Is this the one you painted black?

That's a lot of recent customization to then turn around and sell it. Aren't you going to take a pretty good loss by selling at $400? I'd at least start at $500. Really, though, unless for some reason you've decided you absolutely can't stand the guitar or need cash for a liver transplant or something, I wouldn't sell it.

If it's the guitar in your recent video, it sounded pretty good. Also, I've found that the guitars you put a lot of time and heart into customizing are the ones you always regret selling the most.

By the way, how in the world did you have binding put on a steel body guitar?

Man, you buy and sell resos faster than a pimp handles hookers at a Porn Convention in Vegas! :lol:

Actually about 30% of the Republic resos in circulation have come thru James' house at one point :).

Actually I've never sold a resolian or Republic, just everything else. So as mentioned, I got gas and nothing besides this will suffice.

Ya know... I really didn't have an opinion/care about the new Triolian until I saw this picture.
Now that damned guitar disease is rearing its ugly head. Here comes that feeling.. that same old feeling...
I'd sworn off selling (and buying) on eBay, but I can sense that feeling coming on.. damn

Yeah, me neither. I thought it was okay looking (except for the tailpiece), then I saw this and it looks really good.

For the very simple and obvious reason that original Triolians never had painted tailpieces. Neither did ANY National. Regardless of what the guitar was painted or plated with the tailpiece was ALWAYS nickel plated.

i don't think that's a good reason.the new triolian is NOT a vintage national,there's no reason to stick to vintage national specs.i am not alone in thinking the guitar would look better with a painted tailpiece.i think it would look much better painted to match the body.it sticks out like a sore thumb.
