^^ On a nylon string, too? If that hurts someones fingertips too much, they should move on to bassoon or something.

 

I am always amazed at those who go the extra mile to make their product as attractive as possible, to command the top dollars they are looking for in the sale.

Vintage Hondo 732 Deluxe Series made in the USA for 100 dollars

Really? Hondo had a USA operation?

OPEN TO TRADE PURCHASES OF EQUAL VALUE

Er, I have a stick of Juicy Fruit that's been in the bottom of my car's console for a few years...

I like the highlighting around the neck pickup.  And, hey, at least both the pickups are from the same manufacturer.  I think the words this guy is looking for are "Custom Relic Job" and "One of a Kind".

OK, I get catching some eyeballs with a little T&A to sell some things, like light beer.  But what the hell is the strategy here?  Hoping someone clicks that hot honey in the picture, goes to the ad and realizes, "You know what?  I really do need some vintage RCA tubes and completely forgot!"


https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Rca-Vacuum-Tube-12AX7-ECC83-Vacuum-Tube-12AX7-ECC83-Black-Plates/184426866137?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3D6be2d67bc5e3459ea3c5f0f5ecb3a755%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D184426866137%26itm%3D184426866137%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524%26brand%3DRCA&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042

I feel like probably everyone looking for tubes is already looking for tubes and that probably everyone who would click on that without reading the headline probably isn't going to impulse buy any 6ca7. 

It's like a whole thing for this acount.

Hell, I kept seeing the pic for a good week and wondering what I had searched to get dat ass popping in the algorithm. 

Then again, it did get a share, so what do I know?

I've been intending to share this gem of an offering from the Charlotte CL for the past few days.  I mean, it's a "valley arts custom pro shop guitar" borne of a "samick concept and design".  Obviously, master luthier Mike McGuire was in dire need of fresh ideas on guitar building and reached out to Samick for its design expertise. All for the HFC-approved price.  How could you go wrong?

Is that a shower tile?

No, a shower tile would have looked better than whatever that is.

Somehow I stumbled onto this old thread.  It is the most TGP thread that I've ever seen.   A simple question turns into a Dumble fan arguing with Pete Thorn, John Suhr, and Al Estrada don't know what they're talking about in regard to EVH's original amp that goes 50+ pages.

Does that ship 'Straight to your door" as I've heard tell of? 
Because in these uncertain times...

Shit, if Diver Down will get $75, Fair Warning has to be worth an even $100.
