Funny thing , there are guys who wouldn't touch such guitars ....probably readin' this thread
That '73 Deluxe has been up on Craig's around here for a couple weeks ....nobody'd touch it ...granted the seller was quite erratic with his pricing / understanding of what he COULD get ..
But I went n got it , spent a couple hours of disinfection and setup ....the darn thing just SCREAMS . I'll take a used guitar everytime
I've had this one since about 1985...when few people cared about these old things.
It was pretty beat up when I got it, but it's seen hundreds of gigs...including last weekend...reconed P12R...sounds freakin' killer. Just amazing.
