I gotta have one !!!

Postby grady » Wed Dec 24, 2008 5:45 pm

The one guitar I regret selling, a 50's Harmony Archtop with DeArmond pickup.
I'll never find another one in as good a condition as the one I had but, I just found out about these,

Just cleared it with the Wife. When we get our Tax refund, I'm ordering one.

That is a real beauty there Grady!

I was somewhat fuddled when the first page mentioned and showed the pickup and knobs, but then going further it was strictly acoustic. :blink: Am I mssing something?

Yup, I'm wicha on that one Grady! I'd sleep with that on the first date. What a beaut! It takes me back to the first blues I played in high school, with a buddy playin' a Mexican archtop with a DeAarmond soundhole pickup. If ya' can't find the groove in that mojo then yer ready to play post-punk.

Actually, the more I look, the more I want one...and I'm usually GAS proof.

But this years money is wrapped up in technical solutions for my online broadcasts, and getting my Gibson repaired.

Not bad - $519-$699, depending upon whether you want it with the P-90 pickup or without...
At $519 shipped (sans pickup), that's an incredible bargain.
