So today, I was browsing my local buy sell ads in kijiji, I saw this beautiful 2013 LP Standard cherry burst with an above standard flame top. I check the ads regularly to see whats out there, even if I don't have money on that particular day, I still look daily for fun. So the guitar for sale was beautiful as mentioned and I sometimes ask dumb questions because you just never know!...I asked if he would trade for my 2019 standard 50's with a new boss katana 50 amp with tag still on it. I told him my guitar is mint. His asking price was $2750 cdn (2200us), his reply was a simple 'nope'. I then said well at least I tried...lol, I further told him that I'm going to list my guitar and if mine sells before yours, I'll buy yours and if you sell yours first I'm keeping mine. Following that msg, I proceeded to take picutures of mine, I was even going to throw in some extra's to ensure a swift sale that included a new mini gibson, new gibby hat, shir,t les paul pens, pickup and their choice of a hardshell or softshell case....So after I take the pictures, I check kijiji again and he sent me a msg saying "I'm actually thinking of taking the ad down, because my dad will kill me...", I checked the ad again, and indeed he took it down after I disclosed my plans for buying his!...lol So I told him good choice, keep it, it will be worth more down the road and in fact is worth more than what he was asking. So after that, I wasn't so bummed out, because after looking at my pictures, i can't believe I was willing to trade it away...happy ending after all! ....here are the ill fated pictures that never made it to kijiji...glad she's staying home, i hope to not betray her again, sorry babe...
