    I ran across this on CL. It's a D'Armond MT 77 with Bigsby. The seller said it was not in working condition and offered me a very good price. Turns out one of the wires on the jack had become unsoldered. Fixed it in all of 5 minutes. I love it! What a find!

    Those are really great guitars...I had a burst M-75T I bought GC closeout for $299 new...played the wheels off of it for 4 or 5 years and then sold it for more than I paid!

    Cool score for sure.

    I got hosed on my last CL deal. I bought a Kirk Hammett signature, it came unstrung and I made the exchange in a parking lot. Turns out the neck is quite warped, I'm certainly going to lose money on this deal.

    That's awesome though dude, I have a De Armond M-75 myself and it's an awesome guitar, but I'm jealous of yours with the single coils and the bigsby. SWEEEET.

    I'd say I'm about 50/50 on CL deals. I've had awesome deals (Peavey USA Fury bass for $40 - it's been my number one ever since) and not so awesome deals (Marshall DSL401 that I sunk $200 bucks into fixing and then sold for $100 less than I paid for it...) It's all about the game.

    It's red isn't it?

    Not Gretsch orange.

    I have a similar DeArmond in my collection but it's a holler body.
