    Wolfgangs for Tsunami Relief (revisited)

    Before the Great Web Crash of 2004, there was a thread about a guy selling 3 Wolfgangs on eBay for tsunami relief. This guy ponied up 3 of his own guitars (black standard, cream standard, tobacco sunburst standard) and the winning bidders made checks payable to Doctors Without Borders USA. In addition, the guy selling them would send the receipt to the winner so they could take any deductions. It all sounded well and good, but there was some skepticism.

    Well, I bid on the black standard - I was the only person to bid at all, on any of the three. No bids on the cream colored one or the sunburst. Happily to say, the guy came thru - overnighted the guitar to me the day he received the check, he also covered all the postage. Here's the original eBay listing -

    So, for those of you who read the original thread, this guy DID come thru and just shows that guitar players are definitely the coolest people around!!!

    Nice jobs by you and the doctor without a border. That's a creative win-win-win situation.

    Yeah, it seems to have worked out well. The only things missing were a strap and the owners manual, and 3 minutes at peavey.com plus $13 at Guitar Center took care of that. Best thing is, I was able to sneak a new guitar past my wife by saying "Honey, it's for charity!".
