This arrived this morning from a nice chap in Ireland. I had paid for the case to be shipped to him and then he shipped the guitar to me in the case. All in, it cost me £750 ($960) which felt like a lot at the time but now I've had a chance to play it is an absolute steal.
I've owned a vintage...
Ok this is technically not a Single Cut but it arrived yesterday from Japan, with a great deal of help from a member here - thanks again :)
I was a bit worried because it sat in customs for 8 days and given that it is made out of what is certainly Brazilian rosewood (jacaranda) I thought they...
This is my first ever vintage purchase and I have definitely caught the bug. Prices are a bit all over the place at the moment but I am happy with what I paid. The guitar is completely original with no breaks but has had a refret at some point.
Nice and lightweight at 6lbs 11oz, great '59...
Thinking of selling this one, based the in the UK.
These were all painted in a dirty lemon and are quite lightweight - this one is 8lbs on the nose.
Just wondering what you gents thought was a decent price. Case candy and framed certificate all in tow, including the white gloves ;)
There isn't much on these out there... seems like a 50 guitar run done specifically for the Japanese market, top selected by Edwin Wilson and burst sprayed by Tom Murphy, no ageing. These all seem to be in Lemon/Green with a slightly faded cherry back finish and are all super lightweight...
Have a nice tax rebate burning a hole... anyone got a spare CR8 or CR9 they would be willing to part with? No real budget set, just want to see what's out there.
PM me or reply here and we'll talk.
Following some repairs to my car (and a few choice words to the idiot that pranged me) I need to free up a little cash and as such this is on the block. Only had it a few weeks and it will already be sorely missed but my loss is your gain.
1957 Les Paul Junior (vintage Gibson)...
As per title, just found something else that takes my fancy and they need a new home. Pics at the bottom of the page.
Located in EU/UK
$425 plus waiting time on the website
Or grab mine for £230 / $350 (shipping on top)
As per title... I'm in the UK and am very interested in getting my hands on some old wood ;)
Interested in '55-'60 Juniors, any finish and both single and double cuts.
Light weight and player grade are bonuses. Don't mind breaks or repairs either.
Just keen to see what's out there and on...
Had this for a while now, seems to be settling in quite nicely.
As per title, ebony-boarded, refretted 1979 Tokai LC-100. Board is stamped but very faint, possibly worn down during the refret.
This thing has been played really hard... loads of dings and dongs, a break in the topcoat shows a...
Let's use this as a general catch-all thread, but keep it somewhat relevant to MIJ/Other Single-Cuts so the mods don't get trigger happy :)
When I got my Tokai LS-100, some preious owner had tried to file down the first 2 frets with a metal file.. left huge ridges that buzzed on fretting. So...
I've been lucky enough to get on the wait-list of a reputable builder recently, so I've spent my off-day going through the burst serial log website, looking for tops that I would want to have on my replica, even if it is 3 years away :thumb:
I've eyeballed 708 guitars today and I figure I'd...
I've been enjoying my 79 LS100 "59" sized neck for a few months now without issue.
After getting my MJT 1-inch thick neck (1st to 12th fret) in the post last week, it felt absolutely HUGE in my hands at first, but I have since gotten very used to it and it doesn't feel noticeably big any...
Anyone in the EU/UK with an extra on their hands?
Happy to have shipped from the US if you are :)
Sunburst, TV yellow, single or double cut.... interested in all!
Got cash burning a hole in my pocket
Just sold my Old Sunburst 1979 Tokai LS-80 Reborn to a nice chap from London who arrived on the train. I am sure it is going to a good home, but it will surely be missed. This thread is dedicated to pictures and anecdotes of "ones that got away," regrettable sales, or just guitars that you miss.
