    I am up in Chicago helping judge a gymnastics competition and found a 2016 classic player Baja Tele with Lollar pick ups for 650. The guy can meet me 10 minutes away from where I am at the problem is I literally do not have room in my car to bring the thing home after picking up my daughter in Chicago. Baja teles have gone through the roof price wise. This is a great deal. NOT happy. I was not supposed to be judging, got roped in as soon as I walked through the door.

    Does your daughter really need all her luggage?

    Dad's a guitar player. She'll understand. Pick her up some other weekend.

    It will always fit. I’d drive home with it on my lap if I had to. Doesn’t matter if it’s dangerous, it’s all about the NGD!!

    Just think how much that guitar would enjoy sitting on your lap and having its head out the window the whole way home. Could be a great bonding experience.

    There's always room for a guitar....if you want it, buy it NOW and worry about fitting it in the car later. You'll figure something out!!

    Ship it, ship it, ship it. Can't be that much for something you really want.
