Teles.
A 1950 Broadcaster that came from Entwhistles collection.
I wanted to buy a 1963 Polaris white Firebird. I thought it would be between $16,000 and $24,000.
I was wrong, it was $113,000.
Needless to say I didnt get it.
Good luck with your new Guitar!
I hope the pic uploads.
With a $380,000 1959 Les Paul
Congrats on the 355 amp360!
Congrats on the ES355, glad everything worked out for you on this one and even better then you hoped.
Ya know, I have little use for a perfect museum piece in a glass case. I’m not a fan of fake “relics” either. An honest, classic player that has been around the block a bit is a lot more fun! Awesome find, and gorgeous!!!
I like your 355 better than mine! Wanna trade?!? Awesome find!
I keep wondering where he's going to get all the eunuchs from? Is there a eunuch supply co?
The Yamaha SA2200 is one of the finest guitars on the market,
Amp360, that's a beautiful guitar. Congrats!
A really nice 335 is a great choice as long as it’s what you really want and will play.
Beautiful too. A lovely thing to have in a home on a stand just ready to play
To my surprise my guitars have outstripped everything else I’ve ever had in terms of return on investment. That’s not why I buy them. But it doesn’t seem like money spent so much as investment in me my playing and if the money works that’s great too.
Invest in lumber. It's gone up 300% already.
