  • Orpheo Guitars: Guitars Giveaway!

    Ok, I've had it with trying to sell these guitars. I'm giving them away.

    What do you have to do?

    1: Call dibs on the guitar you like in this thread!
    2: Drop me a line saying which one you want.
    3: Pay for shipping from the Netherlands to wherever you are.

    I'll ship without case or strap but with the right tools to set up the neck relief etcetera. My case pack is +EUR200, so if you want that (case, shirt, strap), add that to your mental calculation! Otherwise, it's just shipping.

    No strings attached. No hidden rules. No raffle. Just me, giving away guitars.

    Let me add one more thing before I forget.

    These are all guitars you could consider 'factory seconds'. I used them to try new techniques, new ideas and they all play and sound GREAT but are visually not 'perfect' by any means. That's why I am just giving these away.

    Edit:

    it would make my life a bit easier if you'd call 'dibs!" on a particular guitar in this thread

    Edit July 8, 2021:

    A word on shipping. I will ship as soon as I can. It will be quite a challenge to ship everything because my god, it's a lot, haha. But I'm happy to do it. I do plan on shipping everything before I leave for Mexico (July 21!). There is one snag, though, in this idea. If my Mono sleeves don't come in on time to ship, I will have to unfortunately postpone the shipping. I don't store them all here in my facilities, I store them elsewhere where it's a lot cheaper to store but that does mean I have to ship them to me first. I don't expect issues in that regard but I do find it necessary to have mentioned that for those who asked for the case pack.


    Edit July 9, 2021:

    All guitars are spoken for!

    Edit July 9, 2021:

    I corrected a typo in my initial thread. I quoted the case pack as two hundred dollars but of course, I think and pay in Euro's so I had to correct that. For those who paid already for the pack, it's fine as it is, but for those who still are about to pay, please take that into consideration. Lastly, Paypal. I am not sure why, but I pay 5.7% paypal fees. Not 3%! Perhaps because I have a business account or because some small tax fees go over it or because I have my account set up based out of Europe (Netherlands). Regardless... it's 5.7%, sorry guys!


    Edit July 20, 2021:
    OK guys, I have some good news and a bit of bad news.

    1: All guitars are given away so there is nothing left! Congratulations to ALL who got a guitar they wanted and to all who paid the shipping costs (which is a full overlapping Venn diagram by the way)!

    2: I just got all the cases, boxes, packing peanuts, packing materials etc etc in! So that is good news but also a bit bad because I don't have the time to pack up the guitars! As I mentioned in PM's as well as in the thread here and in other places, I will leave for Mexico tomorrow, to see my fiancée. I will be back by August 8. I made the foolish mistakes of thinking this giveway wouldn't go fast and if it would, I didn't think it through by lifting this over my Mexico break. So I am so sorry, you all will have to wait a little longer Prepping 8 guitars for shipment is not simple or fast (cleaning, testing if everything works, making minor repairs if something isn't working due to age, packing and boxing up the guitars and preparing the shipments). I am sorry I was so naive! I'm posting everything in plain sight here so everybody knows immediately what's going on. No secrets

    Once again, thank you all for your patience.

                              The other is another strat (HSS, magenta pink on quilted maple), a V, an Xplorer style guitar and that's it because the last one in that batch was snapped up before I even got the chance of posting it!

                              I'll tentatively put you down for #1. Can always slide back to another model.
