    The last one has even been refretted. Who's going to buy these? Nuts

    A comma is a decimal separator over here, so I’ll have that sonic blue one, even though it’s old and worn.

    Nothing a spray can can’t fix...

    It's like candy...
    I was all excited when I found an original Lake Placid Blue in fair condition, but this is from outer space...

    I sometimes wonder if shops like these are quite happy not to quickly sell their high end vintage guitars. Gives them a certain prestige to have them, and draws customers to their shops.

    It's not like they have an infinite supply of new vintage guitars to order as stock sells.

    Two scenarios:

    a. Joe Rockstar/I.T. Guru/Social Media Giant comes in and pays the asking price because its peanuts, and they can.
    b. The shop has an incoming supply of more great vintage stuff, and sells the older (longer in shop) stock for greatly reduced pricing, generally by targeted marketing to certain key clients.

    I don't fall into category a, but I've certainly been marketed to under the category b scenario.

    Those are beauties indeed! That Inca Silver is clean as a whistle and quite rare to my experience. I've seen several of the other two in my years of vintage dealing, but not that nice of a silver example.
    Mipstoo, would you ask them to raise the price on that one, please? ;)

    After clicking on the store link and browsing, I've just snapped up a Sonic Grey MN Am Pro Strat from there for £200 cheaper than any other UK retailer.

    Thanks for the unintend hookup @Mipstoo (although I'm going to have to face the wrath of an ANGRY wife)

    Just tell her it's my fault :D

    And show her the pre-CBS ones saying: "it could be much worse"
