Craigslist find

Postby Todd GT5 » Thu Nov 17, 2011 10:21 am

Hello all,
I was just looking through the Portland Oregon Craigslist musical instruments ads and found this Modulus Blackknife for $500. It seems like a killer deal, so I thought I would share. I don't know anything else about it except seeing this ad.

Let me know if anyone picks it up! - Todd

Todd, I'd love that guitar! Let me know if you can coordinate with me!

I'll paypal you the cost + pp fees + a little extra for you to treate yourself to a few beers and a burger + coordinate FEDEX to pickup from you

Let me know, please!!

Hi Strumminsix, That ad is in Portland and I'm in Bend, about three hours away. You should try to call him and see what's up. If there is anything I can do to help let me know.

Hey Strum, There are a few Portlanders here (Tiger Strat is the first that comes to mind).

You can tell him your "agent" will be picking it up! I'll bring a check for $2500.

I called him. They guy said he had a couple local offers and a guy coming to his place.

So I asked him to call me if the guy doesn't take it. In that time I coordinated with TS. Don't hear back, freak out that the listing was down. Call him back and he said it was gone. So sad. That guitar matches the early BW type that was part of the giveaway in GP magazine!

Too good to be true!

I was really hoping to do the middleman work on this, and to just hold and check out such a cool axe, despite my left-handedness preventing me from really playing it. The first 10 shows or so that I ever saw (85-87), Weir was playing an axe almost just like that one. I still remember his whammy dives on the first Greatest Story I ever saw 4/9/87.
