    My 1979 Ibanez "Studio" Bass and Fender Bassman 4x10 amp for $350.00 was a good deal.

    But dollar per sqft., this was the best deal in my life.

    oh man that Alembic is a sweet deal.

    I got a 60's Kay upright for free. A friend of my mother's had caught her husband cheating and separated from him. He left his Kay at the house (which was hers) and she gave it to me.

    sucks for him...cool for me.

    spector ns2000 plus a pretty nice hardcase for a MIA Fender Jazz Deluxe. '98 model with nearly no scratches. I Small cymbal scar on the bottom side of the headstock, and a tuner that needed tightening, but that's it. I couldn't get the right tone out of the Spector, and the other guy couldn't get the Right tone out of the Jazz. It worked out for both of us.
