sparquelito Posted October 13, 2019 Report Share Posted October 13, 2019 (edited) So, last year I had my eye on a Devlin solid body guitar, and she was a real looker. Problem was, the owner was real proud of it, and wanted far too much jingo for the guitar. I had done some homework on Devlins, and apparently they were fairly high quality Korean-made guitars, and only made between 2006 and 2009 or so. They all retailed for somewhere around $500 or more. (And then the company dissolved, or merged into something else.) Anyway, last week, I came across a Devlin in a pawn shop just a few towns away from here, and it really caught my eye. It is a double cutaway (much like certain Gibson guitars they used to make, or the Hamer DC that I have always fancied). Problem is, they pawn shop wanted too much for it, and worst of all, the guitar was in really cruddy condition. Dirty, dusty, gunky, and in a state of neglect. I went to visit the Devlin a few times, and managed to play it plugged in. The neck is true, the Grover tuners are great, and the guitar is mechanically sound. (It's just really, really filthy.) So, long story short, I picked her up today, and got it, out the door, for a little over a hundred dollars American. Here's how she looked this morning when I brought her home. (Don't worry. I have had my tetanus shot.)😞 Edited October 13, 2019 by sparquelito PHOTOS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
