Can't remember if this is the same one offered for sale a short time ago with an unusual burst finish. You normally see the solid colour paint finish on these bad boys.

That's a good price, it should sell pretty quickly.
Maybe its just me but lately people seem to be asking absolutely stoopid money for some of these guitars. :toopid:

It's kinda nice, but I'm not feeling a burn to get it. It's not as far away as that Thunder Bay Avenger was but it still ain't that close.

I hear you. The Avengers are like the AP2 CS, not real fancy but dang fine machines. Utilitarian if you will.
Sadly, as much as we'd like, we just can't save 'em all. :doh:

Love my Avengers to bits, just as I love the Spectrums. Bottom feeders relatively, but yes, "dang fine" indeed. They still run rings around most of the new stuff of today.

I still want a CS. It's been on my "want" list forever. I came close last year to getting a lovely trans blue one locally but the owner jerked me about. Hard to find them for some reason. Perhaps they're just too dang fine to sell off.

That is epically nice, eh! Shipping kills it, and besides, I'll hang out for an Electra Phoenix X175.... just to complete my Spectrum/Phoenix set, you understand?!?

So, you blokes over there just keep your eyes peeled for me, please?!

Good on ya, mates!
