Holy hell, I scored a MAXXAS!!!

There it was! On the 'bay! A 1987 Maxxas MX-3! Cranberry Red! It's from someone in the USA! I screamed! My wife said "What?"! I yelled "There's a F**kin' Maxxas on the 'bay!"! She said "Then buy it, dummy!".

This is SO worth letting the PGM900 go.

Jack, can I visit your mansion and maybe sleep in your smallest room (which is probably larger than my apartment)? I promise I'll only play the Jem 20th you're using as a coffee table.

Now, now. I'm not wealthy. I just used the cash from all the guitars I sold over the last two weeks. Plus, and sacrilege being executed here, I'm not a fan of Jems, honestly.

Didn't you plop down $20k last year on guitars? Was that all proceeds from stuff you flipped? In Texas $20k is like half a years salary at a decent job. When I blow part of an income tax return on a $2000 computer or guitar, that's a once a year thing.

Wait a minute...

*Looks around at all the guitars he owns sitting there gathering dust*

Maybe I should sell some guitars...

Grats, btw.

Congratulations man, nice guitar!

Nearly my 2 year anniversary with my MX-3, and they are super guitars.

That was all from a bonus from my job. This time I sold 7 or 8 mostly high end guitars (a PGM10th, PGM200, PGM900, RG565, RG55020th, a trade with a JCustom 8427 for a guitar and cash, etc) so I built up some good cash. Plus, I wanted a Fireman last year, dammit. :P

I'm just joking with you. It's really none of my business. I think its cool you were able to sink that much cash into guitars and equally cool that you were able to amass so many high resale value specimens.

Is it true there were only a couple hundred of these made? That's an insane find my friend! Congrats.
