Richwood Artist

Post by Westbone on Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:41 am

Postman Patel brought this today, thought you'd like a look.










I'm not a huge fan of fancy fingerboards but this one is done so nice.


Plays and sounds very good.. Smile Mahogany body and neck with maple cap.
2nd. hand but vitually as new.

Very nice Damian. Looks like an Aria Pro style neck joint. I won't make you an offer on this one, but my derisory generous offer on your Scroll still stands.

Stunning! cyclops What a beautifully made guitar. I love the vine inlays on those old Electras and Ibanez Artisits. Never heard of Richwood, is that an older guitar (i'd assume) and do you know where she was made?

As far I can make out they're made in Korea or this model was around 2005/6. Retailed at about 850. I didn't pay that mind.
It's crafted very well, plays good and up against my 'real' Les Paul custom it's no slouch. Might stick some top quality pots+caps in.

Damian,
Your ability to pick and get fab guitars is now legendary as is the backdrop to your photos, eg the casually placed rifle. Smile

Thank you for the favourable comments. Smile

Set it up today to find the trus rod was as loose as, never been tensioned at all. The neck had a slight bow, not much though. Must be made of good stuff. Smile 1 slightly high fret but thats with a real low action. Raised it a mm it's fine.
Cranked it up LOUD today, through a Peavey Bravo 25 watt. Sounds fine, well chuffed.

No pidgeon is safe around here. Bloody things crap all over the felt roof, not good. Flying vermin. Catch that pidgeon!
These are woodys as well and you cant even eat them. Not the city ones. Sorry bird lovers, sometimes you cant let them mess up things. affraid
