It was “Used Explorer Day” at the Long & McQuade store in Burlington, near Toronto, Canada, today. The korina Epi was only 350 dollars…I came SO CLOSE.
But I have to keep reminding myself that I MUST NOT impulse-buy guitars anymore! Every time I make a snap decision to buy a guitar or a part or a pedal or a DVD I increase the time until I can buy the guitar I have been LUSTING over for the last year. I MUST conserve money so I can actually pay for my dream when I go to New York in October!
And it has been f*cking tough to keep my wallet in my pocket this week! There have been SO MANY cool things to impulse-buy. Here is a smattering of the cool used stuff that has landed this week in the shops of Toronto:
Firstly, at the same store (as above) there was one of the new cool little Epi Casino “Coupe” models in cherry. It’s a Casino with an ES-339 body. Only 500 bones. I came SO CLOSE.
Next, at Capsule’s online store this week, these used guitars came in and I would buy the sh*t out of every one of them - if, as I said, I were not saving up for something special…

Visit Capsule and see the plethora of fine vintage guitars in stock there at this address: http://www.capsulemusic.com/ and perhaps even buy one of their guitars so they do not prosecute me for using their photos! ;)
