Gonna sell a bunch of guitars...for real reals this time!

There's just too many. I bought all those old Ibanez and it dawned on me I had, for lack of better terms, a "midlife guitar crisis"...just snagging all the ones I couldn't get as a poor college student. I'm sure the consensus will be "Oh, that Jack...doesn't know what he wants or his wife will talk him out of it again". Well, we talked and really all she wants is be to be happy so I'm gonna do the super sale this time.

Question is...you guys want first dibs or do I go straight to the 'bay this time? I'm selling off 25 guitars. Some will surprise you. There's one with a II in the model name and I don't have any Destroyers or Rocket Rolls so you can guess what it is. No pm'ing trying to jump the line, kids. I'm in writeup/photo taking phase right now. Just testing the waters if you guys want first crack or I go right to the 'bay because the last few times here haven't really worked out the best for me. Post your opinions.

Any chance of that "crisis" was so strong it gave you a weird desire of donating some of them ?!

Sorry I couldn't resist lol

It would be nice to have first crack, but we Jemsiters can be very fickle LOL!

Actually, I'm going to. There's a guitar club at my niece's high school so I'm gonna give them the ones not worth putting up for sale like a chewed up '86 Roadstar and a Ergodyne bass. 2 or 3 for sure. Still playable but not worth the trouble to list.

Fickle like a young woman determining if she should give a horny young man a taste of the goods, as it were. :P

Pfft. Roadstar II wouldn't be worth mentioning to the Jemsite crowd. When the list is done, it'll either start here of the 'bay. People here know my collection so I'm gauging the wantingness. They will also know the II I speak of.

Re: Gonna sell a bunch of guitars...for real reals this time!

I would... but we got baby #1 coming and I'm selling a bunch of my own.
But hey, if you want to hold a PGM in the closet or something for a few years a brother would appreciate it!
Seriously, though, I know how you feel. I went on a buying binge a while back and I think a lot of it had to do with looking at that 1991 catalog when I was a poor kid and wishing.

Re: Gonna sell a bunch of guitars...for real reals this time!

540PII is my guess. Yeah, give us a shot at them at least. They can't be here and there at the same time, so let the Jemsiters get first dibs, then the rest go to the bay.

Re: Gonna sell a bunch of guitars...for real reals this time!

I say give us at least a few days to grab them. See what sells here right away, then move the rest to ebay if you feel that is best.

Re: Gonna sell a bunch of guitars...for real reals this time!

Sweet Jesus, it's true. I just bought guitar boxes! No turning back now...I'd just get stuck with guitar boxes! LOL!

Well, since they will be here tomorrow, I guess the list will go up tomorrow.

The JCustom and PGM90th already have gone to the 'bay since there were no offers or questions, really. Yeah, I priced them high to start but would have come down a few hundred on each but no one offered anything good anyways.

No need for further posts. I'll give you Jemsite brothers a shot first.
