Looking for a 22.5" (only 2 markers past the 24th) Fender Stringmaster from the late 50's, preferably, or early 60s. w/ case. Here's the ideal model type, but I'll consider a 6.:





Also looking for an archtop in the $500-$600 range. Looking at the new Loar LH=600s and the Epi Masterbilts, but everyone say they're not so hot. If you're selling something used like that, or have something that plays really well you wanna get rid of, hit me up! Thanks!

As far as an archtop goes, have a look at a Samick.
When my guitar slinging buddy comes over, that is his favorite axe.

Mark,
Good on you!
Samick builds about half the guitars sold in the world.
Usually they put other's names on them but they did put their own name on some. Very Happy

Archtop guitar? Godin 5th Avenue / Kingpin model with single P-90. Not the same as an old Gibson ES-125 but does have some of the same vibe.
