Mkay, long story short(cuz I know a wall of text is an immediate turn off to me when I enter a thread) I traded my heavily upgraded mustangs(65 reissue) in mint condition for a 95 MIA Strat Plus via the interwebz. From the guys not so great pictures everything looked fine and this person told me that it plays just fine and was in good condition.
Well, he was a liar and I've learned my lesson on trading over the internet. Everything is in ok condition except the neck, it has all around terrible wear with frets 1-7 having deep indentations and the rest being flattened at the top. I took it too the local shop after having to take it for a complete rewire that I did wrong and the shop owner told me it's pretty much shot, I need a new neck.
So... could anyone spare some change? I ask no more than a dollar from anyone and I'll even take any coupons that are worth 1/1000th of a cent. Any and everything is much appreciated! My paypal address is pinksalmonfamine at yahoo dot com. Yes, I expect spam, virus', maybe even ill worded letters but it will all be worth it when I'm able to play a working instrument again.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Rule: Never buy a guitar without playing it.

Why I would never buy a 2nd hand guitar online, unless it was from ebay with someone with good feedback.


You dug your own grave here.

Dude you shoulda played it and tried it out irl! ALWAYS do that before buying. Guitars are very expensive investments and you need it in your hands to make sure you want to buy it.

No offence, but sorry you're not going to get much help out of The Pit

I am at university and in a lot of debt yet I still managed to find teh monies. One key thing:

Make sacrafices. Go without something for a while and the bank balance stays in check. Money is only hard to come by if you turn your nose up to work. Sometimes you have to clean some shit filled toilets at minimum wage for a few months...

Trust me, you're not gonna find much help here. Guitars are things you want to play before buying, you should know that! Save up slowly, make sacrifices for non-essential items. Work longer hours to take your mind off your precious guitar and it will also earn you more income.
