    I had the pleasure of visiting a guitar show in the north east of the UK today and spotted a Gibson LP std (58 I think?)for sale for £149.000. The stand it was on had a Music Ground sign on it.
    I did think that if we sold the house and bought a tent to live in,I could have bought it. :)

    Possibly a relevant question may be, why are these convicted criminals allowed to advertise and sell at a so called 'respectable' Guitar Show?

    If the name "Music Ground" appears anywhere near a transaction then I can only stress that any potential buyers do their due-diligence! I shall say no more! :hmm:
