    is that the period correct control cavity plate

    it looks awfully good for a 30+ year old guitar

    I'd be suspect

    And it only fetches 4k if it is ALL original. 57 classics = FAIL.

    You don't get that to play it.

    It's funny to me that the whole "vintage" market started in the 70's because 70's Gibsons (the Norlin-era) and Fenders (the CBS-era) were so hit or miss in terms of quality and not the equal of those from the 50's and early 60's. And now those 70's guitars are being tagged as "vintage" just because they're now old. But the lack of quality and attention to detail, not to mention the heavy weight of many, remains.

    It's really pretty, but for the same money I could buy a couple nice guitars.

    Very pretty. But IMO still not worth that kind of money.

    A couple? $800 buys a helluva guitar today. Try 5 nice guitars! A new Jackson Pro, A new Charvel, A new Fender, plus a Marshall DSL 40, and a bunch of pedals.

    It's a pretty top. 4500$ is a lot of money though.

    I'm surprised you didn't mention Dean.

    Yeah, those are nice guitars, but that one is at least $2500 too expensive. And you can only sell it for $2000 to someone looking to complete a collection. While pretty, and they sound great, there was nothing really special about the sound.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Nice...boat anchors. I own 50ies, 60ies, 80ies, 90ies and 00ies guitars, but my only 70ies guitar is an ES, go figure.

    25th Anniversary?

    When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.
