A1974 Rickenbacker 480/483 with some “light” modifications


This 1970 Micro Frets Golden Comet is a good case of “find another”


The older a guitar you have, the more likely you are selling a story as much as a chunk of wood. Part of the fascination with buying vintage guitars comes from where they might have been, who might have played them, and how they made it through the decades of playing and into your hands. Nothing is cooler than seeing photos of an original-owner guitar up on the bandstand with their old workhorse back in the day, and this kind of documentation can paint a vivid (and persuasive) picture in a buyer’s mind. At the end of the day, the more you know, the more power you have!
