my creamy maple neck '83 USA Strat...bit of a collectors piece...bought it about 15 years ago for $150 and I saw the identical guitar for sale at the Vancouver Guitar Show last fall and it was going for $1,200...

Re: What is the best deal you ever got on a guitar?

1987 540BC black cherry saber(3 mini sw) **dead mint** $160

AND about a yr later from the same music store I bought 2 on the same day , a near mint 1986 RG430PL (roadstar,3 singles w/edge) and a fairly rare 1987 RG440P in black. It has a 5 way switch & "vintage" humbucker and still had the extra set of arm bushings and the original "edge equiped" hang tag in the case, both guitars had the original small gray cases.....are you ready.......I got both out the door for $260, I still can't believe that one..
I went there about 3 times a week (3 mi from home) and had them call me on any old Ibanez guitars that came in, that went on for about 2 yrs....lol...man what a honey hole that store was....
(sigh) the good ol days.....

Last winter,I bought off c.list, a reissue musicyo Kramer baretta infinity sustainer w/both the feedback and sustainer functions working perfectly. It's about a 8/10 conditon guitar.
Paid $125

Re: What is the best deal you ever got on a guitar?

I exchanged an ADA MP1 for an esp m2 deluxe transparent purple with beautiful ash top.
At that time my old mp1 was about 500 dollars and that esp was about 1500 dollars.
That guy was about to get marry and said it'd be easier to sell mp1 but still he lost too much.
Guess what?
His gf was the ugliest fat japa ever!

$200 for a 1976 Les Paul Custom that the guy was going to throw away because it needed a refret. Obviously it wasn't mint but there were no cracks, breaks, or anything else major wrong with it

Re: What is the best deal you ever got on a guitar?

Oh, I forgot my other UVs-
Maybe good deals-


UV7PWH $900 in reallllly good shape with case
UV777GR $800 it look like brand new with the case
UV777BK with Pyramids NEW from GC the first year they made them
a buddy of mine got it for me with the case for $1000 NEW

I also have an orange or redish RG550 I pickup up used with an Ibanez case for $300 mint
Saber S540LTD Red mint $300

I had a GMC I got for $1700 with case, but the neck was warped so I sold it.

+1 for Elcid with 1st prize so far...$200 for a '76 LP Custom is a pretty killer deal - even if it needed a fret job....I also like sebastion's deal with the mint 550 for $300...but that's partially cuz I'm looking for a 550.....threads like this just give me worse GAS...

Re: What is the best deal you ever got on a guitar?

I also forgot to mention my recent acquisition of the LNG--the dude even flew up here to deliver it. Still doesn't touch elcid's score, though. And yeah--the Jersey SK has to be the best one ever--even if it was not under honest terms. You could say Alex got a sweet deal too by winning the contest.
