Re: Total Refurbish of Trashed Fly Deluxe

GC should list it on eBay with a starting bid of what they have in it = $600 or less & let the bids begin...
Too Bad Really..
I didn't see the thread about that guitar before

I once had a bone nut cut at GC & they ruined the guitar + charged me $70 = NEVER AGAIN!
It was a Gibson Blueshawk BTW
