Here's one from the gearpage. I tend to think it's a lot newer than an '83, I thought the SA2200 were more recent, but either way it's a damn nice guitar.I will check those out, don't believe I have played those.
and its older wood ! Davetcan that's great you have found a suitable sub.

The early ones, like my '84 weren't flamed and have a nice sized neck on them. They came like my burst or in red of course. Not the best picture but you get the idea.thanks Dave ! that looks like a terrific guitar, I have to be honest, lately, I've had an aversion to flame maple and slim necks. I know tall order finding a "chunkier" neck on this kind of guitar, I will try and find one to play though.
I'm beginning to have doubts about Franco's taste.Dave, that look's awesome! BTW, my son Franco keep's watching your vid. All the best.
I am still hanging on to mine.yup, they are just following the burst on up, my old 61 345 came up on ebay about 3 weeks ago to my amazement (have been trying to replace it ever since and found it on ebay !!! 2 owners down since me), needless to say, I'm priced out of the game, best guitar I ever had, but I"m left scratching my head. Do I collect or do I play ? well , I play em. So, I do believe I will not see another vintage 3x5, that's just supply n' demand working . In 6 yrs that guitar doubled to over 15g's from when I had it.
I don't know if the vintage market will subside, time will tell.
its left me looking for alternatives such as: Brian Monty, who looks to build a beautiful version of the 335.
Tokai's are great to: but left me missing something when I owned one.
sadly, those old guitars "have it", unfortunately, they are desired as collectibles. so the search continue's.
I feel your pain, the are just tooo expensive.
anybody have any suggestions where to go ??? (heritage isn't for me, although some folks love these)
