    It's going down in three hours !!!!

    I'd love to buy it, but I'm moving and getting a tooth crowned this week so it's not going to happen.

    If I were interested but wanted to negiociate, I'd email the seller and ask if he'd consider a lower buy-it-now if it doesn't sell.

    I've saved hundreds that way.

    Tommy at The Music Zoo used to have that I believe. He wanted to send it out so I could try it, but I just wasn't in the mood at he time. Tommy is a great guy BTW

    Damn international time difference. I would have snapped that up like nobodys business. :(
    If it belonged to Jimmy Vivino at some point, it must have something going on. He appears to have a quite ridiculous collection :AOK

    I hope you got it.

    It went for the opening bid. If in any way this post helped, it would be great..that's what this board is all about.

    I really wish I had been able to pick it up, but with moving (and the tooth) it wasn't in the cards.

    Wasn't me. I've been on a guitar buying binge lately and figured it was time to chill a bit.

    Someone got a cool axe there. :cool:
