  • I Said I Wasn't Going To Do It, But.......

    ......I couldn't turn this down. Bought it three days ago. It's a 2012 Martin D-15M, about three months old, that I found on my local Craig's List. The seller swore he was only selling it because he found out that a dreadnought guitar caused him some shoulder pain. I saw his sales receipt from Guitar Center. He paid $1199 for it new with a 10% discount. So, he got it for just under $1100, plus sales tax, of course. When he tried to trade it back in, GC offered him less on trade than he sold it to me for. I got it for $550!! People, it's like a brand new guitar, the case is too, and the tone and playability is as good as it gets. I can understand why knockwood is always raving about his now. Truly in "mint" condition......not one smudge on it. It's perfect.

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

      Congrats on the new Martin Opa !!!



      So, did you buy it because it coordinated (color wise) with the chair and throw?

        Not really, but I'm glad it does. I bought it because it coordinated with my wallet!!

            That was certainly a great deal, Opa. That case is the exact same one that came with my D-16GT.

                              Holy crap! Congrats! $550 is insane for that guitar!







                              I have the same git, but paid full price from Elderly in 2011 (I think). Still very well worth it. I will never, ever, ever sell it. Playability and tone are fantastic, it smells great, it looks real purty. It is also the one guitar I own that my wife will not allow me to sell under any circumstances. It's her favorite...



                              Hope you enjoy the hell outta that thing.
                              I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.I.K.F.C.E.S.C.Potato SocietySAWG
