Current Vintage Guitar Deals at GC in thier Used Gear Dept

I've bought several vintage guitars from Guitar Center over the years and it is usually a very good transaction.  The nice part is they box well and ship for cheap (usually about $25) and they will take a return if the guitar turns out to have an undisclosed problem.  That said, it is still Caveat Emptor - "Let the Buyer Beware."   Here is a list of some current Vintage Guitar finds at GC that won't be making it into their "Vintage Room" LOL.   Just call the individual Guitar Center location and talk to a staff member to find out more about these specific guitars.

********************************** 

KENT POLARIS at GC in Dayton OH for $149



This Polaris has a few things going for it, one being the less common cream finish (they are usually sunburst) and this one has a Vibrato tailpiece with the original vibrato arm in place (very unusual). 

NATIONAL MIJ Acoustic w/ DeArmond Pickup at GC in Richmond VA for $249

I can speak for the quality or sound of these late's 60's Made in Japan National Acoustics (though this one looks like a pretty fancy model) but the DeArmond pickup in the soundhole of this one is almost worth the price of admission (if it works).






SUPRO STUDENT DELUXE LAP STEEL at GC in SCRANTON PA FOR $249

This Supro Student Deluxe lappie looks alot like my old Supro Comet and it has the same "string thru" pickup that sounds keeelah for dirty blues.




HARMONY H6164 SOVEREIGN ACOUSTIC AT GC in DALLAS TX for $279

Okay, so it isn't an H1264 (Ryan Adams) model but this Sovereign still looks sweet (unless the action is a mile high).  Worth taking a look since this one is the earlier "bound neck" version and should sound good.

  1. I've played that Harmony Sovereign at the central Dallas GC. While it has a great sound, it needs a neck reset, tuners and a fret job (crown and polish) to really make it a daily player. Again, it sounds awesome, but has issues a typical Harmony has to make it fully playable.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL READERS

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.
