    Seems not, fast track to everything. There’ll soon be a market for pre-knackered cars with 75k put on the clock before you pick them up new!

    Haha, that's about as good of an example that could exist! I couldn't put myself in those shoes, & I have a feeling the opposite is likely true ;)

    Yeah absolutely! That probably explains the price; the private seller. I think those guys put it up for a ridiculous amount, just to see if they can catch that one customer that really "needs" it for whatever reason (status :() That works two-fold because it artificially inflates the entire market.

    Isn't all the high-end stuff done that way? Looks like this is a private seller, so it's not coming from Fender directly.

    To wake up knowing you could buy anything in the world that’s for sale. Literally nothing on Earth to aim for or save for. It must be useless as a therapy.

    Yes, it is.
    Homebrew jobs are done with canned air and a heat gun... and they look like it.
