I was just looking over the new adds in the Chicago craigslist and I see this add.
http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/msg/1268177007.html For a beginners acoustic electric. That's not really what the picture looked like, so I went to check it out, since it was 1.2 miles from my place.

Things minty. Grover tuners, not the best ones but decent enough to probably sell for $50 alone. With the stand and strap. One little ding on the top of the body, noting bad. Action higher than fock, lowered it, tuned it, plugged it in... hmmm, here's $50, thanks.

pr0nz...





I don't have my mic on me but I may be able to use the computer's to make a clip. I'll try that now. I have my Da5 with me.

HNGD! Do you have any idea what model it is? I've wanted a cheap hollowbody for a while now.

Cool, Washburn makes awesome guitars. I don't understand why their resale value is so damn low

Where was it made?

Yea when I saw the add I WAS like
I'm uploading a clip I made out of a Da5, computer's mic so don't know what to expect really.
The model is a HB-15.
It sounds good unpluged.
Clipzorz... I did a special one for the br00talz fans out there. Comment, flame, enjoy!
http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/gregs1020/music/all/play656163

Not sure where it's made, no sticker that I can see or stamp. But the HB-15's are the low end of the washburn spectrum. Still a nice set neck hollow tho.

Thank you everyone!

if there's one thing i can't stand it's the back of a guitar with a burst where you can tell EXACTLY where they laid down the paper in the middle to color around. this one looks like it's the exact same shape as a guitar pick haha

having said that, i love this guitar. sweet deal for $50!!

Very nice those are the deals I love to find. Usually I would negotiate but when you find a sweet deal like that you don't want to blow it by trying to low ball it but then you have to act like you don't care. Any idea what it's actually worth? All my pricing guides are old and not a good source for prices anymore.

Thanks everyone, I just happened to be checking at the right time I guess. That and the guy was right by my place so I was probably the first to respond with, "I'll be right there". lol

Your right, you just pay the $50 and gtfo of there in a hurry. Usually yelling, "start the car! start the car!" There is another on my clist for $225, they sold for $300 ish new.

Thanks everyone, I'm digging it. I was picking too close to the bridge in the clip, getting used to this thing. It makes it rather bright, which is a nice tone in and of itself but it gets a nice deep tone picking a little further towards the neck.

That's a big problem with Craigs or most classifieds lists is how fast you can get there. I have gotten skunked a lot because of distance. The first person there with cash usually makes the deal. The only thing that pisses me off is when you go to buy something the seller doesn't call you and tell you it's gone before you drive 25 miles out of your way!

OH! I almost forgot. Sometime I can't believe people don't jump on deals a few time I called or Emailed sellers they told me I was the only one who called. I think people see a price that looks to good to be true and think it's a mistake but don't bother checking.

I got my dearmond about the same way, I was close with the cash in hand. I've learned to check on the adds like this one. There is a lot of stuff out there right now.

First. I wasn't really looking but always liked the tone they have. It's a tone I didn't have so for the price it was a no brainer.

Holy carp! Gonna check out those clips soon.

I gotta check CL more often. Congrats on the new guitar!
