    It ain't gotta be perfect, as long as it's perfect enough!

    That looks like archaeological artifact, I wonder what its provenience was.

    A pet peeve of mine, showing the case in the ad, but not including it (in the fine print.) I've also had it happen in person, buying a guitar, negotiating a price, THEN the seller mentions "case not included" when it is clearly the original case and GOES with the guitar! What's up with that? I suspect there is something deep and psychologically wrong with a person who separates cases from instruments.....maybe they dream of having their own pawn shop! (full of caseless guitars and guitarless cases......)

    Anyone else think a 1960s Gibson for $7,900 is a tad high?

    That's getting close to "Duane Eddy mandolin money!"

    I totally lost it, Jeff. The way you summed up that rant struck my funny bone; hilarious use of the English language. Lucky I didn't have a mouth full of coffee or Mountain Dew when I read that one.

    His prices always seem high. Right now he's got a Kalamazoo flat top mando for $1,392 or thereabouts. Of course, I don't know if the customs fees and all the proper CITIES paperwork is included in that price.
