I agree with cid's point - it's kind of weird to hear someone get excited about a great deal, but not really dig what he got the deal on.
Please read the post above Cids. It will explain what I meant.

The guitar is great, I will be holding onto it for a while.
I played it all night when I got home from work. And then woke up at 4:30AM today, and went straight to the case took it out and played it somemore.

"AHHHH, I understand" said the blind man. I just didnt get the whole being excited about the thing if it was only bought to get rid of it. It's definately a great guitar man.

Apparently I have commited some form of Faus Paus.
I apologize profusely for saying I would probably sell it in a week.

I love the guitar, I think it is fantastic. But what may happen is what happens to other members of Jemsite. Sometimes you purchase something and in a few weeks or months you get GAS and start looking for a new toy.

I should not have put "I'll probably sell it in a week".

One again I apologize for offending.

It is cool man, but if you plan to sell it in a week, whats the big deal even having it? It's not like you wanted one forever and finally got it. You happend on a good deal and will sell it for a profit. That's cool and all, but not HUUUURAAAHHHH worthy.

So tell us the price and if it's low enough, I'll give you a good deal.

Re: I picked up a new toy

I'll probably sell it in a week. I have to fly to Odessa, Tx. on Tuesday. And I will post it here on Jemsite as soon as I get back in town. I'm not really 7 string guy.
But it was a great deal so I had to get it. And I was proud of it so I wanted to share with you guys.

I will in turn not gouge anyone when I sell it. I have been watching "My Name is Earl" , and I want to make sure I have "Good Karma". Just in case I ever win the lottery.
