    They are out there if you do some digging.........I know they are common, but the price?

    All the numbers check out, it has that dark forward setting, I'll probably change to standard neck-both-bridge pickup setup.

    It does have some cool brass aftermarket compensated saddles on it.

    In my local Craigslist are geniuses who think their guitars magically increase in value.

    And I mean increase, because getting 15% off at Guitar Center is pretty easy and that would make this guitar $595 at GC vs. $600 for a used one.

    WTF?[​IMG][​IMG]

    I looked at it in his garage and tried to talk myself out of it. I don't need another guitar. I was thinking it was too good to be true.

    He showed me the pictures of the neck pocket and neck numbers/stamps. Everything checks out. No case. I bought a Joyo Vintage Overdrive pedal from him and he threw in a nice guitar stand with the deal.

    Dang.

    I haven’t met up on Craigslist for years...found some good deals but my last one went sideways and I’ve always felt some sort of guilt about it after the fact.
    I sold a rocking peavey t60 to a guy in a punk band and two days later he was in the news
    He was killed in a home invasion and it was mentioned how people saw him moving into his new apt and carrying musical equipment which helped single him out.

    bad juju

    I'm still completely dumbfounded at the price you paid

    Another example of my world...selling used for more than retail.


    Yeah, I'm jealous.... Sorry.

    Congratulations. Really.
