    a few years ago I bought a mint 97 Uv silverdot with case and shipping for $500. I also bought a mint Danelectro 12 string electric $150.

    I've missed out on way more gear cuz I wasted time thinking about it. Like an S7420 for $400, an early 80's USA BC Rich warlock (pre-sale of the company) for $99, and most recently an RG 7621 with case for $200.

    Oh well guess I'll just keep lookin:lol::lol:

    My Jackson DKMGT's retail price is $1069 USD the last time I checked, they typically sell for $800 CAD or so, probably more since now our dollar is in the shitter. I scored mine for $475 on Ebay, but I paid half because I talked my dad into going splits on it for a graduation present.

    EDIT: Oh and how could I forget. A fully loaded Randall RM100 head would run you at least $2000USD, I got mine fully loaded for $903 CAD thanks to Boxing Week.

    A very beat up Takamine acoustic, which I still have and love today. A good friend of mine let me borrow it for a camping trip and told me to just keep it after we got back.

    I got a brand new Art300 brown Cayman from a local GC for $274... I price-matched to AMS( to grab another one) and they said they couldn't do it because it was below their cost.

    Also, not a guitar, but... got a H&K Vortex half stack for $200, sold the head for $200=free cab, used the cab on a trade-in on the above mentioned Art300, thus paying only $127 out of pocket for said guitar.

    oh and .. RG570 from Crucified for 200 CAD, but shipping was a bitch (should have packed in a smaller flat box, instead used a big amp box). Sold it to a Jemsiter in Canberra. (all up cost me 410 AUD, sold it for 500 AUD)

    MusicMan 210-HD Combo - $30 garage sale

    ive seen it go for up to $1200 on ebay, but Ive also seen them as low as $300 on craigslist.

    good deal nonetheless, had to get reverb fixed, that was $10, so $40 all in all

    I found an old beater on the side of the road once. Kept saying I was gonna do something with it, and never got around to it. Gave it to a friend of my mom's who said he refinished it and put in all new hardware and got it back into rocking condition.

    My Garrison G50 for £500 used (in mint condition). They used to retail for around 900-1000 quid. Just found out Garrison were bought out by Gibson, yuck...

    Can't remember how much it was in the end, but I definitely paid too much for my RG7321!

    I bought a Warmoth strat at pawn shop for $75. It had no decal on it, so they had no idea what it was. It had seymour duncan pickups in it, so i figured it was worth the pickups alone. I got it home and checked the neck pocket and it had the warmoth stamp. I ended up flipping it for about $400...
