    Here is a gorgeous, custom white Seventy Seven Exrubato Jazz archtop, handmade at the Aska Factory in Nagano, Japan. The craftsmanship and build quality of Seventy Seven guitars give much more expensive instruments a run for their money.

    The Exrubato Jazz features a spruce laminate top, a five-piece maple neck, trapeze tailpiece, ebony fretboard, and fully hollow construction with no center block—imagine an ES-330 with humbuckers. Stock Seventy Seven necks are known for their vintage chunkiness—this particular guitar has a slimmer neck, measuring ~0.83” at the first fret and ~0.91” at the twelfth fret. The nut width is 1.72”. The guitar is outfitted with Seventy Seven’s own AL255 humbuckers, which are warm and balanced, capable of producing a variety of useful jazz, blues, and rock tones.

    This instrument is in excellent condition with minor play wear and a bit of patina on the pickups. The frets are in great shape. The truss rod functions as expected. Action is low with minimal relief and plenty of room for adjustment. There is a tiny ding on the rim a few inches from the lower strap pin. Ships in the original fitted hardshell case.

    $1350 + shipping and 3% PayPal fees or no-fee payment with Venmo. No trade offers please.

    Here is the actual guitar being played through an AB763 Fender Twin Reverb through a big ol’ Bandmaster cab loaded with a 15” Weber California speaker:



    Here’s the same model guitar in more capable hands:

    I came here last night to post a "PSA" about this one, it's a steal, and they won't make any more of these.

    Not to toot my own horn, but agreed. There is another one listed on Reverb for $2500.

    The grey/white color pattern is kind of gorgeous.

    Yes, it’s kind of “milky blue” where the underlying wood is darker.

    FYI, these guitars are built to an extremely high standard. This guitar is worth a lot more than $1300.

    As an owner of a 77 guitar I can firmly say that this is a giveaway price!

    Why? I don't fully grasp the Deviser-Bacchus-Seventy Seven corporate structure but they have made some other odd decisions. They had a couple of brands like Brian and Jayro which seemed to come and go for no obvious reason.

    Have they announced the death of Seventy Seven?

    I know the feeling. I bought 4 guitars this year and I am desperately waiting for 1 Jan 2023 to roll around!

    I am going by what Seventy Seven dealers here in the US have been told by Deviser. Production was moved temporarily to the Philippines, but it has moved from there now and Seventy Seven hasn't said specifically where they are made; probably China or Indonesia. What they have said is "no more Japanese Exrubatos".
