Picked mine up a year and a half ago in PERFECT condition from the guy who bought it new in '88. He even threw in the original Carvin catalog he ordered it from. I bought an RC-50 to have fun with this guitar and it delivers!

Curious to know how much those beauties weigh.

The koas fairly light... Guessing 8-9 pounds. The maple is somewhere around 13 :lol: it's one brick of a bass, but the tones! Ahhhhh... It's a rickenbacker killer and then some.

I don't have this guitar anymore, but I thought I'd post this pic of me and my CM130 back in '83. I was 17 yrs. old

Great picture fullpin! By the way do you remember where exactly this picture was taken; the building in the background looks familiar.

I always think of Gil Parris.. and Roy Clark in the catalogs back then, when I see those grand old 225's.

(And Hofner of course)
