What is the best guitar/equipment deal that you have ever had?
I got a 2 month old Kvx10 with strap and gigbag for £240.
and I don't care if I live or die,
because I ain't ever going to no other side,
there ain't no heaven and there ain't no hell,
but I am a sinner so it's all just as well

back when I was young...er and the world revolved around teh br00tahz....I bought a really very VERY old(like late 50's/ early 60's) sunburst Fender strat and matching Fender all tube princeton TWIN with reverb and tremelo (and I have never EVER seen another amp like it internet or elsewhere) at a garage sale in unused condition for $40 NO LIE! The old woman selling it said she bought it for her son to learn on when he was 15 but he never played it and later, he never returned from vietnam. She had $80 on the rig but said she thought she would be taking advantage of me for selling me her old junk for $80.
It wouldn't do metal so I traded the whole rig off on a JCM800 head that needed tubes and a Lotus (junky) guitar. I was young and dumb and full of metal....

I bought an original Dean V for $300 Canadian, its now worth over 4K, but I stupidly traded it for a Squire strat soon after I got it cause the neck was so fat and it needed a refret, I had no idea what it was worth, there was no internet back then.

Stratman, I do believe that's 200% profit. 100% profit would be selling it for $300.

Wrong. If he sold it for 300, he would have gotten no profit at all.
