~ What the H@LL was I thinking? Dynasty on GC for $65 - GONE! (personal rant to follow)

Post by drsyn67 on Sat Jan 05, 2013 12:17 pm

So I awakened this morning at 4AM and dropped by GuitarCenter.com to browse for Westies. I noted (and posted here) about an odd Dynasty bass, and didn't mention that they had recently posted a Dynasty XV3GR for $65! What the Pacing & Thinking was I THINKING???? I'm having some tough months financially, but had an unused GC giftcard that would have practically covered this! I think in my slumber I thought "I've already got that one" or "its probably ruined"... or something stoopid. Geez.

Bummer! I've done the same thing before and regretted for a long time for not acting quickly. Gotta move quick on that stuff, maybe it was the sleepy haze, 4a.m? There shall be others, fret not!

I have seen that guitar twice on GC. I emailed them on Wednesday for pics. No reply. Wonder if it existed???? Don't kill yourself over it Drsyn67, it wasn't meant to be. There will be others.

Thanks, fellas. In a tough economy, there's sure to be other good deals. I was probably in my right (albeit, half-awake) mind when I thought "I've already got one". But the influence of the collectors here on the forum certainly inspires the desire to want more... even if it is a model one already has.

Aria Pro II ST1512, Westport, NZ, 1987, 2nd hand shop, NZ$400. Went away and thought about for an hour, went back to buy it: gone.

OUCH, Corsair... that is just painful! Sometimes its best not to think, but to act. Sounds like something Patton would say.

The listing was WRONG, no need to feel bad.

That guitar is NOT what it is pictured to be. It was and "Eleca" strat copy with the wrong picture. I called them, they said it's not a "V" but a cheap strat copy with the wrong photo. So don't feel bad.

That's why that looked so familiar. I had the same issue with a great great deal on musicgoround. That one was a buy it now on the internet site, I asked for pictures and it was not the same guitar. I emailed them and they said they would change it. They didn't. I wonder if they have to get some many done in a day and decide to cut and paste???? I always ask for pics if it seems to good to be true. At least the GC one, you could not buy it over the internet. You had to call.
