    So I said why the heck not?

    A Yammy "strat" SSH. It's the one that comes in those beginner packs. I figgered, welp, it's better than paying more for something I'll only use for figuring songs out.

    not bad, yamaha pacificas are some of the best beginner guitars there are.
  5. Good deal... I'm the same

    I ended up with a craptastic fender starcaster (costco version), about 10 bucks but I had to put it back together. It was spray painted, pickgaurd duct-taped on (there are a bunch of mismatched screws there now), and some other minor things. I even set it on fire once, which did not do much damage.

    Oddly enough, it sounds fantastic! I tend to get lucky with things like this, I bought a great condition BC Rich Warlock for $50...

    old vintage banjo for $50

    Johnson Jazz bass (fender ripoff), padded gig bag, 10 watt practice amp (useless to me), and strings for $20. I just had to fix some of the soldering on the inside to make it work...I've since converted it to fretless.

    These finds are the main reason I can have all this crap, I've only paid what I should have for my Gretsch bass and 100 watt amp, and some accessories.
    I hope this keeps going for me...and may everyone find gear cheap! :D
