    NGD (Cheap Beater Content)

    Scouring eBay to find a cheap guitar I can leave at my girlfriend's place, I found this with a stupidly low starting bid. I stuck it on my watch list, waited for the last few seconds and stuck in my bid, winning it for a whopping £24. That makes it probably the cheapest guitar I've ever bought. It's a Pacifica 112, so it's a solid guitar, if nothing to write home about. It's had a hard life, there's plenty of dings in the body which is why I got it so cheap, and the previous owner added an "interesting" selection of stickers. I'll be removing all of those in the coming days and giving it a bit of a clean up. It could probably do with a fret dress as there's some grooves in the frets, so I might grab some fret files and have a go at learning how to do it myself.

    I'm so metal I shit bats

    Those are solid instruments. A little TLC will go a long way.

    Damn. Nice find.

    And I have to say, that's a killer-looking guitar. Stickers don't even bother me. Just something about it says, "let's fucking rock."
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    They are. This is (I think) my 3rd rosewood boarded 112, plus I've owned a maple boarded one and a 312

    I'm a bit on the fence what to do with it, but part of me has wondered about taking these stickers off and replacing them with some that are more relevent to me

    This looks like one of those guitars that turns out to play better than half of the ones at your house, so it ends up coming home anyway because it needs to be near the TV. Nice score.
