    Thinning out the vintage RayBan collection, eBay looks like a sorry mess so I thought I'd give my fellow TBers a shot at 'em first.

    First up is the Clubmasters. I believe they're 50mm. These look cool all right but they do have some wear, particularly on the lenses. The flash makes it look worse than it is, but I don't want you to have any bad surprises. I can see through them OK - fine for outdoor or non-reading indoor gigs... even driving. (Truth be told I can't see worth a crap w/o a prescription anymore anyway.)

    The hinges are nice and tight.

    I'd hang on to them but they're just not quite my style.

    I'm asking what I paid, which is $50 shipped ConUS. EDIT: TRADED

    Up next is a rare specimen: the "Chad" style. Haven't found this anywhere else. Probably women's but they look cool on a dude too in a '60s kind of way. They're built like a tank - the new stuff just isn't like this at all. I'd call the lenses very good, with just a couple of tiny scratches and blemishes.

    They fit my big melon just right (I wear a 7 1/2 hat).

    Asking $60 shipped ConUS. EDIT: now $50!

    And finally I got the Caravan Aviators. I think they're 58mm - they're big.

    These are in excellent shape. The only wear & tear that I can discern is some scuffs on the plastic parts at the ends of the arms. The lenses are pretty much flawless.

    This is probably the most "cherry" pair of shades I own. But again: they're just not my style.

    Asking $70 shipped ConUS. EDIT: SOLD!

  4. Wish I had the scratch to buy the chads and avators. Both my style and I can't find my good sunglasses. If these are still around in a few weeks they might end up being mine.

    That's a cool trade offer, except I did just recently sell my little-used chorus pedal and am not especially missing it. :meh:

    I might have been hi-balling it a bit on the prices so I'm going to knock 'em all down a notch. The new price including shipping to the lower 48 is:

    $40 for the Clubmasters

    $50 for the Chad

    Caravan Aviators SOLD

    Trade offers will be considered.

    Do you have a case? would you do 60$ shipped to Canada?
    My old aviators are scuffed and the lens falls out all the time.
    Or, I have a Bartolini PUP with wiring and stuff to trade.
    I will Paypal 60$ if you can ship to Canada..

    I do not have an official RayBan case for any of these, though the Aviators have been living in a nice faux alligator pouch w/ belt clip which I'll be more than happy to throw in with those.

    I'll ship to Canada.

    I am primarily interested in raising funds for that Year 2008 Form 1040 I've always wanted. :spit:

    But any potentially cool trade offer is certainly welcome. I might be hunting for the stomp box version of the Turbo Tuner, a Lindy Fralin split coil J pickup (for the bridge position), the Aero replacement pickup for the Musicmaster or... surprise me. :cool:

    ... and the Clubmasters are off and away on trade. Only the "Chad" shades remain.
     
  12. Man, I really want the Chad's, but I just can't pull that one off at this time. Good luck on the sell.
