I've got a guitar buying dilemma. Help me choose between USED or NEW.

    if youre spending 100's of dollars on stuff, one shouldnt settle.

    because 700 compared to 300 dollars isnt a big difference in the grand scheme of things.

    especially when one admits, they can financially handle it.

    Right now, i can't afford a 700 dollar anything, but if was saving up for something, if i can save 300, i can save 700 just as easily.

      Europa - of course what you say makes sense to the financially responsible - but not to me!

        ****************, i meant to write cant afford a 700 anything.

        quite a big difference in meaning.

          You answered your own question. You want option A and you won't be as happy with option B.

          Down the road you'll appreciate more having the guitar you wanted and got, more than having saved the cost of three nice dinners out on the town and settled for a lessor color choice.

          Most of my guitar purchases have been emotional rather than rationale, so I can relate.

            Another compelling argument...

                      Just out of curiosity what guitar are we talking about? A $750 price tag for the new one isn't that much. A mid priced axe. But $350 is a good deal for a mid priced level guitar. People buy mid ($500-800) priced guitars for less than $400 all the time here at HC and usually are happy.

                        Ok, well I just sent payment so it's a done deal. Though the voting is in a dead heat, the cheap-ass in me just couldn't pass up the good deal.

                        It's an Ibanez JS100 guitar. It's loaded with duncan '59s and includes the hardshell case for $350 shipped! It's a pretty killer deal, overall.

                            I say B as you know resale is gonna suck anyways. Nothing wrong with a color you don't ADORE.

                            Oh crap, voting is over....oops!

                            Red looks nice and i say you can put it in the column. SCORE!~

                              It's not bad, I suppose. The white one looked angelic. In the end I will probably appreciate the deal because this guitar probably isn't really worth the $700 dollar price tag, but at $350 with a case, shipped, and with duncan '59s it's a steal.

                                I'd take Option A.
