    Hey Guys, I got musically sexually harassed today. Lol!

    I have been looking at Ep Thunderbirds lately because I love the tone and vintage sunburst look, and I like how different they look.

    Did a quick check at a local Pawn shop and there one was, with a price tag of.....$400....(What?) Got a very attractive woman to take it down so I could take a look.....So I talked to the manager, and he asked "How much are you wanting to pay?" I said $175 and after having the very pretty lady stare into my eyes many times during the whole affair....I got it!:hyper:

    Impulse buy or maybe hormone buy...but yeah I already feel a bit stupid, and I can't take it back. :rollno::(

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the bass, but I really should have spent the money on more responsible things.....

    Has this happened to you guys? hahaha

    Got a pawn shop to lower its price on a musical instrument by more than 50%? No, that has never happened to me.
