Just got it earlier today a used FCS 62 Mod Squad Custom Telecaster. Seafoam Green with matching headstock. Double bound body with Rosewood neck. HB in the neck. Single coil in the bridge with a Bigsby Vibrato shipped for $1870. Not bad price for a Fender Custom Shop with all the features I wanted. Just be patient the right guitar will come along.
Used SG Standard, and a good amp.
Partscaster with a wide neck.
Suhr Modern Satin. Can get them for under 2k I believe
Can you guys send me a Suhr Pete Thorn & a R7 for $2,000 or under I'll buy them both today? I'm ok with some surface scratches & light wear except the frets they need to be clean. If the guitar is clean I don't care if hardware or pickups have been changed on the LP as long as no extra holes have been drilled or any of the holes made larger. The Suhr needs to be original & anything under 9.5 lbs on the LP & 8 lbs on the Suhr.
Thanks a lot for the help I can't wait!
It REALLY depends on what you intend to play. A LP is miles away from a Suhr Modern in terms of capabilities and target
I bit the bullet a bought an Armada. Got a smokin' deal open box at $1400. It's absolutely superb, and having owned a JP6, two Axis (Axes? Axiis?), a 20th anny Silhouette, and played a Luke, this is my favorite so far. Stellar in every way I would want. Nut is a traditional width, neck is a nice '59'ish shape, sounds amazing, plays amazing...I could go on and on.
Still, it totally depends on what you intend to play.
How about an Explorer?
My nephew was a working pro for over ten years and during that time his number one was a faded Explorer. You should see it today. There's barely any finish left over large areas, but it never let him down.
If Ibanez offered an AZ2402 with a flame maple Wizard III neck, I'd buy it.
I’ve got a nice Les Paul, I’d look at Grosh Electrajets. I’ve played a few, fantastic necks, great fretwork. Super playable, great intonation on the ones I played. Some cool colors too. Sounded great, although nothing similar to a great LP.
A bit out of fashion lately so can be a steal on the used market. If I lost all my guitars and had to but ONE, that would be it.
YOU did notice I said PT OR Classic Pro, Right?
I picked a mint used Suhr Classic Pro SSH for $ 1340 about 3 weeks ago, so the deals are out there.
It stands to reason that someone could be in a bind and have to unload a Suhr PT for around $2k with how soft the market is.
I don't think you read my post very well.
You did notice I said USED?
Learn to read properly before you post your smart @$$ remarks.
Some kind of Rickenbacker in Midnight Blue would be awesome.
A 90s Les Paul Standard, preferably from 1990 to 1998, all good years. If you like skinny necks and more "vintage" aehsthetics, a LP Classic from those years is also a great choice.
PS: if you want something more in the strat camp and you're not afraid of modern, an EBMM Luke III with Dimarzio Transition pickups kills.
No question in my mind; I'd buy this: https://reverb.com/item/6221904-dark-walnut-pinecaster-w-throbaks-glendale-and-musikraft-neck
Patrick James Eggle ‘96
Thorn Custom Guitars (one on sale in the Emporium for $2100 right now)
Suhr Modern or Alt Pro.
PRS DGT or Custom 22/24.
I have been gassing for a Gretsch malcolm young or a Rickenbacker...or a used USA Guild Starfire V
Yeah man I read & understood it you're 100% right on the Classic Pro HSS. Congrats on getting a clean one for $1,350 that's a hell of a deal I would have jumped on that.
I've never seen a PT for under $2,700 let alone near $2,000 but you're right maybe if someone is persistent & very patient , a big maybe.
You're also right on the market it's harder than hell for me to sell any hi end guitars in the past year. Funny I wanted a LP Classic & ran a thread here on pricing , everyone was in the $1,500-$1,600 range for a clean one & I agree with that. Then you see people listing them even on here in the $1,800-$2,000 range so there you go.
Sorry for the comment I just really want a Gold PT near $2,000.
