    Thats a winner for sure. Sell the amp and get a midnight wine MIM strat with maple fretboard for 160 or 170 or whatever...

    I emailed the seller. Offered him $150 for just the gee-tar. Let's see what he says. :)

    What I find most annoying is that so many people can't be bothered to post "Sold" once that has happened. Why would anyone want to continue getting inquiries about something they no longer have? Are they trying to be jerks?

    I'm ok that some people don't know what they are selling, sometimes you can get a great deal that way.

    I was not very optimistic I would get the Penco when there was no response in the first couple of hours after I offered the asking price. The seller ended up selling it to someone else, but at least this time, I got a notice it was gone.

    I walked away from the "apps" for a couple of weeks - yesterday I fired up the tablet and took a look - postings that were a year old - your right - not removing a CL ad or letting a offerup or letgo ad linger is frustrating - again - younger irresponsible people !

    I don't have nearly as many guitars as some of you guys but I do have too many. It limits my time playing. I don't need any more right now. I just have most guitars setup for special use. Open tunings, slide etc. Plus I need to spend any extra cash on better tuners, parts and such.

    Pawn shops and Craigslist are what kills me.. I got 2 on layaway at the moment at pawn shops lol. The first day I got offerup I found a month old add for my newest NGD. I have a problem. ...I really do just ask my wife lol.. It seems that it pains me to walk away from a great deal on a guitar..

    I agree. When a guitar is being sold for 25% of it's value, it's hard to walk away from. Worst comes to worst, I flip it for a small profit after playing with it. :)

    Why can't women be like guitars? Get the sweetest one you can afford. Play the heck of it. Trade it in for a newer model when you're bored ???

    I resisted buying a Epi Special I P-90 TV-Yellow for myself for Christmas. I have been humoring myself by tweaking the setup on my existing project guitars. For now I've warted off a major GAS attack.. Platefire

    The force is strong with that model - I've been resisting myself ! ! I keep telling myself that one will come my way used " down the road " !
