Geez..I feel like I just kicked a puppy. I know, its up to the seller to research and try to get the most but... I answered an ad for a 1989 fender strat with upgrades for 500$. The upgrades include: David Gilmour EMG wired pickgaurd, 200$ on eBay, 300$ new. Still has the box and instructions...Sperzel locking tuners...., graphtech saddles, fancy ball bearing nut. Plus, it came with original tuners, saddles, nut and, here's the kicker, the original pickguard has lace sensors and has been modded for a roland synth. The pickup and all the wiring. I just need the GR-1 brain. I have been wanting a synth for 25 years ever since I listened to Pat Metheney's Offramp. Just the roland pickup and wiring was probably 300$. Did I mention, the guitar plays like a dream? Original case, allen wrenches and extra spring in the little paper envelope? I figure I will sell the EMG's for 200$, the Sperzels for 50$ and I end up with a roland ready '89 strat for 250$... The reason I feel kind of guilty? The seller was a fireman and I picked it up at the fire-station, the nicest guy you will ever meet. He told me I was the first reply and he had over 50 replies after me. I told him it was a great deal, why are you selling so cheap? He pointed out a few cracks in the finish and 2 tiny holes in the body and 4 tiny holes in the headstock where there was a Floyd type tremolo. What a piece of crap!! I don't know, why..but I feel kind of bad. I mean he probably spent 600-700$ on upgrades alone. Anyone else ever feel a bit bad getting a killer deal?
