    Selling my Stafford Les Paul. I bought two Les Paul's at the same time and I can't justify keeping this far more luxurious model.

    Pictures here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/153840324@N04/albums/72157691971415801

    The Bad:
    -Appears to be a two-piece back? Not sure why; everything else appears to be top spec (aside from the next bullet point)
    -Electronics are sub-par. Previous owner must have swapped the goodies. Gotoh pickup in the neck, Gibson (490t? 498t?) in the bridge.
    -Unoriginal bridge pickup ring
    -Unoriginal jack plate (black)
    -Missing toggle switch tip
    -Missing toggle cover
    -Bridge was swapped for a Nashville type
    -Not sure if the white cavity covers are original
    -Some scratches on the bottom back area
    -Tiny ding (not through the finish) on the top near the tail piece
    -Sticker affixed to back of headstock from the previous setup. The previous owner stated that the setup was 50,000yen (a little less than $500), and the sticker allows the guitar to receive free basic services from the same shop. Obviously the sticker is rather useless unless you go back to Osaka! I am leaving it on in case the guitar finds it way back there.

    The Good:
    -Brazilian rosewood fretboard, Honduran mahogany, solid quilted maple top, pure nitro finish, fret edge binding (specs have been verified via email from Kurosawa, the shop that ordered these fine guitars)
    -Very light weight. At least compared to my Argus. I haven't weighed it yet but the previous owner said it weighs 3.7kg / 8.2 pounds.
    -Just look at it!
    -Original hardshell case is included (quite nice)

    Other Details:
    -Very low action
    -Rather thin neck; closer to '60 than '59

    Asking $2300. Will consider partial trades for an interesting MIJ stratocaster / ES-335.

    I'm probably moving this summer so a few things will have to go starting off with this 1981 Greco SE-450 in excellent condition. $400 US + shipping from Canada to where you are.
    3-piece body, all-original parts. I just added a bit of ground wire to the short ground wire. It has a couple of light body scratches and one dent on the front (rear upper bout) that has been filled in. Weighs in right around 8 lbs.
    Comes with the three allen keys and an extra spring.
    I'm planning to ship with the neck detached to minimize shipping costs.
    Paypal or Interac transfer works for me.


    Photos here
    Cheers!

    1980 Tokai LS80 GT
    DSC00989s.jpg

    Very nice Tokai LS80 gold top I'm looking to find a new home for.

    Looks to be all original, so even all the hardware is correct and with a consistent vintage patina. It's an unmolested, original guitar. Of course there are some dings and scratches which you can see in the pictures.

    The only part (besides strings) I replaced was the plastic knob on the pickup selector. The one on it was stripped.

    Comes with the original pickup covers which screw in place on the Gotoh PAF's, if you don't prefer covers over zebras or just want to change them with the seasons.

    Plays great, no buzzing.
    Guitar is in the U.S.

    $1,850 USD + shipping and includes the hard case in the pictures. Listing it here before I put it on Reverb.

    Many detailed pics here:

    Fresher Straighter from late 1970s or early 80s. It's in pretty good shape except for some concentric scratches from someone screwing in the trem bar. Perhaps they had some Liberace style rings on. I don't know, but this thing plays well and sounds even better. Don't know what the pickups are, but they have staggered pole pieces and they sound great. 3 way switch. Looks like someone put on brass saddles. $385 shipped to continental US. I am in RI.

    Interesting guitar - LP800C is 84 or 85 Lord Player. Highest grade model Yamaha made in a custom. Pickups are Spinex (DRY Z of Yamahas), coil tap which are usually push/push tone pot to go to single coil. To date these guitars you need to look at the code stamped on the back of the pickup.

    Lord Player is the more desirable of the Yamaha Les Paul copies. Headstock much closer to G than the Studio Lord model which came before the Lord Player. That model does come with an ebony fretboard.

    i gave up ICE vehicles for an EV last year, so no transmission or exhaust. it's faster than any of my old classic lead sleds though so who cares what it runs on?
