Take a look at my backside!
didnt realize you were getting one of these - should go nicely with your S&A Pearly
So I went to Denmark st yesterday and I met my aged & signed Perry.
She is a beauty, good weight with amazing aging and that signature on the headstock is pretty cool tbh... But, why is the back red ??????
The "real" one is brown, isnt it ??? The just aged is brown back so why the the a/s red ??
Thats how I like it, with brown back not the usual red that you find on any r9 !!!
Here is the back of mine.
question for you guys...
I've been thinking about modifying my VOS Perryburst further... I am thinking about returning her to her '70s glory of grovers and no PU covers... a couple questions...
1. are VOS models collectable? If I do these mods it may damage any collectability to the guitar. How do you guys think it might impact it? devalue? no harm since it is true to the way the guitar looked in the 70's? depends on the buyer?
I don't want to get into the whole debate about "it's my guitar, do what I want with it". or... "you shouldn't look at a guitar as an investment". I will do what I want... I just want to know what long term implications it may have.
2. I had a beano and I kinda like the grovers so I know what impact that will have... other than, do you think it will require a new screw hole or will the original work? If I do, is there still a way to go back without having to fill re-hole/angle the kluson's in a way that creates new holes?
3. how would the covers being removed change the sound/tone of the guitar?
As you said it s your guitar and you do whatever you want with it but for collectable guitars I dont think a vos is part of the collectable thing.
If someone says it is, dont modify anything.
Just my opinion though...
for some buyers it may make a difference, for others it wont be a big deal.
the fact that its VOS vs. aged/signed, to me, suggests there will be less of the former with it than, otherwise - but, to some, it will still matter. what that means in real terms (i.e. how many, how much would impact the price, how much longer would it take to sell, etc.) are all debatable...
if it were me, and i didnt just buy it to sell it, i would make those changes. even if you did get a few hundred less if you sold, wouldnt your enjoyment of it in the interim be worth that.
then again, i dont really consider VOS collectible guitars
My opinion: if you see the guitar as:
Investment -> don't change anything
Player -> change whatever you want
If someone is looking for a Perry aged/signed PM me
mine is for sale now in London
2013 Gibson Les Paul Joe Perry aged/signed - SUPER RARE !!!! | eBay
Im new here.. and simply amazed by your collective knowledge on the topic!! It's fantastic !
OK my guitar is technically a burst (blackburst) and its a 1996 CS Joe Perry.. one of the original 200 run... vastly different from the production model that followed....and he signed it personally to me.. so thats kinda cool right??
And i just scored a pretty sweet deal on a 2011 R9 Faded Tobacco (I'm the first owner.. all case candy etc included)
I'm still trying to figure out how to upload fotos!!!?? Can I do it directly onto this site or must i have an external URL ??
And thanks for the welcome
No direct upload, only via external URL
working on it... thanks in advance for your patience !
Mine is now for sale-
Is this section the new eBay or what? Finding out the hard way that overpriced guitars don't often sound as good as they look, aren't we?
Um, no...I'm selling mine because I want to use the funds to purchase a guitar of the vintage flavor. I really want a vintage 58 strat. Besides I still have #5 so I still can play and enjoy a aged/signed Perry. I admit I don't play it as a main player but that's just due to the signed factor.
I own 4 other 'aged' guitars (two by TM) and they get played all the time. Some don't even play their aged ones for fear of devaluation. Me, I don't care about de-valuing those aged ones because I'm keeping them. I ended up with 2 S/A perrys because of a vendor who tried to **** me over on one of the signed/aged when they were on preorder. Because of their actions I had to jump thru hoops and as result secured 2 but had a shoe in for a very low serial, but could not know which vendor would sell the lower serial. If I only had one, it would not be up for sale, but since I do have 2, why not let someone else enjoy a great guitar. Perry name aside (and that other guy who owned it too) it joins the rest of the 2013 lineup as great sounding guitars, but it does have its own character.
