RARE USA 1984 Jackson San Dimas Soloist Vintage
Selling my Jackson Kevin Bond Signature Rhoads. Used condition but extremely clean and no rust on screws or pickup area or anywhere else. Purchased on ebay 2 years ago so I'm not sure how many owners but this guitar hasn't been abused. There are two points of interest as far as fin or tip chips. One small as pictured on back of headstock and one pictured as well as possible on tip of longer fin. Both were there when I purchased and are not very noticeable. They do not effect the guitar's play and do not indicate any structural damage from a fall. The one on the longer fin is more of a pressure indention and doesn't expose wood the way the headstock chip does. Both are typical of this style when used and not pampered completely. These are a difficult model to keep spotless due to the shape and are very easy to bump around the way they stick out.
Comes with new Jackson case as pictured and has been stored over the past 6 months in this case. Previously stored on stand in spare room with minimal handling. Binding shows the typical aging and this guitar has been polished/waxed and cleaned up nicely after initial purchase. It wasn't set up very well upon arrival but normally you need to do a little work once a guitar has been in transit. Once I adjusted truss rod slightly and the action this guitar has been just great. Frets show little wear and these set up nice and low with little buzzing. Currently set for standard tuning. It's hard to describe but this model is extremely light and very well balanced and Iommi rail pickup crunches nicely. Even unplugged it has a ring to it and an overall smoothness and tightness that you feel when you have a good guitar. Very minimal guitar so I think between that and the pentagram inlays this one doesn't get a lot of recognition. Kevin Bond isn't a household name either. One pickup, one volume knob, mahogany body and ebony fretboard make this a very basic yet powerfully dark crunchy toned model. I've gone back and forth on selling as I really like this one and there's quite a few for sale out there but mostly in red. Green doesn't seem to show up as often. I just don't play enough to warrant keeping right now and I have some other equipment I'm trying to move. Price is already pretty low but I'll accept offers for what you feel is fair.
btw..in pix you may see small specs but this is just dust. Polished black paint and flash really bring out the smudges and specs of dust.
I can only accept paypal and will only ship within the states via Fedex Ground service once payment clears account. I'll include insurance for the sales price when shipping and will pack it up very well.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need more pics sent and thanks for your interest.
