Talking I picked up a new toy

I stopped at a the House of Guitars here in Houston today, with no intentions of purchasing anything.

But as I was walking out the door....."BAM". I spotted an Ibanez Universe and the price on it was retarded.
I asked the sales person if the price was correct, and he said yes.

I wont put what I paid, but lets just say, I felt dirty when I walked out. LOL

Come onn Be smug.

If you want to sell it on that's your decision, as is the price you advertise it for.

Tell us! I love it when people get a bargain

Re: I picked up a new toy

I'll probably sell it in a week. I have to fly to Odessa, Tx. on Tuesday. And I will post it here on Jemsite as soon as I get back in town. I'm not really 7 string guy.
But it was a great deal so I had to get it. And I was proud of it so I wanted to share with you guys.

I will in turn not gouge anyone when I sell it. I have been watching "My Name is Earl" , and I want to make sure I have "Good Karma". Just in case I ever win the lottery.

No fish story. I was excited about the deal I made on a great guitar and thought I would share it.

I guess because I have owned ESP's Kami's and Hammett's and Les Pauls, but this was my first Universe, so I thought it was cool.

Re: I picked up a new toy

So tell us the price and if it's low enough, I'll give you a good deal.

It is cool man, but if you plan to sell it in a week, whats the big deal even having it? It's not like you wanted one forever and finally got it. You happend on a good deal and will sell it for a profit. That's cool and all, but not HUUUURAAAHHHH worthy.

Apparently I have commited some form of Faus Paus.
I apologize profusely for saying I would probably sell it in a week.

I love the guitar, I think it is fantastic. But what may happen is what happens to other members of Jemsite. Sometimes you purchase something and in a few weeks or months you get GAS and start looking for a new toy.

I should not have put "I'll probably sell it in a week".

It was done in a self efacing way, because I have a tendency to get bored with something or get GAS.

One again I apologize for offending.

"AHHHH, I understand" said the blind man. I just didnt get the whole being excited about the thing if it was only bought to get rid of it. It's definately a great guitar man.
