So, I had a black cherry S2 Custom 24 on order... But I'm still scouring ebay occasionally. Recently came across a guitar that I immediately fell in love with at a reasonable price. Only 4 bids -- and 43 watchers. "Pipe dream" I'm thinking of course.
Yesterday, I'm sitting at the Ortho office with the kid (and the wife) and my iPhone ebay thing goes off -- Still at 4 bids -- with 4 minutes left. I've been caught up in too many last-second snipes to get my hopes up and I have no idea what the top bidder's limit is, so I bump the thing up a lousy $26.99 with around 10 seconds left -- YOU ARE THE HIGH BIDDER -- and I refresh, and refresh, and refresh -- YOU WON.
Needless to say, I had to put the brakes on the S2. But I'm sure you'll understand why --
One of my dream guitars (Custom 24) in one of my favorite finishes ever (black gold) -- DOM Halloween of 2011, really nice shape from what I can tell, a few edge dings (which is fine -- I want to play this thing and I'm tired of babying everything else I own), factory HSC and I'm only out a bit more than the S2 was going to run (especially since I would've dropped down for a HSC to go along with it anyway).
I'm sure I'll be back with my first thoughts in a couple days...
