1973 W600 spruce/brazilian

(1/5) > >>

Pike:
Built in '73, sold '74... Imported by Beckmen Musical Instruments. Only three I've ever heard of, mine, one I can't get the owner to sell to me, and another in Australia that's kind of beat up.







Tio Kimo:
ok Pike, between the Danas and this....if you HAD to pick one...which would it be?

Pike:
The Cherokee Kimo, hands down...

Monk_:
Nice volute on the neck, too.  Looks like a real beaut', how does the craftsmanship appear to be on the inside?

Pike, we exchanged comments back in '08 regarding the W600.  I bought mine in back in '76 if I remember correctly at a shop called the Guitar Post in Evanston, IL.  It's a beauty and in mint shape.  I would never sell it.  Just had some work done on it with a Luthier I completely trust and it has never sounded better.  Most folks have no idea about the W500 and W600.
