For reasons beyond the scope of this post I have not had an electric guitar for a couple years now. What makes that really odd is I have built and shipped 100's of guitar bodies all over the world in the last 10 or so years! Anyways been itching to pick up a guitar for the last couple weeks and started poking around. My financial situation is not what it once was and I decided after reading reviews to purchase a Squier Red Sparkle bullet. I went and checked one out and decided that was what I wanted. Well after the local GC screwed up my online purchase for in store pickup I went ahead and ordered one from MF for $10 less! I added 3 pairs or Ernie Ball Slinkys and a Blackstar Fly 3 for a grand total of $201.90 shipped to my door. Not sure of a better way to spend $200! Hopefully here by end of the week.
