My Latest Deal

Recommended Posts

Not a deal for you, but was for ME! ❤️
I got this for $460 from Sweetwater.  Said it was used.
It was immaculate!  $440 savings!  YAY ME!!!

It's a PRS SE Angelus AE50e

How this came about was I had ordered a used one for $600 on Reverb from
Fort Wayne, IN. last Wednesday.  It said "Shipping Label Printed" almost immediately.
So waited for it to say "Shipped".  Thursday...still says Label Printed.  Friday...still says
Label Printed.  I contact the seller and he says that he took it to work and shipped it from
there on Friday, so may not ship out until Monday.  So I waited.  Monday comes and the day
goes by and I check again.  STILL says "Label Printed".  I again contact the seller.  He states
that he can't find if it shipped or not and is looking into it.  Tuesday morning I check again
and still says "Label Printed".  So I contact him and tell him I want a refund.  Wednesday
I get my refund.  

I hope they didn't lose his guitar.  But, that said, after I get my refund I head to Sweetwater because 
I saw when I was looking that they had a couple of Demo's for $809.  When I checked I
happened to see THIS one for $459.99!  I'm like WHAT?  So I check out the pictures.  The
only flaw they showed was  pinhead size "dent" in the side of the headstock.  So I ordered it.  Saved 
$140 bucks from the OTHER one that I ordered.  It just arrived and it's MINT.  Yes, there
is a Pinhead size "dent" in the headstock, that you would need a magnifying glass to see,
and I DON'T CARE...LOL   It's GORGEOUS!  This is the ACTUAL Guitar I bought!  Came
with a Hardshell Case also...a very nice one!

That is one gorgeous guitar Larry! It certainly looks like it's worth double what you paid. Nice one 👍

What a carry on with the first guitar but it was obviously meant to be.

Is it loud?

It is...it's sounds amazing!  
I didn't expect it to sound as
great as it does...I'm really impressed.

Thanks everyone!  I'm REALLY happy!
Buying a "used" guitar over the internet
is always a scary proposition, and, as a rule,
I don't do it.  I NEED to see and hear it, but
this time I'm HAPPY I DID!!!

Awesome, I always expect an acoustic guitar to be "loud". As a singer, I expect it to accompany me, and a soft/quiet one won't ever do the trick (I can go too loud), lol.
Thanks for the mini review ;)

I have to say that, even at the selling price of $899,
this is a LOT of guitar for the money.  I've played guitars
that cost a lot more that didn't sound HALF as good!
The specs on this guitar are something you usually don't
find in guitars costing TWICE as much!  The only BAD
thing I have to say is that these are made in China...
but the quality is most definitely there, and it is what it is...

Congrats Larry , now Larry (and friends) i need your help onn this one

 

One of the main issue when triying amps is to get several GTR played parts ..diffrents still diferrent gtr /...ect ... so if any of you guyz could send me some 4 bars loop or what ever strings part ....that would be great , i'm using plugins , it's cool but no way near the real thing to stress the dynamic response of an amp ...

Thks !!!
