    Bump for a fabulous Tele.

    Oh, and feel free to lowball me on Ebay if you're a complete prat - but you will then find you're blocked on there and here...

    Lovely!

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.

    Last time you and I agreed a deal on a guitar, you pulled out two hours beforehand saying that your wife had bought you the guitar and wouldn't let you part with it.

    You then traded that same guitar a week later for a PRS. 

    So I'll pass, thanks.

    You are correct. I was in some pretty hot water at the time, and I can understand your annoyance. So I hold my hands up. I would love the chance to put things right between us, but if you feel that’s too big an ask then I respect that and wish you well.

    Thanks. But no longer looking for trades - just a sale.

    To add to this, I played all three of these just yesterday, so I hope that @Hattigol doesn't mind me chirping up.

    My favourite is his lovely dog, but that goes without saying.   3

    The Tele? It's as good as it looks, and it looks fabulous. Great neck on it as well - just a lovely guitar. It was on hold for me, as it happens, but in the interim, a couple of guitars with trems landed my way, so I didn't need the Bigsby and walked off with another Tele. Otherwise, that would be  one that would have come back with me.

    The Gretsch is one that I was very interested in when @Caffeine_Vampire sold it, as he will no doubt testify(!) and I was very interested to see it yesterday. I've had lots of ProLine Gretsches and with very few exceptions, the necks have jarred with me for some reason. Not this one, it felt rolled and worn in, much like myself. Time was a little tight, and so was money, so I came away without it, but am still interested in it. A really easy player, with a comfortable body size and scale length. We shall talk more.

    Slight story behind the ES_275 - @Hattigol showed me pics of this when he was buying it, and I flew into a fit of jealousy, searched for one online, found one the same day, which involved a 360 mile round trip on a Bank Holiday and bought one. So it's his fault that I've got no money to buy this one, because I would have. This one's the thinline version - I'd not seen one before and when they were announced, I was a bit dubious as the 'normal' version isn't much deeper than a 335 really. However, the difference is subtle, and the thinline depth suits it very much, I thought. It's beautifully set up, with a great action (as have the other two) and the neck is fabulous - it feels 'vintage' and played in, sort of how you'd expect a Fender CS neck to feel, I thought. A lovely guitar, and it looks stunning. Another one that I'd have come away with if @Hattigol hadn't made me buy one in the first place.

    The enabler.  pensive 

    Honestly though, all of them are guitars that I'd have really liked to spirit away with me and if it wasn't for the presence of that ferocious guard dog who was clearly lulling me into a false sense of security by rolling over for a tummy tickle, well, who knows?





    My girl, she don't stand no cheating
    Cos she's a sheep and just stands there bleating

    I was going to tag you @DB1 due to the 275 but it now seems a moot point :)

    Cheers @ DB1 - always a pleasure to meet someone with even more bonkers GAS levels than me!

    I've had two PMs asking if I will post the guitars. I'm happy to box them up securely at my end but the buyer would need to organise the courier and accept any risks arising from damage in transit.

    If you're ok with that, then yes. Alternatively, I don't mind driving an hour or so from Harrogate to meet.

    @MrSwanson I haven't taken any pics of the pedals yet - will try and do so tonight. They are all pretty much as new though.
