I almost had it!!

My best friend put his Dean up for sale on ebay before I knew he was selling it. I found out yesterday. I've had a long history with this guitar as he's had it since 1985. He had a potential buyer on the line that was coming to see it. If he refused it, it was mine.............. he didn't refuse. He got it for $700, a steal IMO.

Custom build specs:
Tight flamed maple top on mahogany w/set mahogany neck
Ebony body binding
Ebony fretboard/ abalone dots
Zebra super distortion bridge (not pictured) black PAF neck
Sperzel locking tuners
OHSC

Here she is:

Re: I almost had it!!

Sure looks cool. But i have never tried out one of them. Body looks kinda big. Seems to be in good condition tho.

Deans got tons of sustain and play like butter.

That's a shame mate. Looks like a killer piece of kit.

I was inches from buying this when he had it on the bay, and had I not had three NGDs this past couple of weeks would have. Those early Deans are great guitars. Sucks I missed out, but even worse that you did!

Some best friend.... If my best mate did that to me, I'd knock him out. I'm not joking either.... If he knew you wanted it and sold it to someone else, he's a prick...

I was going to say that too. I have a friend with a particular Ibanez that I've told him "if you EVER sell this, you have to give me first option." He was best man in my wedding so he'd better!

But he's held onto it for over fifteen years so I don't see him selling unless he has another kid or something.

Re: I almost had it!!

To be fair, my buddy JCfanatic, didn't know I would want to buy it. He called me in as "backup" when this guy came out to look at it. This is when I told him that I would LOVE to own it. Of course I'd have to offer him cash and a trade....... not straight cash.

On the upside, now he feels crappy about it. Hopefully enough to trade me his untouched '01 VWH for a few of my guitars.......... Hell, he has a '10 J-custom, a '00 Jackson custom shop, an '05 2550, and an RGT to boot......... does he really need the VWH as much as I do?? LMAO!!!!
