Rare Robin Artisan For Sale...Sold!

19 posts in this topic

I'm selling one of the estimated 125 Robin Artisan guitars built. It's #72. Excellent condition and beautiful Iced Tea flame top. The truss rod cover is non-original as is the case. One ding on the neck as pictured. It happened in transit to me. You don't see these for sale very often. Sold. Thanks.

Wow! Never played A Robin, but know the rep. What's the neck profile like?

The neck is like a flatter "C" shape. Radius is also pretty flat. If you've ever played an Ibanez Artist from the Seventies or the Eighties, it reminds me of those.

Neck is very similar to a '60 Historic Les Paul. It's a fairly flat radius and reminds me of the Ibanez Artist guitars I've played. The weight is quite light. Right at eight pounds I'd estimate. I don't have a scale. I've owned three of these and they were all a great weight. Hope this helps.

Even in the "wrong" scale length - for me - I really wish I could...

I saw Billy Gibbons buying one at Rocking Robin; I think it was a japanese prototype before they opened thier shop in houston. I had played it, cool guitar for a few hundred but the neck didn't suit me.

The first 1K takes it.

I think my favorite thing about this axe is the elevated pickguard... What a cool hybrid of 'Paul and SG styling! If I could play 24-3/4" scale more comfortably, my wallet would be trembling...
