Your will, you have to have your will done before you show the JEM to your wife. And I strongly suggest you put me up for that JEM, just so we have it in writing, ok laugh.gif

Nice guitar Andrew and Congratulations!!!

I bought a guitar off ebay a few weeks ago (in my Avatar and sig). I wanted a Fender USA made Hardtail. Some guy on ebay listed it poorly and I stumbled upon it. I bought it for $580 bucks after shipping and most used Hardtails go for $750 -$950....... Then yesterday I cracked open the pickgaurd to see what model Seymour Duncan Pickups I had and did some research......

Results: My guitar is actually a 1999 Fender "Big Apple" strat which was only made for 2 years by fender. The pickups are customized for fender and the pickgaurd, pickup colors, and guitar color was all custom for the "Big Apple" series... Long story short my used guitar value jumped from like $750 bucks to about $1200. Hurray me!

And I LOVE this thing to death!!! I have always wanted a Fender Hardtail and now I got one of the best ever made... So I can understand what it feels like to finally get the instrument of your desires. Have fun shredding and post lots of pics! biggrin.gif

Um, I used clever psychological trickery and minimized the fallout. What she actually did to me was made me buy her a couple of handbags - nearly doubled the price of the guitar sad.gif (She likes expensive handbags!)
