Super low price on this sweet sparkle jet. I’m selling at a small loss to snag up a tele someone is holding for me. I don’t think you’ll find one in this condition for this kind of price again.

Sounds amazing, plays very well, stays in tune, and versatile. This one looks gorgeous and has been well taken care of. There’s a light surface scratch on headstock that is difficult to see—I did my best to get a picture of it. The OHSC is in excellent shape and looks new besides a small dent on the top (pictured).

I’ve replaced the roller bridge with a chambered brass Compton that greatly improves intonation and tuning stability. I’ll include the original roller bridge and a Vibramate Bigsby spoiler.

SOLD Well below what they’re going for (3k new and lowest price on Reverb is 2300+). Buyer pays secured PayPal fee, but PayPal F&F is accepted as well.

This is listed on TGP and locally as well, so may sell before the listing comes down.

Wow... looks great. I'm not really a sparkle guy, but it pairs surprisingly well with the aged binding and the brass bridge.
Agreed. I thought the brass really set it off aesthetically. Sounds excellent with the ebony board and TVJ classics. Very nice mix. I have to say, I don’t recommend the space control roller bridge if you are hypersensitive to intonation. I’m including it for stock value, but man those things never sound right to me.

Yeah, it’s just that increased risk of shipping internationally. It’s a fantastic price. Someone’s getting an awesome deal.
it's not just that, the import tax into the UK is a minefield now. Who knows what additional costs I'd have to pay before it would get delivered. It's a nightmare now.
