...why could you have made this into a signature model? :yum:
Ahh he Mentions Vic DePra
I also am this type of guy, but I am also usually on a strict budget. I try out whatever I can, but the bulk of my guitar purchases come from Used.guitarcenter.com or musicgoround.com. guitarcenter's used site is a blessing to me, because half the employees are too lazy to look up the value of anything and you can really find some stupid good deals. As an example, I payed $450 for my Gibson V with gigbag, I payed $250 for my Schecter PT goldtop, I payed $850 for my Mesa, about to pay $199 for a Hamer Vector XT. I can't find deals like that anywhere else, no where local, and not even ebay has deals like that usually. I guess I don't feel so bad because I know any guitar I purchase would be traded to someone rather than sold if I don't like it.I am too - that is why I balk at buying them online without trying one first.
