I have always had a soft spot for offsets and managed finally to get a year of birth Jag!

1965, all orginal, all case candy, swing tags, mute the work.

6lb 11ozs, neck is as straight as a die, frets all original. SOunds like a jangley thing!!

I am utterly astonished how resonant it is acoustically. I may fit a mastery just for practicality.

More to come later, with clips.

£2750!!

Cool guitar, but it looks beat to hell. You might have paid quite a bit more than it is actually worth (because of condition).

Yes I'm serious, but the market in the USA is quite different for vintage guitars. That guitar would run <$2500 USD here.

Regardless it is a cool guitar. Have fun playing it and make a sweet profit if/when you sell it.

Oh for sure. Supply and demand and all that.

But there's a lot of good stuff with it- the swing tags for one! Offsets have soared in value in UK recently

Yeah the case candy is pretty deluxe for a guitar 50yrs old

I saw your thread over at the fretboard (gave you a "wow" ), i didn't know you were registered here as well

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Congrats! This is the one time I'd probably not refinish a beat-up guitar ... a true relic.




I agree 100 percent .... looks great just the way it is

You're going to repaint it right? Good. Maybe just keep it the natural wood color with tons of poly.

Wow, that thing is so beat up it's beautiful.

Knowing him (a little bit anyway) from another forum i'm pretty sure he's trolling/joking about the refinish
