So right from the start it was a gamble but I managed to pull it off so I'm pretty happy with myself, and with the guitar of course... it was definitely worth the risk.
Jay later told me that he was averaging 10-12 inquiries a day about this guitar... and I'd imagine he even began to question his selling price.
I almost dropped the hammer, but me wifey dropped the ball wrecker.
