Many of you will know I want a CST and a B7, what few of you know is I was offered both. I am still waiting for a price for the CST but this is about the B7.
Thom (Uber Mega) recently contacted me and let me know that he might let his go and asked if I was keen. Well hell yeah I was , he said he would get back to me when he was ready to sell but this was before the markets started diving and the Aussie dollar was buying about 95c US. The other day he gets back to me and gives me a very reasonable price but the Aussie dollar had crashed and with customs I was looking at about $5200. I had to raise some more dollars quick so I decided to put everything up for sale.
Well the dollar has just kept on crashing at a ridiculous rate and if I was to do the deal this morning I would be looking at $6000 and these prices do not include shipping. Thom has a local buyer now and even though I hate having to let this go I can't justify spending $6000 on any guitar.
You can imagine how I feel Unfortunately this applies to any imported guitar now, a US $2500 custom would cost me over $4700 shipped to my door. There goes any nice guitar or that AXE FX I have been GASn for until our dollar recovers.
I'm really really bummed.
