Talking Do you guys believe in fate or luck?

What ARE the chanced of actually finding an Ibanez 1077XL 7 String in blue with an original case and in all original condition at a pawn shop? I could hardly believe it when I saw it. I have been wanting one of these for years, every since I discovered Alejandro Silva. I put that sucker on layaway, but only after I had them take $100 off the price.

Re: Do you guys believe in fate or luck?

When I lived in Japan in the early 90s, I snagged an ESP Navigator at a pawn shop for about $150.00
About 6 months later, and from the same shop--got an RG550 DY for $175.00

Well, I certainly do not believe in spoonerisms.

To answer the body of the OP: Congrats!

Air Force, bud. That was near the beginning of my long service--and it was my first assignment. Loved that place!
It was also great for finding cool Godzilla toys.

How much are you getting it for?? Did they know what it is? or are they just assuming it's another "pointy Ibanez".....LOL.

Talking Re: Do you guys believe in fate or luck?

They had it marked $899, but took off $100 AND the tax without blinking so they must have done a LITTLE research. Not to much though, or it would been $1000 or more and no discount. $800 out the door with original case and all original configuration is pretty decent. There it only one bad spot on it on the bottom edge, otherwise the shape is good overall. It is dirty though, very dirty.

Re: Do you guys believe in fate or luck?

luck - not sure - My dad on the other hand when he was my age - he bought a Gibson custom for about 50euros from some live gig. The guitar is heaven, btw happy 32nd anniversary ...

I desperately want to change the pups but He doesn't let me its just the way it was...
probably worth 4-5K max
