Say it ain't so..........but my name isn't Joe.
Run out of money?
Lost the Mojo?
If it's money a liquidation sale may help..............
Im done selling guitars.Only lost money,and replaced them later anyway.
I say that and then like clockwork another beauty falls in my lap. I stopped looking years ago but they still find me.
Just last week a buddy of mine called and needed to fire sell one that I had to have. Neck through ESP strat style monster, mint, with case for $600. I really didn't need it but damn it I had to make sure it went to a good home. Lol.
I see 1 of four possibilities
He is very very happy with his White falcon
He is upset about his white falcon
He became a male escort and has a rich girl buying all his guitars for him
His wife logged onto his account and posted this
The Gretsch White Falcon is THE bucket list.
Maybe a White Penguin?
As of now, the # is at 106 guitars.
Maybe trade off some but that's a maybe.
How about satisfied?
106 guitars ? Damn, I thought I had problem with hoarding. Lol. Well Axe, 106 guitars is a terrible problem to have. I feel bad for you, so bad I want to come over and hang out.
Since you have enough for all of us, we'll all see you on New Year's eve, say around 7 ?
Im probably done buying guitars .......but not guitar parts (which end up as .....more guitars)
If I were a better gear flipper ,I might buy more ,but Ive never been a flipper . I buy em to play ! But Id like to know I have a future still playin em before I buy anymore
People are fckn snooty n weird ,even here. Ive pretty much only ever bought used guitars .People are strange about only buying new sh*t....unless it "vintage" . News Flash ...vintage guitars are USED. Didn't used to be that way though
Yeah, I was never turned off on buying/trading for used.
It used to be old and used and never the word vintage was used.
I love the current Supro line.
I have a new Sahara & Hampton.
Love Gretsch too.
Almost as much as Gibson ES 335's.
If I have my way, I prefer used.
Better price and the DNA of another picker.
Someone has loved the instrument and is passing it on to another caring lover.
Sounds goofy but I'm a believer.
Well if people didn't buy new guitars there wouldn't be any used ones to be had. Just another angle on it all.
Now you know the F holes are not for..... well, you know...
Y'know, if you wanted to sell off one of the Ibby doublenecks you would have 105 and room for one more, like a Penguin...
Man...I dunno about the DNA part .....ewwwwwwww
But the rest of the mojo part , yeah .
I buy guitars with a "story" ...or other peoples' rejects
Guitars that have been given up on . It's like rescue dogs, even the "good" guitars
I developed a "bad" habit as a kid . I would a new (new to me) guitar home ,and take it down , to every screw ...usually cleaning off all the .......DNA
I got an actual NEW guitar for my HS graduation ...it took it apart too ,although I guess the only DNA on it was from the people that built it in Orange County ....
The DNA was meant to be the previous owners touch.
Was in the market for a new LP Standard and went the 2nd hand route instead. Ended up with this 2005 Standard:
How is the 335 to play? I was looking at the new epi ones online and they seem kick ass, I'm 6 foot 5 and probably down to 270 odd maybe ( not all of it is stomach) or 196 cm and 125 odd kg in the better system, so not too worried of weight, just the shape.
I have an ibanez art 100 I barely touch any more cause I love the feel of my semi hollow and gretsch double jet under my arm so much more ( I'm an at home hacker so I think I've played standing up like 3 times, wasn't as big a difference as I thought)
Thinking more of the strumming arm, the neck would be different from gibson to epi I assume but the body should be fairly close
I said that 4 guitars ago...
My personal opinion, the regular production Gibsons from that era are great guitars ,very consistent.....just before Gibson started to "cheapen out" on everything .
