  1. So you can put in an auto $350 bid on any electric guitar listed as a "Hammer?"
  2. Man, I've been buried in the shop trying to catch up from being away for NAMM. Here's my Vernon (on my cell) ... and me ... and Vernon ... last week in Anaheim.
  3. The SEs that have crossed my bench have been WMI/Korea and exceptional guitars for the asking prices.
  4. I wanna add a Newport or some cool ES thingie to my stable, but I'm tripping over guitars already. So I guess my resolution includes making my one-story case rack a two-story case rack.
  5. Man, reading this thread again, how times change. I can remember going to the DFW vintage shows in the 1990s and clean unmodded or tastefully modded 70s strats were in the $400-600 range. I remember one guy one year had a booth full of them and he told me for a flat $1K I could walk with any three of my choice, with cases. Also reminded me of the Gibson Designer Series (primitive factory graphics) from the 1980s at those shows. There was a guy one year had three or four of them in a giant oversized Rubbermaid garbage can. I think he wanted like $350 or $400 for each guitar in the can w OHSC, but for a flat $1K, I could take the whole lot -- including the giant Rubbermaid garbage can. Same story as the 70s strats - getting one Designer Explorer or V for a flat grand today would be SCORE! Interesting useless trivia - Zakk Wilde's "burnt rebel flag" LP with the bottle caps stuck all over it I think began life as one of these ...
  6. Reverb.com's price guide puts current value on a '75 Strat in black at $1,800 to $2,800, but they have no site transactions history to back that up. I'd initially ask more than that, but it's something to keep in mind and prepare a retort for, in case someone refers to their pricer during the tirekicking and haggling and back-and-forth. https://reverb.com/price-guide/guide/1405
  7. Could have been a broken or frozen truss rod and the original fingerboard split or snapped when removed to get to the troubled rod's channel. Who knows. Who cares really. If you have a good slab of properly cut, properly installed and fretted, and naturally-oily rosewood, you're not being held back by its non-hoohoo country of origin.
  8. Better shot of the tuning keys ... Klusons ...
  9. From my shop's Facebook feed ... now THIS is a relic Fender ... done the old fashioned way ... PLAYED HARD
  10. Joe, is it just my eye or is the Jackson a "double dinky" ... in the truest sense? The original Dinky was created by taking 1/4 inch off the entire circumference of a strat body. That looks like they did the 1/4 to make the Dinky, then did it AGAIN to sharpen the cutaways and further downscale the body to match SS's stature. It looks smaller all over than the typical Dinky. Absolutely badass.
