    They are insanely good, and you'd be a fool not to grab this one in a second.

    I too have convinced myself I don't need this, but at $450-ish shipped it's a solid price.

    @mark_morton you don't have any black guitars, maybe this could be for you? :whistle:

    Buying from GC used is a gamble at best, and without pictures I wouldn't risk it even at that price. Shipping from cali and tax would probably add another $75 too.

    Ohh if that damn thing didn't have a floyd! Horizon IIIs are so killer.

    GC is risk free. If there's an issue with the guitar, you get a full refund including the shipping cost. I just had this issue, took me 5 mins to give the guitar to the clerk at my local store and get all my money back.

    And if you try it out and "just don't like it", then you can still get a full refund minus the shipping cost.

    All within 45 days of the day you pick it up. So basically there is absolutely no risk :). That's why I always risk it from GC whether it's with pics, without pics, looks good, looks not so good, whatever. Unless I can tell that it's in rough shape or damaged.

    The caveat here is having a local store, which I don’t. Nearest one is about 2 hours away. I’ve ordered 3 used guitars from GC and only one of 3 ( the first one ) ended up being a keeper. And the second 2 ended up costing me return shipping of about $50 per.

    I think if you do have a good local store then is is a good way to source used gear, but in my case not so much - especialy on a sight unseen guitar.

    So having said that, did anyone call or actually go check it out if they live close enough? Still for sale. Not my kind of guitar at all but I love hearing about people getting good deals ;-)

    I was kinda debating it but after tax and ship it’s not too far from what they typically do sell for used, and the body shape really isn’t my thing...

    I called yesterday... it’s black, missing back plate cover. One of the pickups is as the other is a mystery. Sales rep said it’s dusty but no major issues, so I assume there’s a nice gash somewhere...

    Hmm, listed as "great"...that doesn't sound so great?

    Eh, a back plate cover is a $5 part, not sure what @chimi42 meant to say re: the pickups but swapped pickups could actually mean something better than the Duncans that are in there, and dust is just dust.

    I once got a guitar from GC that was marked "excellent condition" that had a 5 inch long crack in the body from the trem cavity all the way to the bottom of the guitar. This ain't nothin :). Thank goodness for that ultra easy return policy though...

    Must have been this morning, it was still available last night. No way this should have lasted so long!

    If it was a different color than black i would have ordered it. I did have it in my cart for two days, had to talk myself out of it.
