Please mention by name what you are trying to contact me about(Kay guitar,Peavey amp etc).Generic questions ie:(Hello do you still have it if so where and when can it be picked up?)are considered spam.This might be a real buyer but I won't respond.Tired of Wilford Brimly hawking diabetes remedies.

  1. I had a dual pick up version of this with a whammy bar. Same color too. Loved it,but sold it when I got my Gibson SG. I really wish I had not sold it now. R.Kelly


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.
