Ring the GAS bell!

Today, I popped into Cash Generator, just to kill some time before a work meeting…and I saw a Godin LGXT-SA. Seymour Duncan pickups, piezo bridge for acoustic sounds, synth output, ebony fretboard…these bad boys retail for £1600 approx brand spanking new. The price tag for this one?

SIXTY.

FUCKING.

QUID.

I couldn’t get the debit card out fast enough.

It’s a bit rough around the edges (pots are a bit scratchy, no whammy bar arm, switch tip is missing off the pickup selector, the low E string is quiet in acoustic mode, needs a restring and a tidy up), but even so…£60. Fu-huck ME.

This can only mean one thing. I’m probably going to get T-boned by an 18-wheeler driving to work some day.

Did I mention it came with a Hiscox hardshell case? Well, it does.

A pic should be attached to this post, if I’ve used the iPhone WordPress app properly.
