Vintage 60s Japanese Baritone Guitar Surf Conrad Blackstone

  • Price:$159.99

Here's a rare beauty for your consideration, it's a baritone guitar by Blackstone of Japan.  It plays nicely and has that deep surf tone like was used in the spaghetti western films of the 60s!  It has a cool original boost switch that either lets full power into the pickups or cuts some power.  It also has a retro-fitted bridge added that works just fine.  If you have, or can find the original type that was on it, it will still accept it. There's no whammy bar, but it originally had one. The new bridge covers the whammy bar hole. The tuners look to be replaced and they are really nice 60s vintage Yamaha 6-on-a-strip! I'm going to call this a project because the middle pickup is weak and the tone pot doesn't affect the tone. But this thing still sounds fantastic even with these minor issues. There also looks to be a very small portion of the control cavity exposed past the pickguard on the left, probably there from day one, and a small tip missing on the right horn of the pickguard, see photos. 

 If you've ever played a baritone guitar, you know they feel like playing a bass guitar because of the longer scale neck. You can get this beauty a whole lot cheaper than other "perfect" ones here on ebay. At this price this rare guitar is going to go fast, so if you want it, better use Buy it Now!  Good Luck!

 No International bidders please, I can't do the shipping.
