Hi all. Up front i will say that i dont have shipping boxes, so I am looking for a local sale. I live about 45 minutes from a GC or other store to get boxes, and the closest fed ex is about 30 minutes, so trying locally first.

I am the original owner of both of these. They are both in excellent shape. I dont think this group needs details about how they are made, or pickups, but if you email me I will answer the best i can.

The White A150 is stock, minus the decal which can be removed, but who doesn’t like Alice in wonderland. The truss rod cover you a see will be replaced with the original that still has the film on it. Comes with the guild case. I got this one directly from guild, not a store. With the exception of where a pick slid on the pickgaurd, it looks new. Currently has 10 flat wounds, as my fingers cant handle much thicker, but it can easily take 12’s. With the solid top it projects quite a bit unplugged. The DeArmond 1100 has that great thick sound. Volume and tone are on pickgaurd. Asking 1200. I cant find any used, and the few new ones are still up around 1599.

The A350 Stratford is a beauty to behold. i didnt care for the white pick up covers, so they were painted black, which i think looks sharp, but since they easily screw off, you can put on what you like. The truss rod cover will be removed as well, and replaced with the original. It is currently fitted with a Compton Custom stainless steel bridge cut to the radious of the neck. I think these increase sustain and improve tone. Its included as well as the original Bridge. Asking 1200.

I will answer any questions you have, so please reach out. I really prefer local, face to face, and will drive a bit from where i am to meet.

If you have some sort of a great deal on shipping, i would order a box or two from reverb and ship on your dime, and you send me the airway bill.

I would do both at 2200 if picked up locally. I am in what’s considered central Virginia. About an hour and a half from DC, and hour from Richmond, and hour from Charlottesville.

Thanks for looking. I have more photos if you like.

Maybe after the sale you can tell us a bit how you achieved that result.
Agreed! Those covers look great! I know someone who painted some G&L pickup covers to make them white and the paint eventually wrinkled and peeled off.

About a month or so back I was looking around for replacement covers, and i think is might have been suggested here, use vinyl paint. They use it on cars and such. It adhears to plastic better than standard spray paint. It a bit mire, close to 10 dollars a can, but it seems to works. Assuming you like black.

Boxes arrive today, both are on reverb. I’m having a hard time lately playing deep bodied archtops due to a nerve on the inside of my right arm, or i would not sell these off. So going to thinner bodies. That being said, anyone local that has a starfire 2 dyna with case, i would trade one of these out, even though either are worth a tad more.
