Was going to buy a VK 112 from a local store so they ordered one for me,
after about a month of waiting they realized that someone accidentally sold it.
So in return they gave me a VK Halfstack for 650 dollars; the same price as the VK 212.

50$ for a American Strat, sans Neck.

bought a 22 fret Maple neck w/tuners two weeks later for 90$.

so, an American strat for 140$. i'd say that's pretty good.

I bought my Fender Pro Jr. used for $60. The bass player for my first "band" showed up to practice with it and a broken Squier bass he'd just picked up at the pawn shop. He was going to return them both when he realized that the bass had bad electronics and they sold him a guitar amp, but I offered him $60 for the Pro Jr.
