heh heh heh, that one reminds me of my ex. he had absolutely no musical talent whatsoever and owned two guitars, one of them a parker fly deluxe, and a beautiful bass guitar. and a 32 channel mixer. and like seven synths. seriously, he couldn't play a chord on the guitar. or tap his foot in rhythm if I asked him to.

i'm still bitter about that.

anyway, I have two of these and haven't used them. 800$ worth of this stuff is a big deal to me, especially when it's not getting used:

maybe my martin, but only because i found out i have ARTHRITIS right after acquiring the guitar, and i'm just now three years later building back the strength and treating my joints so that I can play again. Dammit, life. Seriously, you're a bitch sometimes. and vancouver weather. that's a bitch too.

You said it, nickyboy. If I could turn back time, I'd opt for going to a cheap state school instead of some bullshit private college.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad I came to Toronto and pursued what I did. It's just the line of credit that I owe staring me down that throws me off still, when I don't have a solid foundation for work lined up past the next month or so.

i'm paying $550 for the space echo

that's sorta the going rate on ebay, you see some people with "buy it now" for $650-$750" though

this is a local craigslist thing too so that's good because A) it's from 1973 and shipping vintage gear makes me nervous and B) shipping is probably at least $100 to canada

I can't support your claim that it's a bad decision. ARCTIC INDIAN is going to be floating away
