    So far so good peeps. No purchases for all of 2022. :)

    I sold off a bunch of stuff since the new year ... almost $1500 worth of gear. Smokes. hard to believe how much was accumulated.

    I still have 20+ guitars. I have 3 more up for sale on FBM ... though I'm not sure I'm gonna be able to get down below 17, because I "need" all those models. :)

    I was thinking of taking a road trip this weekend to snag a Schecter C-1 Platinum. 4 hour drive each way. But I think mother nature is telling me to stay put.... 14 inches of snow in the forecast. Yikes.

    I came close to pulling the trigger on a 5150 lunchbox. But it'll wait. I'm gonna have to make due with what I have for the moment ... which is more than enough. ha ha

    I have a micro Diezel on the way ... but it was ordered before the new year, so that doesn't count. ha ha

    Other than that, I've been guitar sober all year. :)

    14 inches of snow forecasted? 4 hour drive each way? The answer is clear.

    :D

    Michigan Farmers sell guitar straps? Are you sure they're not small livestock harnesses?

    I highly advise it @Eddie. Here's my Shecter C-1 Platinum Hellraiser. This guitar is made exceptionally well. The Tuners, The Stock EMG Pickups, *The Set Neck (It Maybe a Neck Thru Also), The String thru body. No expenses were spared on this baby, I do believe mine is Korean too. A work of Art. I paid $490 Total in May of 2020.

    PS Wow, Looking at the neck, I believe it just may be a Neck Thru, I have to research it.

    Further yes, it's made in South Korea.

    Yes, I want one !!! The seller in RI is asking $275. I may offer $250. But it's a 4 hour one way drive. While I'm up there, I'd snag the Yamaha THR 10x amp as well. Long drive for gear. Plus, with snow on the way .... :(

    I may hold off for another week. Maybe he'll be more willing to accept less if he's been sitting on it awhile ... though, I run the risk of someone buying it before I can get to it.

    Yeah, I know this guy. He picked up a HB Explorer from me about 2 years ago, and I picked up an Agile 7 from him last month.

    The only issue with his guitar is that the EMG's were removed ... and those are worth probably half the guitar.

    Without the EMG's, his price isn't worth it. A new one is going for $430 at GC.

    Something my son always claimed as I complained about his loud screaming "music" Did I mention he plays his mp3's through my Fender 100 watt tuber sitting on a Marshal 4x 12 so he can hear it whiles he pounds the bass through his little 450 watt Beringer. But at least he's calm

    Eddie look for a C-1 Platinum FR Sustainiac, hold out and you can pick one up for $5-700. These will chug to high heaven I was playing mine last night check out the new Headrush Pedalboard and the Headrush FRFR-112 I picked up used last night.
