    I've been thinking long and hard for a while about this, and had a discussion with my son also regarding selling most of my gear and using the money towards an older Porsche 911, most likely a 1987 or 1988, preferably a coupe. I've wanted a Porsche since I was 12...that's a long time. This desire has increased since I started doing HPDEs in my WRX. My playing has been reduced to a minimal amount...I don't need 7 guitars and 4 amps, and I would get more pleasure from the Porsche.

    I've decided that I'm only going to keep two guitars and one amp, and everything else goes.
    Staying is my Gibson CS-336, my Ron Kirn Barnbuster Tele, and my 1971 Marshall SuperLead 100 (this was bought as an investment also, and as one of the things I'm passing on to my son Michael).
    As for my pedals, I'm only keeping my EMMA ReezaFratzitz, my Skin Pimp Mark III fuzz, and my Fulltone GT-500 Boost/Distortion.

    What is going?
    Guitars
    1999 Fender MIA Strat in Ocean Turquoise Metallic with maple neck, Fender Red Label HSC - $800/ OBO[​IMG]

    2004 CIJ double bound Tele with Bigsby and VVT pickups $900 [​IMG]

    2005 Custom Shop Time Machine 63 Tele NOS in CAR, which was never even played and still has the plastic on the pickguard. SOLD

    2006 Gibson Diamond Series ES-335 with Bigsby in Pelham Blue - $3,000[​IMG][​IMG]


    2007 Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded in Honeyburst.(ON HOLD)

    Amps
    1971 Marshall JMP Tremolo 50w smallbox with original footswitch and Bulgin power cord, NOS tubes -$2,800[​IMG][​IMG]


    Carol-Ann OD2 100 EL34 in cream tolex ($2,700), all original[​IMG]

    Paul Ruby Train Wreck Rocket clone built for John Speck. This is Diana; nos tubes, including 70s Saratov EL84s (ON HOLD).[​IMG]

    Pedals going are:
    Line 6 MM4 with box, papers, and Line 6 power supply - $140

    rare and original 1985 MIJ Boss Dimension C- works perfectly - $180

    Dr. Scientist Tremolessence Version 2, excellent and barely used...with box and papers - $200

    MXR Carbon Copy with box and papers, excellent and barely used - $120

    CAE dual Fasel MC404 Wah pedal - like new condition, used only once - $145

    I also have 4 cabs, 1997 Marshall 1960 TV 412, Bogner 412 UberKab, Mojo 212 (my favorite I think..Celestion Gold and a Scumbag G12H75), and a Mesa 112 with a Fane Medusa 150. I haven't yet decide which cab is staying, so no prices yet.
    Prices do not include shipping or Paypal; we can work that out.
    PMs or emails for inquiries and more details.

    That Paul Ruby amp is a steal. That guy is a hell of a builder.

    Porsche water cooled the 911's in 2000, picking up about 40 hp by maintaining
    the optimal temperature.
    Look at the listings on Ebay, the fully loaded ones hold their value.
    Porsche prefers to build them that way, in the $80 -100K market, a few thousand either
    way will not drastically affect sales.
    Likely you will spend equal time on a creeper as you will behind the wheel.
    You can paint, restore, till the end of time, but you cannot erase time and mileage off of a vehicle.
    I would budget $50k and look for a solid 2004 or so, with low mileage.
    Your tastes may change and you may want a luxury sedan. I've pined for a 911 for quite awhile and cannot justify the insurance for a car I might drive 6 or 8 times a month.

    The 336 (figured top?)is very nice, the Strat is a stunner, very classy.

    The blue 335 looks so much like the DG-335 or the Trini Lopez except using the standard Gibson headstock. Really like it just wish I was in better financial standings to place an offer.

    I had a Turbo back in 96' and miss it terribly. Good luck. Porsche's truly are as good as advertised. No car ass glides around a corner like a Porsche.

    Just remember an older Porsche = about $15k... rebuilding the motor when it goes will be another $15k. Been there done that. I have guitars again now.

    Just busting your chops. I mean it's still all true, but have fun anyway. You only go around once in life.
