    Dang, that is a bummer. Hopefully another one will show up at some point.

    I had the same thing happen to me once with a microphone. The price was too good. I spent a few minutes checking to make sure it was the value I thought it was, and when I went back to the item it had disappeared from the website!

    I would suspect that they are data mining since it's showing up on GC and MF. Basically, they are trying to gauge demand and test pricing strategies. They can see what it will "sell" for and then price accordingly.

    Spooky. Maybe a website glitch.

    UPDATE: (I know you're all on the edge of yer seats) I got to thinking about what you said about the glitch, and checked again. The guitar was still up on the used website. I tried ordering again--forget what I said about sanity--and the same thing happened again.

    I called the GC help number at the top of the screen. The rep checked, and the guitar was still there. He took my numbers, and the guitar is on its way.

    :)

    @Freeman Keller, I know you're right, and I'm not very smart buying 40-year-old guitars sight unseen. This is a "just one more" situation, I promise, on a poor-man's Holy Grail guitar. I further promise not to cry about it if the guitar goes gunnybags on me.

    @ale.istotle, great call, on the website glitch.

    @telemnemonics, is that $800 offer still good?

    That's cool! I look forward to hearing about it once you get your hands on it.

    Before I dialed the number I told Mrs. Thought I was trying to buy a guitar. Before I could answer her "whaddya mean trying" the GC rep answered the phone.

    Have I mentioned, I'm full up?

    I got a notice saying delivery is scheduled for tomorrow. Pretty quick service!

    Edit: now it's tomorrow, and I don't think it's coming today. Tracking this morning said it was in transit, in Lathrop, California, wherever that is. It's coming from the Roseville GC store. Maybe tomorrow, maybe Friday.

    I googled Lathrop. . .it's going the wrong way!

    I've been looking for this guitar for a long time.


    Edit: 37 years old, and I don't think this guitar has been played very much. Finally ol' P Thought gets a really good deal. . . ? @ale.istotle, thanks again. Your comment was exactly the nudge I needed. @bcorig, that was a classroom favorite for 25 years!

    Now, really, I'm full up!
