sort of a feeler ad to see if there would be any interest in the coolest guitar i have at the moment. its a 1978-79 Technikraft Hustler, built right here in northern illinois, Mundelien IL. these where only built for about a year before they sold the patent. less than 500 ever made. it has a hollow one piece fiberglass body attached to an aluminum neck w. oak surrounds & fretboard. i actually hunted doen the former CEO of techniktaft b/c there is no real info about them on the interwebs.

dearmond humbuckers, probably hb-1's metal braided conducter, nut is not original it should have a brass nut. the pup switch surround has been cracked so i have the switch rigged in there right now. there is some marker on the back that look to be someone's music theory homework, never tried to take it off.

the only listing i could find was for a ebay feedback post where one sold for $900 in 2005. not sure of the condition though. if that one was 10/10 mine is a conservative 5/10ish. hopin for about $450

only even thinking about letting it go b/c unfortunatley the wife & kid come first and i need to take care of some stuff.

just sits under the bed in what i think is the original case, someone should be playing this suckka on stage Twisted Evil

has a ground issue also & i'll get better pics up when i get home in the morning

any interest let me know

be excellent to each other

joe



open to offers as well & maybe a partial trade Cool
