Just too damn busy to search the 'obscure' sites I used to make a living picking. Most of my purchases are offered to me email anymore. Pay a little more, but i just don't have the search time I used to enjoy. Not like I still don't make a few finds, but you hard surfers now have an advantage over me. I found your BFP, right after you bought it LOL

$700 for a mint BFP sheesh!

I bought mine new in Mass. *for $1260 (inc case and delivery to NYC) in 1992.

(sorry for the off topic post!)

so a vwh for $895, hmmm, add on $400 bucks for a swirl finish and you are there!

:biggrin:

I bought my used 7VWH from a listing in Harmony Central in 1999 w/ohsc for $800. I still pat myself on the back for finding that deal. I was prepared to pay upwards of $1100.

Long time lurker - I'd say I qualify; I've had my eye on that model since it came out! *Lowest I could talk a dealer out of a new one was for $1500, probably could've got him to come down some if I had tried harder - I was just waiting for the right deal 'n she was it.

I have to confess, she gave it up on the first night - LOL.

I've played & have lots of floyds, but the fine tuners on this one are great + the locking screws don't seem to be gunked up like the non-gold units tend to get.

I cleaned up the neck last night, now I've got to get it setup - I'm fairly new to the south bay/san jose area, can anyone refer me to a great set up guy??

*thx for the welcome * = ]
