I had this old pedal that I got for free in about 1992. It was a DOD 595 Phasor and sat unused in my closet pretty much since I got it. So I was cleaning out some old stuff when I came across it, and I was struck with an idea. Let's see what I can turn this old pedal into that I would actually use. How about a Les Paul? I was able to sell that pedal for $60. I took $50 of that and bought an almost unplayed 1983 Washburn on ebay. Then I flipped that for $180. Up to $190 now. Next I used $150 of that to buy an Ibanez Hollowbody. Great condition and didn't even know until I went to pick it up that it came with a hardshell case and Roland Microcube. Sweet! I flipped that one for $250, plus $100 for the case and $50 for the Roland. With the left over $40 from before, I am up to $440. I used $300 of that to buy an Epiphone Riviera P93 that I sold for $380. With the $140 in cash still, I'm up to $520. So I saw that there was a blowout sale on 2013 LP Studios for $599. I ordered one in Black. Well the next day I got an email saying that they were out of stock and unlikely to be getting anymore. I noticed though that they had a mint condition 2013 in Vintage Sunburst and asked if I could get that at the same price. No problem. Well it arrived and indeed it was in absolutely new condition. One thing though, it was actually a 2012. I called them up to see what they could do for me and they knocked off $75. So I am now the proud owner of a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Studio that cost me exactly $4.
