    So I randomly walked into a pawn shop today, which is something I never do, but I was having a good day and I've just recently found a taker for the amp I'm selling. I wasn't expecting to find anything interesting, but lo and behold, I did. And for a great price. So I walked out with one of my long-time favourite guitarists' signature guitars :D

    It's in impeccable shape and looks like it's barely even been played. I think the owner of the pawn shop was just relieved that someone finally took the 8-string off his hands, which I was under the impression, hadn't garnered much interest. I had no intention of buying a guitar, but for the price, I figured why not!? Impulse buys FTW!

    Me too, usually. Aside from this, the only cool thing I've found in a pawn shop was about 2 years ago, a turquoise Ibanez with a maple fretboard from the '80's. I almost bought it just to flaunt its hideousness on stage as a novelty.

    Or pawned for drug money... You know the things that some people will do to get their fix. Either way, you never know, but I have definitely considered how the guitar might have ended up there :shrug:

    No video camera, and my webcam is pretty much useless :noway:
    Plus, I don't have a cab sitting under my UL at the moment and my Marshall 2x12 is at the jam space, so I haven't gotten to hear this guitar through anything but the cheapo no-name thing they had covered in magenta tolex at the pawn shop :lol:

    Great score man! Looks great. Pawn shops are great for finding deals unless you are trying to get rid of gear :) I took my Vetta2 Head into a pawn shop recently to see what it was worth...The guy offered me $60 for it. No joke. I guess he thought it was a toaster from the future or something. Needless to say I didnt take the "deal".
