  • Dearmond Jetstar?

    Does anyone have experience with these? I saw some pics the other day, and even though I know I needed to curtail my guitar related spending, it revved up my GAS levels to an all time painful high! I really want a red set neck one with Goldtones in it. Does anyone have experience with these? If you got pics of them, I'd definitely love it.

    Even better, if you have one to sell, I'll possibly buy it from you or trade for it. I've got a Tokai Love Rock ('59 style with a BG PUF in the bridge), a modded Epi G-400 (Alpine White with BG Buckers, allparts Maestro and Gotoh Vintage locking tuners) and a Jay Turser Hawk 12 electric (sort of a rick' style guitar, but much wider neck.)

    they are very nice and rare guitars, especially if they have the goldtone pickups! grab it! Brian Krashpad has one so you'll probably hear from him...

      I have a moon blue one the neck are like a 50's LP and the Goltone pickups sound like firebird mini humbucker.

        Where were you about a month ago? I had a red Jetstar w/Goldtones, set neck and OSCH listed here on HC for sale or trade. No bites. I was asking $350. I finally traded local for an Epi Sheraton.
        It was a very good sounding guitar but a little heavy.

          FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.

          I didn't know how much they were going for, but that's WAY less than I thought. I would have bought that outright.

          What were your thoughts on the guitar? Quality? Good tone? Any old pics?

          To be honest my guitar-lust changes subjects fairly frequently. One week it's a Gibson SG Standard, then a '61 reissue, then a Kay Jazz II reissue now a Dearmond Jetstar. It's a curse.

            I dig DeArmond's. I don't have a Jetstar but do have a X155. The Goldtone pickups sound heavenly.

              The one that got away.
              Good quality build. Korean. Possibly Samick, I don't know for sure. Pups were American made and sounded quite good. Think bright PAF.

                  The original Guild Thunderbird, on which the DeA Jetstar was modeled, was even cooler...

                    Holy crap! A built in guitar stand? That's crazy cool.

                      Had one, sold it when I bought my first Les Paul, thinking that I didn't need another humbucker guitar, realized that I missed it and bought another one. Like others, I really like the GoldTone pickups. I also like the "Gumby on acid" shape, although many don't.

                        The stand in the back is why most of them had broken Headstocks.

                            Awesome stuff guys! I was definitely aware of the Guild Thunderbird, not big on the original Guild Jetstar though.

                            I want that Dearmond Jetstar SO BAD! SO MUCH G.A.S.!

                              I seriously... seriously... SERIOUSLY want one of these. I've scoured the internet, this forum, other forums, countless craigslist sites all over the country and nary a Jetstar is to be had.

                              If someone out there makes a suggestion, provides a link, knows a person selling one, etc. that directly leads me to owning one of these Jetstars (in excellent condition), I will be FOREVER grateful. I'm even toying with a $20 Paypal reward to the person who directly is responsible for me owning one of these. (Limit 1, I'm not made of money you know...)
