Yep. I got it. Thanks, Kevin, for the "headsup" (pun intended, of course!). Glad to be the owner of an RS-4 again!

I just couldn't pass it up for that price.

And BTW, this is one of the FEW times I've been the person who got a great deal on something like this - I guess it was my turn!

Thanks!

Don't know yet which pickups it has in it, but I suspect Generation III, since many of these painted RS-4's were later models. Part of the adventure.

The seller said the reason for the low price is a small crack in the ebony headstock veneer. Larrivee offered to fix it for him under warranty; he didn't bother. I'll take a look at it - at this price it probably won't bother me. But if I decide the guitar deserves to be pristine, I may check with Larrivee and see what it would cost for the 2nd owner to get it repaired.

But I know this is going to be a  nice guitar

Congratulations, sometimes it pays to be a lefty.  Those electrics look like they wouldn't take conversion sitting down.

The cheapest RS-4 ever just got cheaper...

After the sale, the seller contacted me and said he forgot to mention that he had done some de/resoldering of the controls (to switch it over to "vintage wiring"), replacing the original capacitors (the ones Larrivee uses are top notch). Also, he said his soldering skills aren't the best, but everything works. Still has the original pickups and pots.

So he offered to knock some $$ off and or throw in some packs of strings (and he was already throwing in a leather strap). I'm already getting a great deal on this, so I didn't want to get too greedy, so I asked him to knock off $50 and throw in whatever strings, etc., he wants to get rid of.

So now my price is only $600 - unbelievable for a guitar of this quality! Thanks, brother! (He's a forum member here...)

My guess too would be Gen III as well due to color and the Kluson tuners. Sure looks purrdy

Here's some the previous owner had posted here when he first got it. This was a custom color he asked Matthew for - so it might be a one off. He called it "Candy Blue" in a previous thread:

 

(I'll be sure to take a few when it arrives!)

Seller said he shipped it two day priority ... so it should be here Monday! I'm stoked - yes - Christmas is coming a little early (with this guitar and upcoming new granddaughter!).

Dang USPS! For almost 48 hours their tracking has said my guitar just left Hazelwood, MO (St. Louis area)! Crimony, I could have driven down there and got it by now (except for work, life, etc.)!

Two day Priority mail... riiiiight...
