I think I will
Why can you get this guitar and not a new amp?

Edit: and why do you have so many effects pedals?

Well, can't complain about that

The main question is do you want a telecaster? It's a fair bit different from the Schecter.

i played one, and it plays really well. that's a good price, but since it's craigslist, see if you can get a bit lower.

yes, i do ... i've played about 4 mim teles @ gc, because that was what i was looking to buy, but once i found this, for 25-50 more i could get a highway 1

i did notice that teles have thicker necks, but i have quite huge hands

also is a highway 1 much better than a mim? is the electronics better, cus i heard mims have bad electronics and pickups

Edit: the guy originally wanted 600, and said new ones were 900, but i emailed him a link to gc and they were 700, so he said he could go down to 500

if i go look at it, ill ask for reductions for any scratches and dings

Ive got an 07 one and it sounds awesome, made its way into my main gigging rig so has my seal of approval.

honestly they Highway 1 series is amazing value for money if you can get the guy down to $450 they it would be a perfect bargain but make sure it aint dented to hell, you can take advantage of the fact that nobodys buying gear and everyones selling because of the economy.

and the most important thing i would say which isnt a jab but sometime in the future try to convince the Parentals to letting you get a new amp and your pedals will sound awesome through a decent tube.

yeah, 450 was my first offer, but he says 500, but i can get a brand new one for 580, so ill try to use that to my advantage

once i get me a tele, a peavey classic 30 is next...hopefully
