Ooops, I just bought a new guitar (but didn't really mean to)!

    Well, I've been thinking about selling a few guitars and adding a 335 type as I've never owned one. Had an ebay coupon to burn and have been trolling on ebay, looking at Heritages and Eastmans mostly. Threw out a few low-ball bids. Saw a Framus last night and threw out another super low-ball and surprisingly got a counter not too far off. Was thinking I just might go up a bit on the Framus when KABAMM! - I got the email I wasn't expecting: "Good News! ... You are the winning buyer for the item below. Thank you for your business!"

    I guess I'm now the proud owner to be of a nice shiny Eastman T185MX. Truly didn't think there was a chance I'd "win."

    Ebay certain is fun. And expensive. :bong

    I did what I thought was a lowball offer for a Victoria twin and won it. I was pleasently surprised.

    Can I ask how much you got the Eastman for? I've been keeping an eye out for a good deal on one of those (but evidently not watching closely enough!) PM is fine....

    Looks nice. Congrats on your accidental guitar purchase. Does that excuse really work with the wife?

    I sold one and am in the process of selling a second and likely a third. That does the trick.
