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. <br /> <br /> Congrats!

Schweeet! Gorgeous guitar.<br /> <br /> How old is it, do you know?

Ragtop - Thanks. It's a '99 just like my first one.<br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br />

Which is the one with the GoldTone pickups and no Bigsby?<br /> <br /> M75 or M75T?<br /> <br /> Anyway, I've got the purple one and it is a real nice player and looker, too!<br /> <br />

"Which is the one with the GoldTone pickups and no Bigsby?"<br /> <br /> M75<br /> <br /> 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.<br />

"Those DeArmond 2000's sound sweet."<br /> <br /> I thought the SF Specials came w/ the 2Ks. Am I wrong or right? <br /> <br /> Peace,<br /> Jake<br /> <br /> <br />

Just did a gig with the M-75 this week. <br /> <br /> I don't gig it much but was quite pleased with how it sat in the mix and how playable it was.
