    S*<k!

    At the beginning of summer I bought a 330 from a guy on CL for a really great price. It was from Memphis so it should have had a CoA but it wasn’t in the case.

    I asked about it and he told he would try to find it. Our kids went to the same school maybe he could get it to me.

    By the time summer ended I had written it off. I had his number but didn’t want to bug him. It was a great price. Maybe I’d gotten it 3rd hand or maybe by slight of hand.

    Today I did one of my regular CL searches for Gibson and came across a note saying “hey guy that bought my Gibson hollow body I found your CoA. Contact me”

    We just meet up and everything went smooth. After 4 months I’m not sure I’d have went through the trouble he did to get it to me. People can be good.

    Nice when the story has a good ending.

    I just bought the same guitar in satin black. How are you liking yours? Was it a good value for the price?

    I got it for $700 with case. So for the price it is amaaaaazing.

    It’s a great guitar. As a rule I don’t love neck binding but the rolled binding feels real good.

    The volume knobs are a little far away but that’s part of the charm.

    The burst buckers might be a little hot but I’m sure I’ll work them out.

    Unplugged it’s pretty great. Hollow bodies rock. I haven’t had problems with upper access. I guess I don’t play up there too much.

    That is a great deal. I'm really digging mine!
