      Thread reminds me I almost bought a really sweet DeArmond Starfire for cheap and didn't.

        Yes and yes. Strange, I shouldn't like it, but I do.

          He's got a Polara (SG copy) up for $280...

              Bowling ball finish + bigsby. Non-starter for me.

              This. But it's a beautiful guitar. For someone else.

                I love the finish on that.

                Whether it's worth $480, I have no idea...but the price certainly isn't outrageous.

                Provided it played well, sounded good, and didn't have any serious issues waiting in the wings? I'd give it a go.

                    I liket. Looks perdy cool.

                      I like all set neck DeArmonds, and I don't think it's worth $480, they went for $300 or so when they were being closed out. The pickups are excellent. I don't like Bigsbys but obviously that won't be an issue for anyone considering buying this.

                        yes and yes. bigtime.
                        It's hard to face the truth, but I suppose you yourself realize that if you'd had just a little more courage, just a little more strength of character, you could have been dead by now. No such luck.--P. J. O'Rourke--

                          I like 'em. I play a DeArmond Starfire Special, and I nearly bought an M75T when they were being blown out. I'd like one in the champagne finish.

                          In this finish, yes, yes. Although I'd prefer getting the Starfire Special over the M75T.

                            I dig the blue. Price should be around $350.

                              no, yes.

                                Totally awesome, I love sparkle/metalflakes.

                                I'm just such a damn stickler when it comes to cheapo outs like that terrible plastic inlay and the like.

                                I wish some import manufacturer would understand that there are lots of folks into the rockabilly/weird guitars who want nicer details like ebony and real pearl. They'd kill, but they don't seem to want to do it.
