Pointy guitars make me happy and I could use some happy so how about a Ferrari Red Special edition XIPHOS!!! On the way from ebay. Hoping for the best smile.gif

This is the XPT750 Limited Edition with Dimarzio pickups. They didn't make that many of them and I'm stoked to be getting one. My last one was black, but I have enough black guitars smile.gif

That looks lethal. smile.gif Looks way cooler in red than black, IMHO. Curious on how you like those Activator-X pickups when you get it.

They are toned down versions of the INSANE high gain ones that look just like them by Dimarzio, ,the X22 I think. I've tried them and the gain is nearly uncontrollable. These are backed off a bit so they should scream just fine and it's neck through body so the sustain should be killer smile.gif

So get this. The packing was done so poorly that the guitar got damaged in transit. it's a fairly rare ibby. They didn't make many in this color. I was really looking forward to it. It was packed with garbage bags and bits of bubble wrap. Uggh. Some people. To just disrespect an instrument, not to mention a buyer like that really irks me. Little does he he know that ebay is all about the buyer so I can get my money back just starting a claim. I have been on the other end of that so I so know how it works. "no return" or not, if somebody wants their money back, ebey pulls it out of your paypal, even if it leaves your paypal in a negative balance. I'm going to see how much it will be to repair. I'd take a partial refund if it would cover it.

Ugh, that is a shame. I would be outraged at such a poor packing job dry.gif At the very least the seller should pay for the repairs. Unfortunately it seems the buyer is the one who has to go through the trouble.

IT's pretty awful. And it will take $300 to fix. Just heard back from a couple of luthiers. sad.gif

The buyer seems naive on how ebay works. He thinks ebay is going to pay for everything. I hate to tell him
that they will pull the full amount from his paypal account, without asking even if it takes his account negative.
They've done it to me so I know how it works. Rest assured I'll be getting a partial or full refund.
