  • New Traded Guitar Day!!!

    So I walked into the local pawn shop Monday, expecting the usual supply of typical Squiers, Epiphones, and other crap, and was pleasantly surprised to see a 1979 Peavey T-40 bass sitting there. I have NO need for another bass, but I had to check it out. All original, no damage, nothing really wrong with it that a minor setup couldn't fix.... AND a case. Hmmm how much I wondered. then I saw the price, and it came home with me. (150 out the door!)

    ​Tuesday, I go down south to my favorite vintage shop with the bass and two other guitars I like, but never really play. a 94 Ibanez Talman 630, and a 73 Univox Gimme. And after a while of playing, chatting, playing some more, some hair pulling, a bit more playing, a few minutes of, "Come on, I KNOW you didn't pay that for this!" "Oh, how do YOU know what I paid?" "Because of what you are offering for them...." I finally walked out the door with this.....

    ​A1984 Ibanez Artist AR100CS.
    ​All original, 1 piece mahogany back, 2 piece flame maple top, (NOT veneer) 3 piece maple neck, Brazilian rosewood board, original Super 58 pickups with the push/push coil taps, AND a new sparkling hardshell case! Best trade ever? Financially, no, not really, it was fairish. A trade to keep, and enjoy for a LONG time? Oh hell yea!

    ​It's heavy. I mean it's HEAVY. Like 11 lbs of soulful sustain and tone heavy. You can easily strum a chord, smoke a cig, have a cup of coffee, wait for the drummer to finish his solo, and it's till ringing. The Super 58's are a bit brighter then the V2's in the original 81 I have, and the bridge and tuners are a different design. I normally won't own 2 of the same model guitars, but it's different enough to be in a league of it's own.

        No Epi there, the SG looking thing is a 1972/3 Electra 2259, made by Terada for Mattsumoku

          Played one of the AR100's back in the late 80's thru mid 90's, Horse traded it for a 90 SG custom, Worst trade I ever made. Still kick myself over that one,

            I like it. even though the stop bar and that little triangle decoration ae a bit too fancy for my taste. Overall the style is well proportioned and it just begs to be played.loud,really loud.
            once again you've got a good eye

              OK BP , may I then ask , what is the thing with the "frequensator" style tail piece thing ? Cool guitars with that thing on there , in my humble opinion

                That, my friend, is a 2015 D'Angelico EXL-SH1 that I picked up off of feebay for 130 shipped to the door. I had all the pieces sitting in my parts drawer. It had a SERIOUS headstock break that the repair work was done, but not the pretty work. I am slowly doing the pretty on it. it has Duncan Jazz in the neck, but I may replace it with a Shadow.
