Norma Split Coil Electric in Reno for $160

This Norma is a cross between a Burns and a Teisco Spectrum 5 (as played by Mark Knopfler on several of his Studio recordings).  The split coil pickups are very cool sounding and check out that selector switch - not only can you choose between neck and bridge pickups but you can use half the neck pickup on the top 3 strings and half the bridge on the bottom strings - and vice versa.  Talk about tonal variation! Ya gotta love Japanese ingenuity.

The neck on this guitar should have the "N" fret marker inlays - it was Norma's top of the line neck and these guitars are known for their nice playability.  The downside on these is that the switches do at times go bad.

I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


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.
