Re: Tracking down a Belew

The listing lasted about 28 hours before selling after two offers. I *think* it was the first one listed since this tangerine Belew sold for $7620 in 2018. I’m feeling pretty thrifty for not spending $9,000 today. I got as far as choosing which of my guitars I was going to list tomorrow (and started...

Re: Tracking down a Belew

Considering he’s playing gigs north and south of me with none in my town, I’m sure he and his van of band mates would stop by on their way through and play kazoos for far less than the cost of that guitar. I could probably sweeten the deal with a Fripp dartboard, too.

Re: Adrian Belew available

I keep telling myself that lime gold has always been my least favorite Belew finish, that I already have four Flys with 13 pin-outs (two with sustainiacs) to scratch that itch, that I didn’t just sell my Variax 2.0 to buy a 1.0 in a Fly body, that I’d rather still have the guitars I’d need to sell t...

Re: Adrian Belew available

Oof. If only I hadn’t gotten that Aristides two weeks ago, I’d have already bought the thing and swore to pay myself back, later. As it is, I got to the checkout screen, saw the final price, and looked around at all the guitars I’d have to sell in the next month or two just to try out the Belew. I’l...

Re: First Parker!

Yours seems to be a DF422FR. The 522 had a pair of EMGs, and the 524 had HSS Duncan pickups. Granted, the model naming conventions don't make sense to me, either.

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

It seems the $6,500 ’99 Artist posted on the previous page sold after two offers. I wonder if it dipped below $5k, how soon we’ll be seeing it again, and if the next Artist listed in worse condition will have a higher starting price. I do see a fair amount of Flys/NFs listed at what I consider to be...

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

Musikron , crack would make for a sweet deal (the guitar could be had for $9,804 through Reverb Payments, or five bucks in person). But I’m afraid this one is old-fashioned cynicism: Listing for the highest price, “for a limited time only”, maximizes the free advertising for wherever it is off of R...

Re: Could Parker guitars return?

Ah. If it’s this or anything like it, I dig it. Shame about techs being afraid to work on it - Perhaps if you give them the choice between working on the Taos or the Fly, you can frighten them into doing what you want.

Re: Could Parker guitars return?

NailCommunication , I must admit you now have me curious as to what your Taos looks like. I would agree that some of the Flys produced are specimens worthy of inclusion amongst the "best" electric guitars ever built - But then again, I haven't had the opportunity to play a Sankey, Bill De...

Either that or buy two Flys for the price of the flan-colored one.

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

Looks like the refined Butterscotch Deluxe eBay auction is going to end without a single bid. Meanwhile, this red 90s Classic with GK mounting holes, vague stereo piezo issue, and accessories (including spare 9 and 10 springs) can probably be shipped from Alaska to your home for around $2k, if you m...

Re: Could Parker guitars return?

Have you ever played a Manne Guitar? I’m afraid it’s been too long since I was last near one to recall what my impressions were - They always seemed like high-end boutique guitars with a lot of fit-and-finish labor, rather than a brand emphasizing or showcasing new technology. I became aware of Man...

Roy Smith's Rig From Hell

It completely slipped my mind to post this when Roy uploaded it last year. What can I say, other than "Roy is THE MAN."

Re: Could Parker guitars return?

Bump. Added photos to the earlier post. Though I received the H/06 on the 28th, I’ve had no time to set aside for the thing until today (I still need to set it up for 10s and spend time comparing it to my other guitars). The 25-26.1” fan of the Aristides’ scale lengths will take some getting used to...

Re: “What’s This Worth?” Thread

Perhaps if I keep tempting you, you’ll resort to selling me one of yours on the gentleman’s agreement that you can buy it back later (at which point I’ll absolutely ruin it with mods until you no longer want it). :twisted:
