Please see pics at Guitars for sale

1978 Ibanez Musician MC200DS, brown stain, neck-through, ebony fretboard, no fret wear, bone stock and near mint (except for a scuff that easily should buff out, some small case-dings along the edge, and a replaced and slightly crooked bottom strap button - no damage, though), shiny hardware, no case, a really nice example, $675 + shipping

1988 special-order short-horn Carvin DC-150, all maple with ebony fretboard, great neck and frets are clean, finish shows a little wear, but with Carvin's high-polish late-'80s finish, you really have to look hard to see it, special-order with neck-through body, '58 Flying V-style headstock, black hardware, Schaller hardtail Strat-type bridge, 2 stacked single coil pickups, 2 volume, 2 tone, individual coil tap switch for each pickup, phase switch, very wide range of tones, never had a pickguard, includes original hard case and original bill of sale, surely one-of-a-kind, and very, very, cool (I love this guitar!), $550 + shipping

1981 Martin 7-37K, one of fewer than 90 made, scaled-down dreadnought, 23" scale, spruce top, koa back and sides, unbound ebony fretboard and bridge, pearl rosette and unique pearl fretboard inlays, bone stock except perfect replica bridge expertly installed by master luthier at Gruhn's, with original molded Martin case, clean and just too cool, plays great and sounds huge, the original high-end travel guitar, why pay more for a SC Firefly or a C*llings Baby when you can own a nearly-30-year-old koa upper-end Martin?, $2350 + shipping

Erlewine Automatic set-neck Strat/LP hybrid, very rare - 1 of only 300 made, designed by Mark Erlewine and built under license by Hondo in the early '80s - this is not your typical Hondo - solid mahogany body and neck, tobacco sunburst finish with flat flame maple top, set neck, two original humbuckers wound to get the sound of Billy Gibbons' vintage Les Paul Pearly Gates (according to Erlewine), string-through body, rosewood fretboard, sweet Gibson neck shape with tilt-back headstock, headstock logo simply reads “Automatic,” with gig bag, very cool and plays and sounds great with a wide range of tones, cleaner now than it was when these pics were taken by the previous owner, priced to sell at $375 + shipping

I'm a Forum member since '02 and a 100%-positive-feedback ebayer, and these guitars were bought for my personal use - I'm not a professional seller, I just need to thin the herd. Please take a look at my pics (see above). Contact me at wakeandsee [AT] verizon [DOT] net. Thanks!
