    So, I am in my local music store today...

    So, I need to pick up a new mic cord today, head into my local Melodee Music, and just looking around, and they have a hand made strat for sale in there for...

    $29,999.99!!!!!!!!!!

    Very intricate designs, more like a piece of art than a guitar, but damn, I was afraid to even breath on it.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    I mis-worded, not on sale, for sale.

    He was hand made, said it took over 1,100 hours to hand craft it. Not really any year for it, as it is totally hand made by the guy.

    I will check their website to see if they have a picture of it on there and post it if they do.

    The $29,999.99 thing kills me sometimes. Like putting $30,000.00 on it is going to make someone say "you know, I just can't afford that...if they just took off one penny..."?

    I know studies show odd numbers are easier on the buyer than even ones, but that only makes sense for impulse buys where the buyer has to rationalize the purchase. I don't know of anyone who throws down $29,999.99 at a whim. And any that do, that one cent wasn't going to make a difference.

    That's just my two cents
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
