What a great deal. Look at the grain on the spruce, it is beautiful.gwbasley said:My favorite little 1961 Guild F-20, Paid $100 on CL ad, spent another $100 at the Luthier's shop getting braces reglued and $30 for a used hard case. Total = $230.
That Yamaha is a terrific guitar that was under appreciated for a long time. Try finding one for sale now. You have the bases covered with that array. You're knee deep in tradition with the sunburst strat and a gold top LP. Nice!rhythmace said:
That guitar is insane!...I don't think I've seen so many knobs, switches and devices. How does that wah-wah work?... it looks like a palm pedal of sorts.More weird - It's What's Happening, VOX! That triangle thingee below the bridge is a Wah Wah. Really. Also has a Repeater, Distortion and an E-tuner. It features "ferrus" pick-ups.
You guessed it, it's normally activated by the palm. The guitar worked well - within its spec anyway - when new. The electronics are 60's, so less reliable than those of today. The action is pretty good and the tone is so-so. It eats batteries like candy. Not a practical guitar for gigging if you want all the gizzmos to function. I have two, the second is for parts. I love odd-ball guitars like that Goya posted earlier. The pickups in that are split so you can choose any combination. It has lots of switches like those found on accordions.gwbasley said:That guitar is insane!...I don't think I've seen so many knobs, switches and devices.
