Original 1950's Silvertone Thin Twin Jimmy Reed Guitar in Chicago for $650

These guitars are legendary because of Blues great Jimmy Reed. However, you have to play one and decide for yourself wether they are worth all the hype and frenzy. To me they are more of a collector guitar but that is just me. I like an axe with more bite and growl and punch; these are milder in output than say a Valco or Airline from the same period. That said they are considered classic collectible guitars. Keep in mind that the seller is making it clear his is not a pristine model - but it is mostly original.

1950's Silvertone Thin Twin Jimmy Reed Guitar-if you are looking here then you already know what this is on how scarce these are and how Killer Cool they sound.Fantastic Sunburst- Here are the important details:
All Original Electronics,Knobs,Tuners (replaced buttons),Tailpiece,Bridge, Pick-ups work great. Pickguard screws have been replaced as well as pick-up screws and finish washers.The input jack has a large washer on the body where there was some hole damage.This guitar has been played and has years of wear and ageing,but sounds Great for Blues,Rock or Jazz. If you are a collector and want a pristine example of this don't even bother... if you are a player and want a guitar that has plenty of Mojo and will blow minds wherever you play,then this may be the ax for you.Sorry NO TRADES,CASH &CARRY,NO LOW BALL OFFERS,TIMEWASTERS,DEADBEATS,EBAY WANNABES OR IN GENERAL IDIOTS need not reply.
