Just accepted an offer on the last guitar I had on Reverb - an early '80s Ovation Anniversary 1157-7.

Less than what I wanted to see it for, but I'm not getting any other offers, and it's not in mint condition or anything, so off it goes (as soon as the guy pays me).

I have a new build which should list tonight. I have just a little more to do on it.

Well, once again, the buyer bailed. I reported him to Reverb - not much they can do really; people can always open a new account with a new e-mail & "name" and continue trolling.

It's been my experience a couple times when this has happened that I soon get a better offer and the sale goes through - win-win for me. So I just have to be patient.

Wow! I’ve not experienced that yet! I have had sellers sit on items (not ship) until I finally request a refund. So far that’s what’s happened each time. So, no harm no foul.

The PRS SE is gone. I was playing it last night and thought to myself, “meh.”

I sold within an hour of listing, this morning.

Wow - that's fast. But it was the right color; those go fast.

I've sold four in the last week. Nothing inbound.

I have one more to finish up and list. Mike, it's the original body from your Nashville. I've got it looking much better. It won't be as nice as the one you received, but I'll take good pictures and put disclaimers-a-plenty in the listing and price accordingly. I have a new MIM Fender neck with Fender locking tuners to go with that body. And the same pickups - since those work so well together.

The Dean ML sold last night, so that’s 5 gone (including the banana-caster).

Next up is this Burgundy Mist Nashville Tele. I have the body sanded and polished as good as it’s going to be. It will be listed with that caveat and priced accordingly. I have a new Fender MIM neck with Fender locking timers installed. I need to wire it up and finish assemble. It’s getting the same pickups I always put in these. The StewMac Tele set with a DiMarzio virtual blues in the middle. Someone will scratch the Nashville itch for a good price.

I'll vouch for those pickups, Eric - they're the ones you put in my Nashville Tele build and I'm perfectly happy with them. Good choice.

The middle pickup choice was actually thanks to you. It was the pickup in the neck of that SX Tele you floated my way. I used it in my Nashville build along with the StewMacs. I doubt I would have come up with the combination any other way.

My Takamine 12-string sold Monday; buyer finally paid this morning (and apologized for taking so long), it will go out the door tomorrow.

Will be selling the Ovation 1157-7 Anniversary (another offer, but he didn't accept my counter offer) and one Larrivee acoustic, then I think I'm done selling acoustics for awhile.

Next up: Electrics for sale...here's what's going on the block:

Fender American Original 50's Telecaster
Squier Vintage 50's Telecaster
(I have so many nice Warmoth Tele's... & Strats)
Epiphone Elitist Les Paul
Larrivee RS-4
Carvin DC150 (needs some wiring work before I sell)

Feels good to simplify. Can focus more on a few nice instruments. The ones being sold are also nice, but aren't getting used like they should (it's a distraction to still be working full time!).

Still two nice acoustics I want to buy someday:
Martin 1931 00-17 Authentic
Martin J-40 with Maple back and sides (stained); this one will have to be ordered as a custom, so I'll probably start with 18 or 28 style trim and build from there.

Those will both be pricey - another reason to be unloading other stuff!

I haven’t done a thing to the Burgundy Mist body since I last posted. I have too many projects and not enough time.

Forgot!

I plan to acquire something totally unnecessary, just kinda fun and "sentimental" since my dad loved Johnny Cash and gave me that same love of the Man in Black.

Martin came out with the DX Johnny Cash recently; affordable (comes with a gig bag, of course) - and has a pickup in it, so actually practical for playing out when you don't want to endanger one of your nicer acoustics:

I was quoted a very good price...

$529 shipped

Just a heads up; I've got three more lefties posted for sale on Reverb. Two of 'em are Tele's - a Squier Vintage 50's and a Fender American Original 50's...

I *really* like that American Tele. But I have no need for another. I have too many Teles now.
