I wonder how many there really are of these?  Great to see another at any rate.   They pop up more often than Monark's or Prestige's it seems (in the States, anyhow).

Poor news to report boys...

Just left the pawn shop which is listing this guitar and they would not let me look at it. In fact they were not truthful about the guitar even being on the premises even after I caught a peek of it in their back office area.

Talked to a guy whose first question was "What are the going for?". Judging by the conditions of the other guitars they had hanging, and the lack of a hardshell case... roll of the dice guys.

Well guess they are wanting to score BIG on the bay and most likely got it for a super low price off a needy musician

First guy I talked to said it wouldn't be in the display area if it is on ebay and would go get it. He went back behind the counters and pulled out the gig bag being sold with it and opened it... I caught my peek and then started checking out the other guits hanging in the store. About s minute later a different fella comes back and plays me a tale of how the employee who lists things on ebay wasn't there but could drive in (30 minutes away from the store) but only if there was a very good chance (read definite chance) of a sale.

When I said "oh, so your telling me this pawn shop is the ebay seller, but it isn't actually here right now?" he hemmed and hawed for 5 seconds before replying "uh, yeah.. sorry" This shop sells more guns than anything else to judge by the merchandise being displayed, plus EVERY employee was packing a Glock, Sig, or. 45 ACP cocked and locked so I just shrugged and said, " too bad... I was passing thru on vacation and a pal in Wisconsin asked if I could swing by and check it out as he was itching to meet your minimum bid on it. Since I can't see it though it will probably mean no bid, and he REALLY wants one of these."

Guy responded again asking how much they go for as I was walking away and I told him anywhere from $300 to a grand in the last 2 years depending on how motivated the buyer was and the condition... but since I wasn't gonna wait a half hour they probably just lost this opportunity.

Dude looked gut punched sick, but as he was armed I didn't push his buttons any further

Interesting story Ice.
The whole description seems to depict a very strange selling tactic even if they haven't got a clue what its worth, you gave them a decent opinion.

I personally have difficulty understanding how, in a civilised society, sales staff are allowed to wear lethal weapons. If the merchandise they sell and the customers they have means this is necessary then its all wrong for me.

Yeah, it's a constant source of puzzlement here too.
Canadians are not a bunch of pussies where guns are concerned (except perhaps for the prissy, Pinot-swilling, Birkenstack-wearing, left wingers in downtown Toronto). We do have lots of legitimate gun users, and God knows we have our share of gang related gun violence, but the thought of pistol packin' store clerks is downright scary! affraid  As an "outsider" I don't get it at all.

If you work as a sales person in a shop that sells guns in this country, as a general rule you see them packing while on duty. As customers are going to handle the merchandise with regularity, and as a general rule firing pins or other essential parts that make the product go boom are not removed... well let's just say you can't always know if some nut walked in with a full magazine in a pocket and could use the merchandise as a means of holding up the place... or worse.

Perhaps a bit far-fetched to some, but if you are willingly entering a gun store it seems silly to me that anyone should be shocked or offended to see guns being kept handy by the staff. A Beretta 92 is not some sort of fashion accessory, it is a sidearm first and foremost, and quite frankly is meant to be worn accordingly at times.

Just sayin'...

I can understand it, but I don't like it. I've been using long arms all my life and still own quite a few, though they are still in NZ, and hence have frequented firearms retailers for years in NZ, Australia and in Jersey where none of the employees wear sidearms and in fact, sidearms are kept under separate, more stringent security provisions that the long weapons.
The idea of a nutbar walking into a shop with a loaded mag ready to slap into a pistol chills me to the bone; are the employees who are packing really good enough and slick enough to drop said nutbar before he or she goes postal?!

To all the non-Americans who have posted various opinions about the pawn shop guys with guns, please remember this one very simple rule in life:  context is everything.  

It's easy to pull the keys out of the ignition of a car.  But clearly there is a level of ignorance here concerning the removal of 'the thing that makes a gun go boom.'  Ignorance can be remedied.  Knowledge is power.

Not to belittle your last comment, but you will need to educate me on the idea of purchasing without any sort of background check. That can be done with a muzzleloading rifle but only that to my knowledge. All states here as to my knowledge have background checks, waiting periods, permit to purchase requirements... many (like Minnesota) all three, others with some combination thereof. And that in in addition to the federal regulations that apply to all us citizens regardless of the state we reside in. Legal purchasing is anything from simple and immediate here in the US of A. Illegal purchases are of course the only fast way around the systems in place, save for purchases between individuals... at the present time.

As tired and a many times misused analogy it is... this country would be far safer if the time and effort spent on gun regulation and restriction were instead focused on toughening up laws involving alcohol abuse combined with operation of motor vehicles

And that is the end of my comments concerning guns in this thread. You are very correct that it is a tangent that should not have been gone off on, I only mentioned it at all to help anyone reading gain some insight as to my reluctance in pressing the dope who was lying to me at that pawn shop as to why he was being such a dope.
