Kent 1960's Electric 12 string in mar Vista for $250

I've never actually seen one of these before - a Kent 12 string with a Gibson style adjustable bridge and stop tailpiece.  Very unusual with the Toaster style pickups.  Seller says it plays and sounds good and stays in tune with good intonation which, if true, would make it a first for Japanese electric 12 strings from this era.  There is a reason why everyone played Ric's back then - they were the only game in town.

I'd be curious to hear about this guitar if anyone checks it out.  Check out the hole in the pickguard where it looks like they "forgot" to include a pickup selector switch.  LOL. 


Vintage Electric 12 String guitar - $250 (Mar Vista)

Sounds and plays great! Rickenbacker meets Strat. Kent (Japanese) bass body, Japanese neck, toaster pickups (unknown). All electronics work peachy, intonation good, stays in tune fine. Low action, easy to play, straight neck. Put-together lovingly and played. Really a fine instrument and great price. Single coil sound all the way. Gets jangly. Each pickup has volume control so you can mix and blend as you wish. Plus tone control. Many dings and scratches. Mojo city. Super fun guitar.

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.
