Steal of the century?

I just bought a JEM77BRMR for $850. A few scratches and chips here and there, but honestly they're too minor for me to care about them. What do you think?

Someone got a mint DNA from me in a no reserve auction a few months ago for $5,250. I'm still smarting from that one. At least I only paid $4,000 for it. Your BRMR is a better deal on a percentage basis though, congrats.

I'm still waiting for a '58 or '59 cherryburst Les Paul at an estate sale for five hundred bucks . . .

Re: Steal of the century?

I think I remember some guy on here that acquired TWO RG565s at like $75 a piece or something. Ridiculous.
