i'm so ****ing pissed. first i get an extremely well taken care of peavey classic 30. problem is i did something stupid and now i'm taking it to an amp tech.

if that wasn't it, i was going to buy and Ibanez RG1570 a few minutes ago because i barely...and i do mean barely, managed to scrap up $750 for a new one off Musician's Friend and what do i find? the ****ing prices shot up to $900! and not just there, but everywhere online.

hell next thing you know the amp tech will tell me my amp isn't salvage-able.
this week went from great to a great disaster in just a few days for me.

anyways, anyone have something go really great only to have it turn into complete disaster in a matter of moments?

Credit crunch, inflation, spiralling fuel prices, weak dollar, life, deal with it.

It's not like it's the only guitar it's happened to. Prices all across the board have been going up... except for Gibson which cut the price of the LP Standard.

Plus, we're nowhere as close to getting screwed priced wise as people in the UK...

EDIT: The 'bay saves the day yet again...
