    There used to be a great Italian cafe in McHenry that was my lunch stop between Milwaukee and Chicago (40 years ago?). Best spaghetti and meatballs anywhere and a classic old jukebox. Hit the biggest bug ever, blacking out the windshield, right outside town on the way back to the hwy.

    Is an $850 guitar for $700 a deal if it has a "B" punched in the headstock? What chance do you have of selling it for a reasonable price with that mark of death on it? I'm looking at a Schecter that I really like, but that "B" is holding me back....

    I think you may can do better------look around a bit-----I have seeen similar Schecters for less....not that color---but for less $ and not "B" stock

    However are you planning on "flipping" or are you buying----if BUYING is the goal---a 150.00 savings is not shabby

    I know I can pick up a normal Schecter C1 for $500 and even less, but this a newly released "Dragon Burst" finish. If I pounce it will be a keeper, but you never know when you'll want to get rid of a piece of gear and a "B" on the headstock will make it harder and you'll get less...
