Maybe he's finally realised that he'll never shift stock if he's asking so much?
How does he get access to so many vintage guitars?

music-outlet-shop
Being european and searching for Mustangs and related all the time, that seller comes up a lot for me.
The one that annoys me the most has got to be this one. I mean, WTF with that price for worthless crap.

He keeps relisting it, too.

Has to be some sort of bad german sense of humor I don't understand.

Geez it hurts every time:
- his stupid ads
- his insane prices
- that he's located in the same city as me (as in, imagine IF he were reasonably priced)

:fp:
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

Yeah, I've been trying to wrap my head around

-where he's getting all that weird stuff from
-how he manages to keep his business running with this kind of pricing...

for YEARS now

you forgot that it's all a pile of mutilated crap :D

I wish I could

1/ Block his listings and never see them again and

2/ Unsee almost all of them because the emotions they stir aren't positive.

This Jazzmaster isn't a Fender, is it? The pickguard and the strap button location look wrong, and the body wood doesn't really look like alder or ash? Is it an MIJ of some sort?

22 fret neck - woodgrain looks like it (was) kinda nice though.

The Floyd is nasty, but the speaker is genius!
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before....

When I was like 12 I wondered why guitars didn’t have internal speakers - I guess a 3” speaker would pass for busking or practice duties but it looks like that one still needs to be plugged in separate to the input Jack with a cable :D

The beauty of this design is if you build the speaker to fit the regular vibrato plate and route, and mount on the same screw holes, and even add some slots so you can hardtail it, you could have a fully reversible amp mod for travelling.

Someone get on this!

This isn’t a vintage example but it’s super fucked up offensive regardless because people are monsters
