    Wow lucky dog. Yeah oak creek must have been amazing. We go to a swimming hole of 17 near sedona. It's a hour away . Here's a picture and a few sedonas when there was cloudy backdrop

    My 2 cents. If you like the guitar, keep it and enjoy it.
    If not, return it, and chalk it up to another "lesson learned".

    $475 says he will take $390

    Has mods but will include original pickup and pickguard. I may get it if it doesn't sell soon. I will give him $350 or walk and that's being generous.

    Bought this one, cleaned it up put in the KH-20 Loaded Pickguard which I bought used for $175, of course new strings and sold it last week for $600. Played and felt very good. Money goes to a PRS and / and/or Les Paul I will be getting this weekend.

    I'm on my way lol. I never see them here. There was a 2019 player series for 350 in prescott and it sold right away.
    Let us know if you get it

    I'm definitely curious about the prs stuff. I dont see alot for sale and I know even less about them. I would love a custom gibson lp. And not a epi
    But I cant justify or afford it.

    I think you did fine if it's in good shape. Many people don't realize how much prices have increased in the last year. According to sale prices on Reverb, you made out alright with a hard shell case included. Sure if you spend all day every day looking for a better deal you can find one, but the fact is $500 is a pretty standard price now.

    Just my opinion
    Ya didn't get a great deal but ya didn't get screwed either.
    Ya paid about the going price today...not 1 1/2 years ago price with a hard case.
    Play the hell outta it & enjoy yourself & you'll get your $$$'s worth

    I would just like to add that I definitely have at least one, if not 3 (or more) guitars in my collection that I paid the going rate, or more, to acquire.

    I have been selling and buying, selling off lower end stuff and accumulating enough to buy higher end stuff lately. Its worked pretty well for me.

    The current score will be

    Gibson Les Paul Modern- Faded Pelham Blue Top
    187214458_1189734721487271_2910807401702513194_n.jpg
    and
    PRS SE CU 24- Exotic ZC Natural (Ziricote)
    188028443_1189734861487257_3462814565864566095_n.jpg
    Both in excellent shape. I will hopefully be picking them up tomorrow.

    OI asked about the Silver Sky he is not sure on what he wants since he likes that one.

    Whats the solution for fret ends that stick out on the insert part?seems it would be very hard to level those without damaging the finish. On my other fender they are recessed like normal and sealed in neck. Nice ding in first fret of fretboard. 20210716_031124.jpg 20210716_025928.jpg
