    NGD: 7 String Dargie

    Some of you may have noticed my first post in the WTB thread, but I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a 7 String Dargie .

    First question, that seems like a good price for a guitar in perfect condition (will post pics ASAP), no? Or NO!

    Second, the Ebay listing stated only 4 were ever made. Is that right?

    Thanks in advance.

    Congrats on a great guitar! One of three JP7s with piezo. 1 JP7 was made without piezo. I'm sure you know the range of prices on used JP7s run. This first Dargie Delight run was a standard guitar with a fancy paintjob and inlays but was so cool and loved by so many people that prices can be a little higher. Ultimately if you are happy with your purchase then it was a good price.

    Thanks DrKev!

    And Tollie, it has the martini glasses on it. The thing seems legitimately untouched.

    I still may grab a BFR, but the condition and limited nature of that dargie proved to be a bit too tempting for me haha.

    Lol Dargin, I'll consider that an official seal of approval.

    Magic, hell yes.

    Question for all the forumites, this thing has supposedly gone untouched since its build. I would imagine the neck is the only thing that might need refreshing correct?

    Also, he says he will mail the build slip later as he's having trouble finding it. I'm a little miffed, but is there another way to verify authenticity? I mean, the martini inlays and paint would be an awful lot of trouble to fake, but still.

    I'm new here, so the guy I bought it from is a member here?

    He says he ordered a 6 and 7 dargie for collection, so I guess I'm the second owner. Nice to know he's a member here though if that's what you're saying.
