So its saturday morning. I wake up early, so me dad could get to the buying of my guitar. We're driving across town to sell my old Vista strat to a pawn shop. My dad says take nothing less then $100 Canadian. I knew That I was going to get only $50 for it but why not ask for a $100. So we get there and the lady says "Oh see this is a beginers guitar. See it has a skinny neck. The price your asking for I'm selling brand name guitars like epiphone...gibsons go take a look" I've never been to a pawn shops so I went over to the music area and was looking for brand names. When I got there they had a Nove a Slammer by Hammer, Baracuda, and a epiphone les paul special. She tried to sell me this "special" les paul as if it was the greatest thing around. So I left. I go to long and Mcquades. I'm looking at everything basses guitars, amps everything. There bass stock never seems to change by the way. So I'm looking at the guitars and I see this Red with gold hardware Epiphone SG for $299, then this Squier Telecaster. This Telecaster just looked amazing to me. It was white with a maple neck. I played them both and unfortunitly the both sucked. The SG had horrible fret buzz and the Tele felt like it was going to fall apart in my hads. Then I grabbed a Squier standerd Telecaster and it was good but didn't have the right tone. So I ask the music store guy if he had and Squier Fat Strats. He gave me an affinity one. I played it and asked for a standerd. Said "we don't have any in stock you'll have to order it" So I orderd it. Its going to take 2 weeks to get it and he wanted a $75 deposite. I thought for that money it should be here alittle quicker. It doesn't even come with a strap or a gig bag or nothing. Thats all extra. So that got me ticked alittle. Then I asked how much he would take for my old guitar he looked at and said 60 and sell it for $75. Now I have noticed that with everystore the price goes up. So I'm going to another store next weekend to try and sell it. The headache of trying to buy a simple $299 guitar is mind blowing. I don't know what it was. I just went crazy. Now share your stories with me.
