In the spirit of possibly moving some items this week while I'm off work, check out the above link for a some guitars I'm liquidating.

Transition Electra Strat Bullet Truss Rod, Goofy Logo, probably around 1974, nice weight, slim neck, rattle can paint job, can't vouch for originality of electronics, but sound authentic.

X280 Workingman 100% original, some bumps and bruises mostly on headstock, Missing selector switch top (will try to locate one), light weight, plays and sounds NICE.

2248 Rock-n-Soul Telecaster First Year production, ~1972, serial number 0049!!! 100% stock, with nice tweed case. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=5896 and watch this video for more info: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=049ILvP_ ... Uw&index=6

Antarez fancy "Workingman" Thought this might be a Matsumoku product from the grainy pics, but found it to be a lesser Korean made axe when I got it up close. Brass nut, Brass saddles, Laminated Maple body, unremarkable pickups and chunky neck. Your chance to profit from my thirst for knowledge!

Drop me a line if you're interested, can work out quantity deals for you bargain hunters.


P.S. this is the 2nd group to be listed, and there will be another group of higher end and rarer examples coming!

The Workingman has been sold to a Forum member, and is on its way to sunny Florida. Only the White Strat and the curious Laminated Antarez left... make me an offer gents! I have a few other examples I'll be listing once these sell. Cheers, Mike.

Thanks for watching the vids, I do appreciate it. I had a bad switch in a drawer with a topper still, reduce, reuse, recycle says I. The 'Tone Spectrum' circuit is pretty cool, and ahead of its time, many players have a hard time getting used to the rotary-ness of it all though.


Any interest in the Strat/Avenger?? It looks pretty sweet from 4 feet away!

Hey Mike - where is the forum member in Florida (that bought the Workingman) located? I'm in Jacksonville (which is near the GA/FL border, on the East Coast). Just curious where the other smart collector here in sunny FLA :) - Mark

The Workingman ended up in Deltona, Fla. I believe Warrn is in northern Florida, and it looks like you're close enough to make it to Arthurs place for ElectraFest 2013!
