Re: Look what i picked up...

It is funny that the BRMR is actually one of the less wanted JEMs.
Even on the bay (and there are plenty of stupid buyers there) they go for far less than many other JEMs.
I know 2 stores in germany who still have one and sell them off at discount prices (about 40% off), but noone buys them.

If I had the cash I would jump this deals, as I really like that guitar.
Anyone have an idea, why the BRMR seems to be so unpopular?

It was never going to sell here anyway. All that would ever happen is you getting more negative posts. When you're 30% over the money buyers will just plain ignore you.

Put it on the bay where is will sell for about $1500-$1800 instead of the one forum where you bragged about buying it for $800.

A. I wouldn't boast about the deal first.

B. I'd actualy list it for a fair market price.

C. I'd actually pay my listing fee knowing my only intent was to profit.

Re: Look what i picked up...

The price i took from it was the original price that they had at the store and I said I AM OPEN TO OFFERS In the world of business you cant go up but you can always come down and dont bs me and tell me that you guys if you had a chance to sell something and get something you would rather have and pay hardly a dime for something else you'd rather have you wouldnt do it.

As I was stating to another jemsiter, I did not know this would be such a comotion because I am on another forum where people spend about 1000 dollars on art and then due to when they receive it they decide not to want it and sell it on the "Secondary Market" for 5x what they payed for it so they can purchase other pieces they would want. I was lucky yes because it was a 3000 dollar guitar for 800 dollars and no one was buying it.

I do like the guitar, I dont see it as something i want to play tho, Id rather put up on my wall or in a case. As a display, and that is not what im looking for. I have played it i think a total of 2 times since i bought it..the day i got it, and about 2 days ago. Ive played my schecter about 4 or 5 days in a row now do to the fact i dont see it as a guitar to display, but a guitar to play.

So criticize me, ridicule me, but ask yourselves what would you do if you were in my situation...

I have to agree with you there.

Yeah, not the sharpest tool in the shed. Posting the price, than selling it. $2300, uh, ok, I'll take two!

What I enjoy more is when the noobs somehow think we have no idea what the market is for these guitars.

Let's get a classified watchdog on it.

Re: Look what i picked up...

They actually do. If the intent in to profit, you are required by the classified rules to pay the listing fee just like a dealer would

Tis why I am in favor of mandatory birth control. Try to keep the gene pool as clean as possible.
