    Rumbleseat Burst

    I'm going to be in Nashville in a few weeks and I'm interested in checking this out. In the "Current Bursts for Sale thread" , this is listed but does anyone have any feedback/experience with it?

    "found more info on search" but opinions still welcome.

    I’ts a killer sounding guitar. It’s a shame it hasn’t sold yet.

    Out of respect for the owner who is a member here , I won't comment on the horrible crap he went through after owning it for many years.

    Re: Rumbleseat Burst

    I'd be glad to stop in and give it a whirl on behalf of any interested parties!



    Actually, last time I was in Rumble Seat about a year back a fella working there threw a 'burst at me unsolicited while were just chatting it up fully knowing that it was not my price range, how's that for customer service? Pro tip: it's a bit ironic the spot with the most high dollar fiddles in town has the best prices on strings. They rang me up for a pack and I said "uh, I'll take 5 more."

    Cody owned and played it.

    Any perspective buyer would have to be very wary buying this 'Burst ...

    It's , going to be another battle in the courts for the next owner as well...

    I hope that doesn't happen.
    It has been settled in the courts and a judgement was made. It should be clear and free.

    Please explain. Why would there be another court battle?

    Re: Rumbleseat Burst

    Could file suit .... although a settlement was reached by both parties , most likely would be moot .

    Disclaimer: Trust me I know !
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    He thinks the mirror is a photo of a clown ?

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Re: Rumbleseat Burst

    Free and clear now as that was all settled ,unfortunately Cody won the case [Least IMHO] but then could not keep the guitar. Rumble Seat owns it and can sell it to whoever they want.

    +1 ... ... it's a very fine 'burst that anyone should be fortunate enough to own.

    Re: Rumbleseat Burst

    I'm not really up to speed on burst prices but this one seems ~100K less than many on the market and seems to have some fans.

    Does the stigma of the lawsuit haunt this one? I assumed it would sell reasonably fast since it's a well respected guitar.

    Seems like quite a bargain compared to others out there.

    Agree - can't imagine this will last long at this new price.

    Re: Rumbleseat Burst

    I've never played a burst, but that sure looks like a great example. 240,000 really sounds great compared to some other examples ive seen floating around the internet. if you buy it you're one lucky person !

    Actually I wasn’t, Harry is a super nice guy and I felt the guitar deserved a new lease on life. I’m stoked to get it on the road. Thanks for coming to the show!
