Boy, I took a bath on this one when I went to sell it a year or two later.
Well if you makes you feel any better I did pretty much the exact same thing. Just this week I bought a American Ultra Telecaster in Texas Tea. Should be here this coming Monday.
I played guitar in elementary school but not much after. Last year I had a pretty serious health scare which motivated me to do some things I've wanted to do before I up and kick the bucket, like finally learn to play guitar beyond what I learned 35 years ago.
Interestingly, many of my impulse buys that I then regretted and returned or sold... ended up getting more valuable fairly fast!
UGH... it's my specialty... buy high, sell low....
A $7500 ‘56 Chevy project car on eBay, there were 18 bids then at $6500 but the BIN price was still up.
My wife said just buy it!
So I did.
After working on it off and on for seven years I came out two grand ahead on my ‘56 Chevy. No comment about how much I spent on the parts I put into it.
Better return than beer!
I bought a used pedal after trying it with an Epi 335 Pro, returned the pedal and bought the 335, then returned that as well.
Where did you bury the body?
We might be related.
I ended up with an under-gravel and a hang-on-the-back of the tank filter.
Me too!I even already owned the reagular MXR phaser and other phasers.
Sure it is.
I bought a ‘77 911S in ‘84. I was looking for a car to Rallye and came across this and bought it on the spot. Seller had it on the market for about 35% below market value. He said for me to take it my mechanic, if it didn’t pass muster (and I didn’t wreck it) he’d refund my money
As I drove it into my mechanics shop I head, “Dude, if you bought that you may have the best ‘77 in Dallas.” We had the same mechanic
I tried to drive the wheels off of that car. Did pylons on an abandoned airfield, ran the back roads at Lake Travis, and thoroughly enjoyed that car.
Finally sold it after I moved to the Caribbean (thought about bringing it down here but our roads would just tear it up), made a nice chunk of change, and often wonder what its story is
I don’t have any surviving pictures but I can close my eyes and feel going into a power slide around a pylon and redlining to the next.
Oh, to be young and foolish, again
I bought a Fender Roc-Pro halfstack in installments for something like full retail when I was a teenager, because I didn't know better. It was just a halfstack that had Fender on it. I can't even imagine what I could have bought used with that same money at that time. It was loud and that was cool. Live and learn!
I was driving into work one day and something in my head said “I would really like to have an E-Bow”. Went to a music shop the next weekend and bought one. That was 25 years ago. I still have it but it’s never been seriously used — I sometimes take it to rehearsals and try to work out how to get it into a song but the only time it ever gets used is if we’re messing with playing “Heroes”, and then I play rhythm and lend he E-Bow to one of the other guys to have a go at the Frippy bits...
It actually gets worse. I meant a gravel vacuum. Two weeks of research for plastic tubing connected to a plastic tube.
If you got the bucks... why not? As long as your family aren't starving.
For me it's my Am Pro Strat, which I used to try out some amps, and I ended up buying an amp that day (I think it was the Katana 50, which has since been replaced by the Mustang LT25 and THR10C), and I also bought the Pro, which I still have and cherish.
Most of my impulse buys look something like this.
I may have impulse purchased these as well:
