Back in 2003 or so I had a burst Dearmond M-75T that I enjoyed but somehow let get away. It didn't take long to regret the decision, so I kept an eye out for another. Cut to 2011 - Yesterday I found one on local craigslist for a very reasonable price, so I jumped. Home again!

I let a green sparkle M75T DeArmond slide by me four years ago. A little later I found a Starfire Special and have owned it since.

Congrats!

Ragtop - Thanks. It's a '99 just like my first one.
Amazing condition, only a little buckle rash. Seller told me he played it quite a bit the first year he got it, then pretty much stored it for the next ten years. It's a true 'closet classic.'

A couple of years ago I needed cash and sold a beautiful M-77T on ebay for a buy it now of $450(with a Dearmond case). It just sold on ebay a couple of weeks ago for $736 without the case!

I got a sunburst DeArmond M-75 two months ago. It was the first M-anything I had seen locally in a long time. No case, of course.

I had bought a rectangular hardshell case for my Fender and Reverend solidbodies that had to fit the Squier M-75 I owned at the time. It fits the DeArmond as well.

Which is the one with the GoldTone pickups and no Bigsby?

M75 or M75T?

Anyway, I've got the purple one and it is a real nice player and looker, too!

M75

I had to do a Setzer solo at a concert this past weekend so I brought the Starfire Special. Those DeArmond 2000's sound sweet.

I thought the SF Specials came w/ the 2Ks. Am I wrong or right?

Peace,
Jake

Just did a gig with the M-75 this week.

I don't gig it much but was quite pleased with how it sat in the mix and how playable it was.
