I like to say guitars are easy to buy, hard to sell. Rastro64 wrote:Much less time than it takes to sell one

Turns out I found the same guitar dirt cheap online in another country. So I ordered it. With shipping it was 1/3 the price of the one in my local store. Price was the reason I was hesitant to begin with, so when I saw the same thing on the bay at such a low price, I went for it.
Usually though, I play it for a couple of days in the store before I buy. There isn't a big demand for CG where I am so I tell the shop owner to call me if anyone comes in looking to buy one that I am seriously interested in. At my favorite shop, I can buy and then have 30 days to make up my mind as to whether or not to keep it and really try it at home. That's in case of buyers remorse.
There is also something called seller's remorse. This happened to a person I know who traded her Ramirez in to our favorite local dealer. She really wished she wouldn't have sold it, but by the time she got around to buying her guitar back from the dealer, I had already bought it. I mean, I discovered her Ramirez the evening before around closing time, and I was back the next day, before they opened. That was the fastest I've ever bought a CG. I played it for ten minutes and I knew it was "the one". That was after the store had closed, and I came back the next morning with my Les Paul in tow and traded straight across for it. It is the best CG I have.
I just want to say Hi to a proud owner of an Almansa 457, being a new owner to a used one circa 2006!Norman2 wrote: ↑Sat Mar 18, 2017 2:33 pmHi, It took two weeks to do the research and finally decided on an Almansa 457 , Solid Cedar top, solid indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fingerboard, Schaller tuners and built in Spain. I found one used at guitar Center in like new condition and bought it for $800.00. The guitar arrived in excellent
shape and it was and is like new. Beautiful instrument, sounds amazing so i think I was lucky. Will not be buying another one in the near future.
