Hey,

Looking to trade my EGC Standard, which is the John Grabski guitar that was raffled off here several years ago. It was recently brought to my attention that this in fact that guitar, so I thought it only appropriate to keep it in the family, and therefore have decided to hold onto it until one of us wants it.

25.1" thin neck, two humbuckers, black anodized aluminum body, case that may or may not say "Waxeater" on it and definitely has the Obstructures logo spray painted on it. From what I've heard this is possibly the first EGC with the secret "T" machined into the back of the headstock, though I haven't confirmed it. It is in great condition, and sounds awesome but for some reason, because of my height, the body just hits me in all of the wrong spots.

Preferably looking to trade for another EGC that fits me better but if someone wants to buy it we can figure it out from there.

***NOTE: Marks on body are sweat from various Louisville musicians. They can be removed, but you will not be charged extra if you decide to keep them***


In all seriousness, what is your height? I've been looking at this guitar as a possible first EGC, yet haven't played it. I'm 6'2", 200ish pounds, give or take 2-20 on any given day; do you think it might cause me similar problems? What were your specific body issues?


I wasn't specifically asked but I'm 6'4" 200 lbs and have an EGC standard. I have no issues with comfort or fit of the guitar. I'm short waisted though and wear my guitar a little high. Not Dwyer or Williams high but a little high.

Dude, in my olde age I find I'm playing my Partscaster up around my chin - I come off like a grizzled Dave Matthews or something! It is heavy as fuck (ash?), but still, no excuse. I am finding myself turning more frequently, however, to my lighter, more ergonomic axes, however, like a thin mahogany PRS SE One currently being hot-rodded. Never realized how much I'd appreciate the weight of a lighter guitar; I'd always equated weight with quality. Now, though, I'm seriously eyeing an EGC Chessie for its tiny lbs. fingerprint (and oh yeah, the neck is s'posed to be fucking incredible, even if the Burstbuckers will be saying sayonara + get swapped out for EGC pups).

There, was that verbose and off-topic enough to qualify as one of my authentic posts?

Hahahah, I'm like 5'9" and a buck-fifty, so I highly doubt it would give you the same issues. Seems like the edge just hits me either low rib or hip depending on how I'm playing it which is usually pretty low slung and angled. I could adjust the strap up or down, but I'd rather just play something that feels totally right to me. My Tyranny feels pretty great and for some reason haven't had this issue with a wooden body Standard.

Gibson Epiphone - 1998 Korean Sheraton
$450 plus shipping from Madison, WI

Sheraton hollow body w/ hard case. I've owned it the last 15 years and barely played it and it shows. Very little wear. Missing the pickguard and the rubber part of the pickup switch knob. Case has some surface wear from wedging between other cases but inside is mint.

Kawaii K1 II

I bought this about 20 years ago, and never really used it. No issues that I know of - I have a gig bag for it as well. I think I might have a few sound modules laying around (little credit card size cards that expand the sounds on the factory sound bank). Would prefer Chicago area pickup. Cheapest one I see on ebay is for $129 - so maybe $110?

Selling this Ikea media center/TV bench. Not sure what the Swedish name is because they don't sell it anymore. Surprisingly solid and sturdy and in pretty good condition! $50 or best offer?

So I'm looking to sell my G&L F-100. Plays fine - everything works. Some cosmetic wear. Would prefer selling it local (I'm in Chicago). I'm thinking $700 but am open to offers.

Selling my Warwick Pro Series Corvette 4 stringer. Excellent condition and very minimal wear. I bought it in 2007 and the peak of a phase in which I was obsessed with crazy fusion style, double and triple stop type of playing, i.e. slightly into dude from Mudvayne. I don't know if it's up anyone's alley here but thought I'd try. I'm in Chicago and I'd prefer a local pick up. $650 and it's yours but I'll entertain all offers.

Here's a link to the CL ad. I'm having a hard time adding photos

Re: for sale: things

Postby MrMattDiehl on Thu Jun 22, 2017 9:39 pm

Okay, just finishing up a couple of Partscaster builds & I've found myself with a lot of high-quality leftover parts I'd prefer to share with my PRF brothers & sisters at a nice price. I've included shipping to CONUS in all the prices. (i.e., free shipping, yo. Kinda. If you want me to ship someone outside o' the U.S. of A., additional shipping charges will apply.) Also, I am happy to hear all offers, but I have attempted to price them at a fair, non-haggle price, which I guess means "price is firm - kinda?"

And so it begins:

1) SOLD Lollar surface-mount Gold Foil neck pickup, $150.00: This is perhaps the greatest pickup I've ever played - if you haven't experienced the magic of the Gold Foil, you need to get out more, yo. Just kidding. But this is truly astonishing - & Lollar's interpretation is absolutely fucking superb. Deep rich harmonics & overtones like nobody's biz.

So why am I selling it? Because I ordered a soapbar & got this instead, which I didn't realize was a surface mount until a luthier installed it into my guitar & said, "Dude, this was a hassle to install." Then, when I tried to return it to where I bought it brand new, the proprietor started screaming at me, gave me $200 & told me to keep it. (See "Little Details From My Day" for the whole, strange story.) I took the $200, bought myself a soapbar version direct from Lollar - but now I have two amazing Lollar Gold Foils & can only use one. (I don't have a guitar that takes surface mounts without heavy modding - otherwise I'd keep it.) So basically it's brand new but was installed in one guitar. Did I mention it's the best pickup in the world? $150.00 will take it away. No packaging. (That's another sad luthier story...)

2) SOLD GFS Gold Foil bridge pickup, same rout as Strat single coils, $15.00: Yes, that's right - fifteen bucks! As you can probably tell, I'm swimming in Gold Foils over here - while they are my fave pickup of all time, I just don't have guitars for all of 'em. Despite this being an inexpensive pickup - like $25 new - it sounds absolutely freakin' amazing. It's waaaaay closer to the Lollar than you'd think for not too many clams. Taking a substantial loss I suppose, but I figure someone would buy it. Comes with like-new packaging, all screws etc. etc.

3) Gotoh SD90-MG-T 3x3 Machine Heads locking tunes, $30.00: These are great fucking tuners - locking, cool vintage look (black knobs), perfect for non-inline tuner guitars. Well, most of them. I'm selling them because my luthier dude tried to put them on my PRS SE One & they were too small. Basically brand new in packaging, other than my luthier dude trying to put them on my guitar & failing. I got them off a guy on Craigslist for $25, so I thought $30 with free shipping was reasonable. They go for a lot more, so I think this is an excellent deal.

4) PRS SE P-90, $55.00: This pickup came out of my PRS SE One (basically a Les Paul Jr. with just a single pickup). I fucking love it - it is one of the best P-90s I've ever heard - but I put in a Lollar P-90 & don't have anywhere to put this & don't want to keep saving gear for a rainy day/new Partscaster, etc. I believe it is either a Seymour Duncan Vintage P-90 or a Korean version of it; either way it sounds kickarse - fantastic breakup. I think it's around 9.6k, but sounds a little hotter than the Lollar. Great complex harmonics/overtones, not far from the Lollar IMHO. I see these on Reverb, etc. for $75.00 - but I got a good deal on the guitar (& my friend gave me the Lollar as a gift), so I'm passing on my savings to you, PRF friend! Will throw in a second black P-90 cover cuz I'm fancy like that...

5) Stock Fender Strat tuners from a recent MIM neck, $25.00: I replaced the tuners on my MIM Fender Strat neck (I believe 2015 vintage?) with Schaller M6s. I considered not swapping them out, however, because these stock ones were/are great - but I had the Schallers lying around, so I said fuck it. My loss is your gain. Class up your Squier with these authentic, far superior Fender machine heads! And yes, twenty-five bucks is a steal IMHO. I've used 'em, sure, but they are basically in perfect condition.

6) Bridge humbucker + two Strat-style single coils + basic Strat-style electronics + jack plug, $30: These all came out of the same "lawsuit" Strat-style guitar. They work just fine & sound good - especially considering the nice price! I don't know what they are/who manufactured them, so I can't justify charging more. Happy to sell the individual pickups separately for $10 + shipping (will combine shipping if you take more than one) & the electronics for like $15 (again, if you take the whole enchilada, it's only thirty bucks - an amazing one-time offer!). The electronics have mini-pots btw instead of standard pots. This is done basically to fit a smaller cavity (& save money), but they work just fine. Will get your project guitar up & running asap!

More interested in ye olde ca$h than trades, but... Most interested in/needing Stratocaster wiring harness upgrades (especially with blender mod, TBX, treble bleed, Orange Drop/Oil in paper tone hype crap, high-end parts, etc.) & hand-wound/boutique-ish Stratocaster middle-position pickup (Fralin, Lollar, Bare Knuckle, Raw Vintage, original Bill Lawrence/Wilde, Lace Alumitones, Novak, etc. - although I am open-minded in this area). Also will consider cool distortion/fuzz pedals (especially from Earthquaker Devices - love Acapulco Gold, Hoof, etc.), MXR Shin-Juku, cool octave pedals, Moog Minifoogers (particularly the Chorus & Flange), lower-watt tube amps, fairly compact cabinets, Epiphone Dot, single-pickup guitars (Melody Maker, SG, Reverend) & guitars that take P-90s, cool P-90 pickups...

Happy to answer any questions - PM away. Paypal, yadda yadda yadda. Will subtract $5.00 off price per item if you pickup locally (Los Angeles, CA). If you wanna take the whole shebang of stuff listed here in one swoop, I would definitely do some additional shaving of the price, too, but again these are pretty fair prices IMHO.

Thank ye...

Am graduating to an audio interface with 8 channels and phantom power, so it's looking like I'll be parting with my Tascam UH-7000. Asking $200 + total cost of shipping. No haggling. Continental U.S. only.

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/UH7000

A bit about the UH-7000...It's a good entry-level interface for home digital recording, ideal if you're only doing two tracks at a time -- it can handle four if you use two quarter-inch inputs in addition to the two XLRs -- and don't need phantom power. It's also great for making vinyl to digital transfers. Or doing interviews. And several months ago I made a 24-bit/48k transfer of a 4-track noise thing a buddy of mine and I did in high school and the results sounded markedly better than when I'd previously done a transfer of it at a professional studio. The preamp is loud enough to get a good signal from a ribbon mic on an amp, with room to spare, but I just got a lower-gain dynamic mic and Cloudlifter for vocals and need to power the latter somehow. Figured it was time for an upgrade since I'm getting a bit more "serious." Kinda sad to part with this but don't have much room for it and won't be needing it.

The UH-7000 comes in the original box with documentation and styrofoam, USB cord, data disc with driver and a DAW on it, etc. and is in good condition having only been used in a domestic environment (there was no snorting coke off the top of the top of THIS bad baby!).

Will take offers in the order they're received.

Cheers.
...with Euro-Sprockets coming at you from every direction.

Selling a few mics on Reverb. Shure PGA181. AKG C3000.

https://reverb.com/shop/lizs-gear-emporium-6

I'm also selling an Electro-Voice RE50B but the listing isn't showing up for some reason. It's an omni mic listed for $100.

Feel free to make me an offer and put PRF in the message.

And I'm selling ANOTHER tape delay

Maestro Echoplex EP-4 Tape Delay

https://reverb.com/item/5826436-maestro ... tape-delay

Like bdm, I am open to reasonable offers, and avoiding paying fees would be ideal. Shipping is pretty firm though, depending on location. Also potentially open to trades (reverb or delay pedals, synths.)

They break but they're kind of awesome. Really good in front of a Fender amp. Sometimes I look at mine and imagine it replaced by another guitar or a new head.

I've owned all the popular ones, and all they do is make me nervous, because as lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll has stated, they break. There are plenty of perfectly decent emulations that it just doesn't make any sense to own a real deal Holyfield.
