If it's not a fake then that's a solid deal man I've had two really good CL deals, a Crate Palomino V16 for $150 (don't have anymore though, sold it for $250 ) and a 1985 Fender Stratocaster contemporary (MIJ) with hard case for $350.

Grats, but that seems to be the going price for them used. Not a terribly amazing deal.

He means on the used market. That really is what most used pickups go for. Great deal if they haven't been installed.

I hope you enjoy them.


I found a Jackson DNKY with the hardshell case for 200. All I wanted was the case but it turned out the DNKY was in perfect shape, had sat for a few years. It had a bowed neck and all hardware was loose. Half hour of tweaks I had a perfect guitar, still have it too. (I wanted the case for my soloist)

My ESP SV-II was my best purchase though the odd thing was that the former owner owned it for a week.

It was priced $850 but I got it knocked down to a low $550.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

I got my Peavey XXX head for $400 off of craigslist.

Maybe it wasn't a super fantastic deal on it but I thought it was pretty good and it was a major upgrade from my previous amp.

Used, dumbass. If you managed to find a new one, more power to you.

Almost forgot.....

I snagged an Ibanez IC-350 for $140.

The bridge is in pretty terrible shape and needs to be replaced but I wanted an Iceman ever since I started playing and I couldn't pass on that price. I was pretty psyched.

I've never bought anything on Craigslist, but I found a massively cheap listing for an apparently god conditioned Orange Thunderverb (Which I just tried out in Samash and LOVED immensely) and an Orange Rockerverb. He was also selling a 2x12 cab and a 4x12 cab.

The Rockerverb was about $700, the Thunderverb was $900.

I didn't buy it though

I'd say what I payed for my Agile was pretty awesome..

$300 bucks for my Agile Interceptor Pro 727. It's in flawless condition. FR seems stable and fine. No noticeable fret ware, and looks beautiful. He had it 18v modded, which I like very much.. Only downside was he had a tremol-no in there, but parts of it weren't included when I bought it. He ended up losing the pieces to it after installing it and never used it.
So now it's just the claw with the arm piece.. Works perfect, just semi-annoying because I have to secure the little arm bar piece or else it clangs around. No biggie to me.

I'd also say that I got another guitar for a steal.. LTD H-100, sometime last year I believe. Payed $100 bucks for it, it was fantastic. Ended up trading it even for an Ibanez RG2EX2 which I currently own and love to death. Basically paid 100 for the LTD, and then got to upgrade to a better neck, got the ability to coil-tap, and the overall feel of the guitar is just far better.
