Peavey Mantis 80's vintage electric in Chicago for $300

Okay it had to happen - I am listing a Peavey guitar.  I have alot of repsect for Hartley Peavey and I think he doesn't get enough kudos for building real guitars and amps right here in the Good Ole' USA (Mississippi!). 

Peavey guitars aren't really collected much at this point - but check out this Mantis.  Talk about "pointy guitars."   These are certainly rare - be the first on your block.  Just remember... "I told them a hundred times.. Spinal Tap first - then Puppet Show!"

1980's Peavey Mantis LT Guitar Made in the USA. It comes with original case and features a Kahler Flyer Tremolo. Peavey made the Mantis along with the Mystic and Razer back in the 80's. Great piece of 1980's vintage guitar bringing back that era of Charvel and Kramer.

Location: Chicago

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
