    Default FSOT: Yamaha PAC 1511 Mike Stern

    Pictures here:
    My site
    An amazing guitar with it's own voice and vibe that can jazz, rock, or blues it up. I just never seem to play it...and that ain't right! Guitars are for making music, so...want to trade?
    The details...
    Beautifully grained and bound swamp ash body and a maple neck with a maple board. Weighs in at 7 lbs. Super resonant unplugged,and great electric tones with the Duncan 59n/Hot Rails Rails Rails combination. I think it's a great looking instrument, and it's clean. Some light finish marks and some heavier on the pickguard, light boardwear, but no dings and lots of fret. These are made in Japan.
    Upgrades include:
    -Joe Barden bridge and saddles (3 vintage-style brass). This added so much to the tone!
    -Neck has been color-matched nitro-finished (I don't care for oil -finished necks).
    Gigbag included.
    Value set at $1200.
    Looking for:
    -PRS CE24 (pre-plastic birds preferably)
    -Gibson ES135/137 (w/TOM/Stop Tailpiece and no Varitone please)
    -Gibson Les Pauls (pref. p90's or mini-HB's but...)
    -Fender Robben Ford (MIJ obviously...unless you're feeling generous).
    -Ibanez Metheny (any MIJ)
    -Carvin Holdsworth (w/ trem)
    -Fender Super Reverb (BF)
    Will consider all reasonable offers.

    Oh wow! I've always wanted to try one of these. How's the neck profile? Thick or thin?

    I'd say medium profile. I don't like really thin (shallow) necks, and this is very comfortable to me. It has a 7.25 radius, but it bends without choking anywhere on the neck. I have it out now and have been playing it more, so now...naturally...I'm having pre-seller's remorse. Really trying to stick to my plan though...there are simply too many other things I want to try, and I can't do that responsibly without moving something, and when it comes down to it...I'm not a maple board guy (except some Strats).

    Some other trade ideas:
    -Ceriatone Amp...OTS or SSS
    -70's-early 80's Ibby Artist
    -Rosewood board Teles or Strats (like I don't have too many of those)
    -DA Rosenwinkel
    Got something else...let it fly.
