I'm looking for something nice from 77, the problem being that most stuff from that period is not the greatest, particularly from the USA, hence I'm asking for help rather than just buying the first 77 strat I see. I'm not really interested in another strat at all but I am interested in Fenders, Gibsons and Rickenbackers but also interested in nice Japanese guitars such as Yamahas. Only requirement is that it has to be nice looking and in all original condition, including original case. Ideal choice would be a nice Tele Custom or Deluxe or a LP Custom or Artisan.
Can be guitar or bass, solid or semi-solid. Anything out there??
