At the Larchmont NY GC:

Collings I-35 Deluxe hanging alongside the used Mexican Strats and Jay Turser Guitars. I bought that.

Last week a Gadow Nashville and a Zinky Blue Velvet.

I found a couple of Fender Classic Player 60s Strats for $250 a piece with a HSC for each. No issues other than some tarnished frets that were easily remedied with steel wool. Probably the best luck I've ever had at that store. (Tempe, AZ)

My 1975 Martin D-35. $1100. A little abused, but cleaned up nice. I use it for sessions almost every day.

I walked into a GC at lunch...started talking to this young sales kid,,,this kid NEW his gear...we talked for a good hour and I was humbled and intimidated by his formidible knowledge on amps, pedals, guitars, vintage instruments, resale value...etc..

I left, went home, got some duct tape, rope, and a large potatoe sack...went back to GC and kidnapped this kid...took him home and he is currently locked in my basement...he HAS to be worth something, as rare as he is...craigslist might be the place to sell him

Peavey XXX combo right after they discontinued them. Still have it. GC is the place to go for used combo amps and cabs because you can't afford to sell/ship them on ebay anymore and they wind up at GC cheap.

I know this will be sure to generate controversy, but.....

A blue sparkle Ed Roman Pearlcaster. Given Ed's extreme hatred of GC, it was kind of ironic to see one of his instruments in one.
