Just going by what's listed, does this seem like a decent price? If it is, I'm gonna say screw the Talman I'm also interested in, call the shop and see if I can put a deposit over the phone, and then pick it up when I arrive. _________________ 10 PRINT "Bite Me!"

When I spoke to the salesperson, I asked him to level with me.
They took the guitar in over Christmas, Overall it's in good condition, missing the trem arm (but that's fine, I rarely ever need use trem), it holds tune nicely, sounds good (with Duncan Distortions, itd better), comfortable action.

IMO, one of the best parts of the Hi-Flyer, regardless of the model, are the pickups. My phase 3 came with only the neck humbucker and it's probably the fattest and sweetest sounding humbacker I ever did heard.
But that's probably a fair price for that guitar. Enjoy!
it appears so. But since the pickups have already been replaced, any thoughts of trying to preserve its originality never came to fruition. If the tuners suck, they're going away. This is gonna be a player (or a guitar I flip on the local market) _________________ 10 PRINT "Bite Me!"

kurt put Seymour duncan Jb on every single guitar he used.
tuners seems replaced , maybe something not matched the replacement wish may caused the guitar going out of tune _________________
I bought her, but she was not as described. However, her neck though felt so great, and she has so much potential and mojo, that I took a risk. She's got a few dings, but none in an uncomfortable place. And she was also over $100 less than the most recent one I saw listed locally in PR.
Anyway, she's an early Phase II, originally with P90's, but a pair of Duncan Distortions are wedged in place. I'm thinking of replacing the pots though, in order to brighten up the pickups a bit.
When I get the guitar home to PR and open her up, I'll have a better idea of what to do. But for now, I am just enjoying that sweet sweet neck. Pics, well later. Jet lag is killing me, and I'm going to bed. _________________ 10 PRINT "Bite Me!"

I soooooo fucking adore the hiflyer, if it weren't for the kurtsz stigma I'd be all over the fucking things. That was a sweep scoop, man.
Anyone who makes the connection obviously has a bit of Kurdtz themselves, or once did. Hi-Flyers aren't particularly notable in general. I'm sure you'd get as many/possibly less Cobain comments as with a Super-Sonic, whom people merely vaguely familiar with Kurt's choice in Fenders might mistake for one of his. _________________
which one of you bastards sent me an ebay question asking if you can get teh kurdtz with that 64 mustang?
fran & paul are some of the original gangstas of the JS days when you'd have to say "phuck"
