Thread: How cheap can I get into some CRACKWOOD....

    How cheap can I get into some CRACKWOOD....

    I've got $550 cash in hand, another guitar that is worth approx $850 = $1400. I've got some spare pedals that I could get rid of in order to get a bit more liquidation in my pocket. I own an Archtop II & McCarty, so this one will definitely need to have a trem. I do NOT like/prefer gold hardware, tho' I can live with it. I am a bigger fan of vintage vibe/tones, rather than modern/high gain tones. I don't need a 10 top.

    1. How affordable would it be to get a PRS with trem & rosewood neck? Which models/why?

    2. Or, you think I can't afford a crackwood guitar & I should buy a _______ because ______.

    I scored my first McRosie off Craigslist for around your budget....deals are out there if you have cash in hand and are diligent in looking for them....

    First step, cash in hand... check. I watch the Craigslist for a couple hundred miles around me often, don't see a lot tho... I guess it's all about the right time/place.

    I seem to remember a McCarty rosewood on GC's used page for $1600-ish? No trem though. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.
