    If that is a bargain even in $ terms then it is a total giveaway in £

    Take more pics once you've got it up and running. I mean looks good already but y'know.

    Absolutely sensational!

    Pawn shops around me are either far too optimistic in their pricing, or have the worst guitars, that are so bad I almost want to buy them.

    At the moment, my favourites are a Japanese flag Dean monstrosity, and a Les Paul ripoff, decorated in the style of Smirnoff vodka. No words I use will do it justice, it really is incredible. It's like clip art screenprinted onto it. It's like a liquor store advert.

    Bloody hell next they'll be selling one of a kind CS guitars for £179, where do you live??!! And please don't tell me Big Fat Baja Heaven as these deals do sound to good to be true, the kind that would only turn up on some heavenly realm (AKA Big Fat Baja Heaven). :D

    Do you have your hand on the inside of your jacket and sort of "convince" them, to sell anything of interest for £179 to you? :D

    Beautiful! Nice find, the Custom is high on my wish list -- and that finish / neck combo would probably be my favourite.

    Absolutely gorgeous! The problem I find these days with pawn shops is that they have access to the Internet! IME Gone are the days when they price things without really knowing what it's worth ☹️ Maybe you have found a PS that either doesn't have the net or just cant be bothered to look? Congrats anyway... And keep it to yourself!
