    Stay away from the bolt on neck Special they aren't very good and don't have the Goldtone pickups.

        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...


        Haha, good call.

        I loves me my Jet Star!

        This here is my Ruby:



        They really are neat guitars. Mine is definitely in the "keep" pile. I have had a couple other GoldTone equipped M-series DeArmond guitars, but they sounded so similar to the Jet Star, yet looked more like LP's, that when I got a couple Gibson LP's I sold the M-series ones as being kinda redundant.

        I have many happy memories with Ruby! Always gets looks and compliments with that unusual shape.





        Although mine is not for sale, the lead singer in my side band has one that's just like mine, here is one of the rare times he gigged it:



        If the OP is interested, he would probably sell this for $350, and iirc it has a hsc (but don't quote me on that as I'm not 100% sure). I talked to him about it, since he'd been saying he needs to sell some guitars he doesn't play (he has since settled on a Ric 620 as his main guitar and always gigs that one to the exclusion of others). He will have to figure out what he's done with it though, as it's been so long since he's played it he's not sure if it's at home, his store, or at church.

            Sure, no worries. Hopefully we can work out a win-win for everybody. It's a shame that his hasn't been played for so long he's not even sure where it is!

            That ain't right.

            All this talk of Jet Stars has me thinking I need to use mine at my show on this Thursday.

              A band we played a few shows with, The Planet The, played these exclusively (the guitarist/singer had one of the higher-end set neck ones and one of the bolt-on ones). They were fantastic.

              Guitars:
              - Gibson Les Paul Standard '85
              - Fender MIJ '52 Esquire
              - 50s Homebuilt Tele
              - Baritone Tele

              Basses:

              - Rickenbacker 4001 '64
              - Gibson Grabber
              - Gibson G3

              Amps:
              - Marshall 1965B
              - Peavey 2x10
              - Sunn 200S

                very cool guitars. a bunch of people around here (myself included) bought them from some VH1 save the music fund raising thing where they were getting blown out for 200 bucks if I remember correctly. I ended up selling mine to fund an SG purchase but I would love to have another one if the opportunity presented itself. great sounding/feeling guitars.

                  Well, thanks to Brian, hopefully I can acquire one relatively soon. Those Dearmond S73's are mighty tempting too!

                    Guild made ****************ing cool electrics, man.

                    It's a shame they stopped.
                    Gear:

                    - Some guitars
                    - A bass
                    - Amps to accompany said guitars and bass
                    - A drum kit

                        I used to have one and traded it away.

                        It was a really nice guitar. Played great and sounded great. I'd like to get another someday.

                        Mine was blue.

                          I'd be happy to get any of the DeArmonds with the Goldtone pickups - the SG style, LP style, etc. they're all good!

                            My experience was that they tend to sound very similar as well, as you might expect. Thus I no longer own my M-72 or M-75, but have held onto the Jet Star, for it's combination of that same sound with unique looks.

                              The tone of mine is really what I miss the most. It played well and was built well, but not 'blow you away' well. The tone, though, was just awesome.

                                For a humbucker in particular, they are clear and almost glassy, really good note articulation.
