Nevermind. Listing it was a bad idea. I guess I'm just desperate and I don't feel like I can play it enough or well enough to just have it. I never meant to brag when I fist posted, it was more amazement that I would actually have a guitar this nice. Didn't mean to upset me rukind friends and I feel about 2 inches tall now. Sorry.

To each their own, but trying to sell a guitar you paid $2000 for $3500-3250 about 2 weeks ago to a bunch of folks that watched it all go down is pretty bad form.

"buyer's remorse is one thing, turning a profit on it is the American way!"

Like I said, to each their own... Good luck.

I don't mind you swooping in and grabbing a great guitar and trying to turn a profit, but just don't brag to us about it first.

Honestly, if I were you I'd either:
1. Try to trade it to someone here for a guitar worth $3300
2. Put it back up on eBay with a longer buy time and a BIN

Again, no issues on my part with the profit but it's tough to see that asking price after reading of the steal.

It's too nice?

I may be interested in a trade. Are you open for trades?

It happens to us all and will again. No worries, broesau!

In fact I almost got pissy in a thread about no price on something in the garage sale area recently then realized I tossed feelers out on something not long ago too! :lol:

It happens, it happens! Be well, homey!

You're selling it for a fair price... it just happens to be to a fairly close-knit group of people who know you bought it for an unfair price. :lol: I can't begrudge anybody a little honest capitalism.
