    This one was a real pain to acquire. The seller wouldn't take paypal ("it's for scammers") and wouldn't ship...hell he wouldn't even accept a deposit to hold the guitar. Fortunately over the last 20 years of collecting I have met some great people and I was able to call in a favor.

    I Fed Ex'd the agreed upon amount to my buddy, plus a nice kicker for my buddy grabbing the guitar for me. Next problem - the guy decides he needs more money than we agreed to for the guitar. I almost blew the deal off but I ended up paypal-ing my buddy more money to get it done at the new agreed upon price.

    Then, I noticed he posted it on craigslist for "best offer" after we had a date / time set up to complete the deal. I emailed him through an account he wouldn't recognize to see what he was up to. He said he had a "standing cash offer of (our agreed upon price)" and asked if I wanted to beat it. Unbelievable. Dude was a complete scumbag but fortunately the exchange occurred and here she is...

    I get depressed every time I see one as they just get more and more expensive.. One day I shall own one. ATD swirl is the best.

    Nice one! I always liked the blacker ones. Sound like you rescued this fine instrument from a real assclown. Kudos!:metal:
