Here it is bitches....
First you have to endure the story.
As some of you may or may not know, I buy and sell ALOT of gear, and sometimes I come across some pretty good deals.
Well my local Guitar Center had a used '94 Jimi Hendrix Limited stack (purple tolex, only 100 in the US) and it has been there a long time. Anyway, I was chatting with the store manager back in early November and he mentioned that the Jimi had to go, and GC was going to have to take a loss on it. I told him (half joking) that I would pay $XXXX for it and we chuckled about it.
The following week, I get a call from the same store manager wanting to know if I was serious about buying the stack. He went on to tell me that if I could wait until December, he could absorb the loss and I could have it.
Well I was supposed to pick it up tonight, but I got a call this morning that another salesperson had seen the markdown and sold it first thing this morning.
I was NOT a happy camper about 11 am this morning. However, I like to think that everything happens for a reason, and what goes around, comes around.
The manager felt terrible, and he called me this afternoon and wanted to know if I would take a '05 40th Anniversary JTM 45/100 stack for the same price!
Needless to say I jumped on it.
This is all I could get before the camera died.
For those that don't know, this is THE Marshall reissue to have. Only 250 ever made worldwide.
