Default Gibson Custom Historic 1957 SJ-200 & Rickenbacker 4003

AUSTRALIA

2020 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1957 SJ-200 Vintage Sunburst - AUD$9,000.00

2018 Rickenbacker 4003 Fireglo - AUD$4000.00





I am the original owner of both guitars.

I'm just not playing them enough as they deserve ... and I want one of these before I get too old to drive!!

My wife thinks I'm dumb but yeah, sold a few guitars lately, found it didn't hurt, I have absolutely loved these guitars but I think these deserve a better home now.

I hesitate to describe any guitar that's been taken out of it's case and played as 'Mint' but I'm comfortable saying these 2 are immaculate, (the Rickenbacker still has the factory strings ) only ever played at home and both have never left the house.

Ok Bruce. I've been where you are at a few times now, selling everything. Let's just say that I've found that it's cyclical and it comes with regrets. Some good stuff has gotten away for sure. But only you know what's best for you. GLWS.

I've seen this Gibson listed here new from AUS $10.099.00 up to $12,399.00 - usually 'Not In Stock'.

Reverb has a used one in the USA for AUS$9,575.00 - you need to factor in cost to ship to Australia plus 5% Import Duty and 10% Sales Tax.

The roof doesn't come off and I'd need to sell my house just to get it serviced!

I don't know if this is true but a guy in the USA on facebook messaged me that his friend went to order a new Gibson Historic 1957 SJ-200 and was told the wait time could be up to 3 years!!
