    :lol: Not me! I found this at a pawn shop. Apparently these are getting to be collector's items- who knew?

    Original Fender Excelsior for $160.

    The previous owner was a Guitar Center employee who used his employee discount to purchase the already-discounted Excelsior (scratch & dent), but neglected to run it by his wife first. Without being able to return it (scratch & dent items are sold as is), he was forced to put it up in Craigslist at a loss, and I just so happened to stumble upon his ad an hour after he posted it.

    ... I made sure to run it by my wife before making the purchase :)

    Just ordered yesterday for $99 from guitar center even though I need another delay like a hole in the head.

    But discount is steep, does 28sec looping as well as delay at same time, but is one huge pedal.

    An Aria FA71 jazz guitar on E-Bay. Possibly the best guitar I ever bought, and it's my 2nd Fa71. Arrived yesterday, set up as if it was done for me. Looks like factory fresh and sounds wonderful through my Roland 60Cosm.

    Eminence lil Texas speaker for a great price off of CL. Finally got a second one for my SFTR, and the seller was a really nice guy who I hope to stay in touch with. Good deal all around!

    MIJ FSR Limited Edition 54 Stratocaster. Best guitar I own, so far. Incredible quality for $750 (got a deal, normally $999).

    Dude, I feel for you.
    I was out of work for 7 months last year and thought that was bad enough. Keep going Mr Brad, I am sure the tide will turn.

    Ok - Eddie.

    I recently bought a Dynacord Powermate PM600-3 powered mixer to replace my excellent Mackie PPM808S, which had been acting up a little. The Dynacord was very expensive indeed, but what the hell - it is absolutely superb with unbelievable clarity and phenomenal power. Meanwhile I intend to get the Mackie looked at and fixed, then either sell it or keep it as a backup - though I can't see it being needed as such.
