Yamaha SGV-800 in Los Angeles area for $300

This seller is offering one of the Yamaha SGV Reissue guitars that are prized by Surf players for their cool retro shape and nice clean Surf tones.  You don't see these for sale very often because few USA dealers carry the entire line of Yamaha electric guitars.  This one is in the cool "blue sparkle" which looks nice.

Yamaha has made several knockoffs and lower end versions of this guitar shape - the SGV-800 is one of the nicer ones - it has P-90 style pickups, a high quality Vibrato and locking tuners.

1963 Teisco ET-300 with 3 Gold Foils in South Jersey for $300

This seller is offering a 50+ year old Teisco ET-300 that is in very nice upgraded playable condition.  This seller clearly knows his vintage Japanese guitars and appreciates the pickups in this one.  This model has three of the "good" gold foils which are the ones with the screw holes on the side.  These are the original versions with the real magnets not the magnetized rubber (which still sound good just not as good as these).

This particular ET-300 has all the most desirable early Teisco details like the beefy neck with side fret markers. It appears to be in beautiful condition.

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.
