Nice! I miss pawn shops and small used guitar stores that actually had deals like this. $150 is less than you'd pay for just the pickups now :lol:
It didn't have a price on it, so when he went in the back to ask "his guitar guy" I expected him to come back with $600 or so, which would be a bit high for the location but not insane - everything else was priced about like that.

When he said $150 it took everything I had to look doubtful about buying it and mull it a bit. It was dirty, but not torn up.

Wow!! 150$ for mop sharkies, not bad!! And they're not even upside down. How much was the American series again?

Seriously though, congrats, that's a sick deal, and that finish is cool.

It's possible to find nice Japanese made Jacksons/Charvels around here but for anything with sharkies people ask like 1300€ and up.

Iirc HIV survives ~3 minutes in open air (don't test it on yourself with a timer, but you get the general idea)

Very few things can actually be caught from inanimate objects.

Sick! I always wondered if it would ever be worth going into pawn shops in VA. I have a dream of finding a Washburn Dime Boogiebolt since I foolishly sold mine when I was broke in college. I don’t even know where any are near me.

It's useless in NoVA. I was down at Lake Gaston, and hit one in Roanoke Rapids, NC.
