So let me start by saying - I Know I Know .. a MILLION dollars seems a wee bit high for this particular guitar .. but I have a MILLION memories from this guitar .. so I figured why not a dollar a memory ! In fact, at least half those memories have been created right here on Craig’s List amongst the lovely CL community ! However, all things considered tho, if you’re not a believer in the value of guitar mojo .. perhaps I could be persuaded to take Much LE$$ for the guitar ;)
Now what we have up for grabs here is a Paul Reed Smith SE - Mike Mushok Signature Baritone Guitar with a Silver Burst finish ! Mike Mushok is the guitarist for the band - Staind .. if that has any importance to a potential owner .. and regardless of the fact that much of his music leans on the heavier side of rock / metal .. this baritone is well suited for many genres. In fact, I personally experimented putting standard 10 gauge strings on it & tuning it to only a half step below standard .. and it sounded good ! Suffice to say there are many options & possibilities with a guitar like this.
I bought the guitar used myself, however I am including everything I know & can think of regarding this guitar (as of now) .. but more details may come to light with further research, investigation, & memory recall. For example, I'm uncertain of the year of production, but As Of Now, my best guess is the late 2000's. So it's probably around 10 yrs old. I would say it's certainly in good to very good condition especially considering it's age .. but it's not mint or perfect. In the future I'll probably include better pictures .. although I feel it's probably best to just come look at it in person and make an accurate assessment. There's obviously no obligation to buy if you'd like to see it & assess if you'd want it. Speaking of buying .. the guitar originally sold for about $665 new .. and apparently these have really retained their value as their average selling price is approx. $725 used according to eBay, Reverb.com, etc.
I am open to the possibility of TRADES as well .. but cash and anything else that makes this transaction as easy as possible will always get you the best deal !
Some of the features are as follows :
- Silverburst Finish

- 27.7” Scale Length

Some personal experiences with the guitar are as follows :
- Because of the slightly different feel & sound .. it often sparked new creativity .. such as new riffs & approaches
- Because it was never my main guitar .. it would sometimes sit unplayed for extended periods of time .. only for me to return to a guitar still in tune .. it seemed to stay in tune quite well
Finally, if I missed anything or you have any related questions .. feel free to ask. Thanks again !
