the deliverance is very nice. extremely nice.

the mg, on the other hand, is a piece of shite.

Your friend is a retard, as you've rightly pointed out, and as dev0id has rightly pointed out, whoever did the trade deserves to have a piano fall on them or something.

Oh dear.... what possesed him. Sorta wish there were more people in the world like that... would make an easy cheap deliverance!

It was a local shop owner that put it up for sale at $1200. I think it sold within an hour.

nah, don't punch him, he's suffered enough. the knowledge of what he's done will be more damage than you can ever do to him.

No need to punch in the face - He'll get what's coming to him when he tries making some good sounds with the MGstack - the realisation WILL be a punch in the face. Whlst using pianos as boxing gloves.

well you know what to do. get all your friends to boycott the shop, and get them to tell all their guitar playing friends to boycott it too.

I don't like anyone taking advantage of noobs. everyone was a noob at one point.

yeah, stuff like that makes me sad. that shop owner probably has more than enough money, while your friend is probably struggling to afford what little gear he can.

A shop employee would've either bought it themself, or called up one of their friends to buy it straight away.

That's how guitar shop trade-ins work. All the good deals will never even see the floor, an employee or their mates will have it straight away.

I agree about boycotting the shop.

there's darwinism at work for ya.
dont be angry with your friend though, if anything you should punch yourself in the face for not buying the MG halfstack yourself and trading with him.

#21
did your friend want an MG or did the shop owner foist it upon him?
#22
It went like this... Im in the back lookin at PA stuff. I came back out and he is loading up a MG. He was only supposed to make sure the vht was in playing shape. Apparently the shop owner suggested scince he didnt have a cabinet of his own. (he was borrowing mine). That he could trade it in for the Mg and walk out with the whole zakk wyde setup. He got the mg and every pedal that zakk wylde has pimped and *****d out everywhere. He was happy, i could **** myself cause i didnt know he was that stupid. I asked the shop owner if he had any morals and when he goes to hell would he send me a post card?. He told me to leave and never come back untill im huge anymore. I told him that was impossible i have to stay this big so i dont fall into his daughters gapping puss. his daughter got arrested for prostitution.

what store was this? do they have a website?
#27
It was a local store no website. I really dont wanna give out the name i think that slandering it on the internet is appropriate id rather it remain unknown. But yeah it was a hectic day. The best part was the look on his face after his family was mentioned. priceless,...
#28
that is so far beyond sleazy. what a scumbag. is the store owner known for this kind of amoral business practice?
he probably had to bite down on his tongue to keep from blurting out the scumbag plan churning in his head.

yeah, i mean hit him where it hurts, his bottom line. tell everyone you know not to go near him. He may have made a little money off this deal, but make sure he won't make any money off you, or any of your friends or family ever again. there's a price to pay for being a lying thieving scumbag.

Throw a burning MG loaded with petrol into his shop window in the dead of night. Irony makes the best weapon, I find.

that's also illegal though. i know you're only joking, but just in case we have some idiots in here (on UG? Never!), you want to make sure you hit him where it hurts, but legally. there's not much point in putting him out of business if you end up in jail...

Well yeah, that's true

Well then take an MG and a few cans of silver spray paint, spray it up, take it into his shop when there's somebody else on the counter and sweet-talk them into believing it's a Silver Jubilee. Take £500 for it, and laugh if they fall for it.

Strictly speaking that's not legal either, but then I personally can't think of a loophole in the law to exploit atm... Although I think there might be one for taking advantage of minors in a non-sexual way, but I'd have to check...

Not a bad idea tbh. A better one would be turning up in Denmark Street with a Tescos bag full of lightbulbs and a Golf Sale board shouting 'Look, it has tubes!'.

Maybe.

Or perhaps you could sue Marshall for tonal, sexual advances.

In all seriousness though, if I remember correctly from my GCSE, in the UK a contract becomes voidable if it is to the detriment of a minor in any way.... I believe this extends to fiscal matters, too. But I may be wrong.

If he's a minor, wouldn't he have a case of fraud against the shop owner? Just wondering.

Go kick him in the bollocks. Seriously. Make him infertile. I'm sure a world without his retarded offspring would do well.
