As usual, a great buy Pierre! :love:

I love the idea of a neck through design but I think at my age my back couldn't handle the weight anymore. :cry:
No problem for you bass players though eh?

Thanks Barry!

Have to say, these VA-800 are lighter compared to my Gibson LP`s ... They are not as heavy as you might think.

Someone has to give these babies a home plus it was fun to meet a fellow board member.

:wink:

Hi Pierre,
I am looking at a VA-800 on Reverb.com. The seller is wants $900 shipped which is know is quite high but I dont see them available very often.
I was wondering if you know the weight on your VA-800?
Thanks
Andy

Sweet guitar! Had one for a while.

$900 is pretty steep for this guitar if you remove the novelty from it. But you are absolutely right, they rarely come up for sale.
