Hyak Guitar appeared on Craigslist LA.
It has so sweet heart inlays on fingerboard and tailpiece.
Nice Quilted maple top and back are rare for Hyak.(I've never seen it)
The price is $3500, but I think bit higher.

Nice! I know that Heart was using these back during their creation... with those inlays and tailpiece I wonder if there is an association.

I also know the heart inlay on Robert's Purpleheart Hyak bass.
But it was replaced new fingerboard and inlays, so I thought the inlays were Robert's original idea.

Want to start a pool on how many minutes it takes Bill to grab this one?

Thanks for my morning laugh , Peter! She is a beauty, though significantly over-priced IMHO. I've also never seen one in maple before.Thankfully, I already have a Hayk guitar or I'd probably be agonizing over this one. Still looking for an old Becvar and an old Dolan.

Bill is well aware how much I've wanted a Hyak. But, alas, I must agree with his assessment that this is WAY overpriced. At $1000-1500 less, I wouldn't think twice.
