Well I probably shouldn't have quoted your post without taking another look at it. So for that I apologize. Maybe a little kettle calling the pot black on my part. I almost paid 5,500 for a Guitar Trader LP last year. Guys here told me I was crazy and not to do it. In the end someone ponied up and beat me to it for 6k. I guess I'm not the only crazy guy out there! Funny, I wanted that Guitar Trader because I liked it and I liked the history behind the line. Not because it was better than any of my reissues. I guess if you're going in with that attitude you can't get hurt.
