Does anyone here have #6971? Last I heard, it was on the west coast somewhere. I sold it to Slydog about 10 yrs ago. I think it them went to Sligoman. After that????

One of those guitars you can't get out of your head. If you have it and would be willing to let it go, please drop me a line.

Thanks,

Brad

Wow. 625 views and no one knows anything about this guitar?
Never would have guessed that. There is always hope that it will show up someday.

Just curious. Is this particular 1681 somehow better than all the other 1681's out there on the market?

Well, it is Blue... which makes it cooler that my dull Black one.

Old pic... but I still have the guitar.

It seems to have a brown bowl (with or without sparkles?) - was that a common feature?

I have 2 Adamii with brown bowls a 1681-8 from 1987 and a 1588-7 from 1988,my adamii from the 90's have black bowls so maybe it depends on which decade they were made.

Time for the annual bump. Has anyone seen this guitar? Have it? Want to let it go?

Well, it took a bit more than two years but the current owner of this guitar has contacted me. That's the good news. The bad news is that it's not going anywhere for the time being. At least now I know and communication has been established for the time in the future when she's ready to move.

Wow, persistence does pay off. Glad you found it, Blues, and with that level of determination, I've no doubt you'll find it back in your hands one of these days. And the fact that it's not going anywhere speaks to the guitar as well. Well done.

Congratulations BluesSailor! What Weaser P says about persistence sure is true. But were I in your shoe, I think I would be standing somewhere between peace and frustration! Good luck and I hope you get her back!
