OK, I gotta be honest. I was a happy little worm. Content with the instruments I have and the amps are great. I was not looking for a new guitar. There was absolutely no GAS going on here at my place. Except when I ate pizza... Today I did my payday activities by paying bills and such and was jetting around town in my classic rez-rocket (a '92 Blazer POS) and just popped in to a local pawn shop to browse the tools and guns and such. In the middle of the floor near the stereos was a huge stack of all sorts of amps for sale. I yawned and moved on. Remember I'm a happy worm.... No guns caught my eye. The tools were blah..... Then I made the mistake of looking up at the guitars hung on the wall. Lots of Squire Strats and the token low end Ibenez stuff... Blah..... Then a blood red SG shape appeared among the usual suspects. I stepped closer.... Their guitars hang BEHIND the big counter (a good thing as it keeps the local yahoos from messing with the few good ones) and I squinted to see the name Maestro on the headstock. It still had the plastic all over it was was unplayed. Not a fingerprint or even a smudge was on this one. I looked at it a moment and saw the price was about average for this model, but I was not in the market for a new guitar. I was content, remember? That's what I was telling myself too when they handed it to me. Yup, brand new and not even a slight mark on the plastic or nuthin'. I smiled at the sweet pretty young lass that was there and this came out of my mouth before I knew I even said it. "What's your best cash deal out the door on this one?" HUH!?!! What did I just say?!! What's wrong with me? When she walked back with the guitar in her hands after talking to her manager, she quoted a ridiculously low price. I mean it was a stupid low price. The kind that ya really can't walk away from. So now I gotta lay the blame on someone... Humm.... eS.G.? Lead or Pit perhaps? Naw, I'll take the heat on this one. So here's my low buck SG knockoff with a single HB but with a great neck and remarkably good tone too. So even though it was an impulse buy due to a redundant low sale price, I couldn't pass it up. A little set up work and it rocks like a big dog. Think I'll keep it.... Besides, eS.G. said I deserved a treat for being a good boy right?
