Just saw an add for eXcess Cargo...41" Gibson...dread...mahoghany back & sides.....strap, gig bag, extra strings, DVD....for $69.00.

they still show an Academy strat with amp for $99.00...bought one last year for my buddies 15yr old daughter...suprising value for the $...still plays OK (with trem removed)..good starter

amazing prices for Christmas gas

cheers

there is one in kitchener, brick & mortar,, I assumed they were nationwide...only been there twice...they sell all sorts of stuff...boom boxes..speakers..you name it in hard goods....I saw the flier in the cofee shop this am whilst waiting on my coffee...if i recall, when I purchased the Strat copy there was a reference on the box to a possible warehouse in Alberta?...i think all their stuff is from China....appears that they do have on-line sales..google XS Cargo...

Well, wadddayaknow! I just looked in the phone book and there's a listing for XS Cargo. I know I've seen it before..... all sorts of weird stuff, discounted. I wonder if we have the same stock you guys have? I might take a trip over there today. I wonder what the setup/action would be like on the $69.00 guitar? I'll bet you could land a 747 under the strings! :smile:

who knows, it's a Gibson? but you know it's a cheap gift for a starter git, perhaps a bit on the big size?
I just did up a POS little parlour accoustic, all shiny like, for a friends 8yr old daughter and she's tickeled pink...she just got it yesterday, was to be hidden until Christmas, but I insisted give it early ('cause it may warp between now and then LOL.)..we'll see how she makes out and if really takes to it then we'll find something better.
cheers, and enjoy your trip to XS....hmm...now you'll have XS GAS

ever have one of those days where it seems like you have to do everything twice, I think I just hurt myself...a repetative injury me thinks.

Ya...it's definitely a sub brand, but the add I glanced at was definitely using the gibson logo.
