    That's my old guitar. I've been looking for it for the last 7 or so years. I misguidedly sold it back in maybe 2007, before my wife an i purchased our first house. I sold it to a younger guy who lived somewhere just outside of Houston. it's currently for sale by an individual in Dickinson, TX (just outside of Houston).

    Congrats! :)

    You give me hope about a bass that was taken from me long, long ago in Houston...

    Yeahhhh! That's great news!

    (as someone who just bought back his first Les Paul this year after 7 years of it being sold and gone, I totally get it :D)

    Well I'm glad all's well that ends well, but sweet sassy malassy that's some corrosion.

    Ha! Hilarious!

    I suppose there's no rules or dibs, when it comes to this stuff, huh? Hahaha. Damn.

    Nice SG btw. Still. LOL.

    I decided to back off. I sold my favorite bass, a Mike Lull prototype that I'll never get back, to put my child into preschool. Now that I have the means to get it back I'll probably never find it and Mike doesn't build them like that anymore. So I know what he was feeling. I'm looking at a modern SG standard for $800.

    And I appreciate it greatly. I passed up buying back my old 70s white tolex Marshall 4x12 a few months back when it showed up halfway across the country on eBay and have kinda been kicking myself ever since. When this showed up I knew I wasn't gunna let fate walk right by me again.
