For all those instruments made back in the day that don't have a club already. Calling all set necks! (Other than the recent carved tops of course!)

Whats "vintage"? 25+ years? So '88 or earlier?

'85
Image


'87
Image


And I'll cheat for next year ;), '89
(It doesnt have the newer smoother neck/heal joint, but I think it is neck-through - previously thought it was set neck, but I think '89s are neck-thru. Anyway, its unique - pretty rare anyway.)

A pair of '84s

I'm the original owner of the DC160, ordered it around Thanksgiving of 1984, received it 1st week of 1985. I just bought the koa DC200 a couple of months ago, and it's serial # is a couple hundred less than the DC160.

SH-225 & CM96

SH-225 around 1985 I think ? need to research it, closet queen found last summer, strings real close and no fret wear. Plays very good and sounds incredible, very loud guitar and harmonics - both back ad top are carved & i think it's all maple ??

CM96 is 1976 not much fret wear, love the inlays and bound headstock. stereo bolty ! don't like the very low profile frets would love to have re-fretted w/ jumbos. it's a beast very thick maple body sounds awesome.

Update Group Photo ... just picked up a DC160 Fri I'm still in shock, a couple months ago I found the DC125 with solid flame body sides (not a Std custom option)

Hey man no on the trade and I do realize they are much diff, I'm sure the new semi's are more solid sounding, but the old ones sure have that "vibe" through the amp !! I notice my 225 sounds better through a SS amp / tinny thru tube amps ... right now I'm literally almost freaking out as I just a minute ago was looking at the 1979 catalog and I notice that my new DC160 has the same grains as the one in the catalog, I only paid $700 for it and if it's in fact the same guitar I will really freak ... more to come I am gonna find my stack of catalogs and get the magnifier out !!
