big frank said:I was in Gus' pawn shop in Niagara Falls last week because a Les Paul copy was in the window and it looked good from the road.
However, it was complete crap with the strings an inch off the board and priced at 300 dollars.
Everything is either 300 dollars for an electric or 200 dollars for their pretty sad acoustics.
Anything with Fender on it is priced higher than new.
Avoid it or be sorry.
Last summer I witnessed a man buy his young son an electric guitar that wasn't worth 50 dollars let alone 300.
Plus, the guy showed him a mouldy old case and said: "We ususally get $60 dollars for these".
yeah, those pawnshops where pretty good in the early 90's when I used to live in that area.Scottone said:I used to go to the one's on Church St. in Toronto, but they all seem to be run by overly agressive, chain smoking Russian guys who try to push junk for higher than new prices.
Blame either the internet or portable cordless recip saws. "he loved that guitar more than he loved me. Let me get my Black & Decker and I'll hack the damn guitar to pieces in the backyard. Then I'll get myself a sherry and I'll watch it burn"Milkman said:Same goes for the little old lady selling her dead husband's 59 Strat at a garage sale for $125.
