Re: Which one would you choose?

I picked the horus since I find the SK ugly and the VSBL a bit too overpriced for a used model (it's not THAT rare).

Well, I would definitely go for the SK at $1600 for a collector condition one is an bargain! SK hands down, no questions ask. Even if ya didn't like the SK after a few months, you would be able to sell it on for alot more than $1600.

Go for the SK, and if your girlfriend gets pissed off at you, tell her "You don't own me, I don't see no ring on this finger"

Unless you guys are married, she has no say about what you do with your money (unles she's buying of course).

Yeah But then she'll leave him and she'll want half. Of course he might have already made her go oooooohhhhhh, in that case all is well.

VSBL, it seems that they appear less on the bay. Not lately, but over all. I'm biased, the VSBL is my favorite guitar. Grab it when you can.

SK, VSBLs aren't that interesting to me and I don't get caparisons

Every time you buy a caparsion, a keebler elf is killed in the process. Is that something you want to live with?

Certainly would not bother me, as it would not bother many others either. I would dedicate a song the Keebler elf onstage with my Caparison though
