    Looks like a dimebucker, maybe?

    Yeah this has actually been up for sale at that GC for quite a long time. "Fair" condition items at GC should be approached very carefully, that's one of the lowest condition ratings they can give (the only worse one is "poor") and is usually indicative of some kind of serious issue (probably the same one that's been leading people to pass on it for months).

    Usually GC's ratings system doesn't mean much at all...I've had "great" condition items arrive in terrible shape and get promptly returned when I picked them up and "fair" condition items that were in really good shape. In this case though because it's been available for a while, I'd be cautious and get a bunch more pics before pulling the trigger.

    I've played a few of these though, nice guitars!

    Next time I'm up that way I may peek in on it.

    I went ahead and emailed them asking for more pictures.

    I bought a Washburn guitar from them listed in Fair condition, it a couple small dings, broken saddle, nasty strings and overall covered in dirt. I cleaned it up really well, replaced the bridge saddle, and got it set up perfect. Sometime later I traded it in on a Seagull, and they relisted it as being in Excellent condition. Same store too - I got a kick out of it.

    I'd be curious to find out if anyone responds. I've never had anyone (at multiple GC stores) respond to email. Calling will probably get you the info much faster.

    What I'd like to know is; what's the difference between 'great' and 'excellent'? They sound like equall superlatives to me.

    "Yes, I'd like to return this guitar... I don't think your description was very honest... You listed it in 'excellent' condition, and it's clearly in 'great' condition at best!"
