I'm not worried about the value. It's mine.
Still, let's consider the value - A failed guitar, which was a re-issue of a failed guitar. Which was blown out for $349. In what is probably the worst colour. Permanently damaged/altered. And I spent more on the conversion and shipping than the guitar. I think about $470. Plus the customs fees to Canada. Plus the exchange rate to Canadian. So I probably have about $900 - $1000 into a guitar worth, what, $500?
But it is the only one. And it makes sense in my collection.
A 12-string, short-scale, upside-down, sparkly guitar. I still think I win.
Here's a neat idea - I could swap the neck and bridge at will and have a different colour and configuration of 12-string every week.


yep as long as youre happy with it, why not?

While your shop dude is correct with regards to upgrades (and nothing peeves me more than seeing k0rnfreak2002 trying to flip a $200 Squier with a $100 pickup set in it for $300 on eBay) I wouldn't say a 12-string conversion could be considered an "upgrade". Nobody shopping for a regular SS would buy this guitar thinking it had been improved upon in Super Sonic terms, but plenty of people looking for a 12-string in the Fender format might spring for it over a vintage XII, Strat XII or Vista Venus, depending on their tastes/what they plan on using it for.[/quote]

yep and it really sucks. but i wouldnt sell a cheap guitar with upgrades made nowdays. if i want to sell a cheap guitar nowdays i just put the cheap parts togheter again and boom you have that original guitar that sucks.

do you call me a k0rnfreak2002 because i like better pickups?

i can see why wanted to convert it to a 12 string when he did it for himself.

okay?

I don't think Paul was referring to you. Think it was a reference to something Fran said in another thrad.

Do you have any guitars that aren't Super-Sonics?


I missed this last time I looked at your comment.
I currently have 24 guitars, and nine of these are Super-Sonics. Others include:
Four parts-Esquires with 24.75" scale
2013 Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite
2011 Gibson Moderne XI
1977 hardtail Fender Stratocaster
1970 Fender Comp Mustang
1971 Fender Comp Mustang Bass
2007 Gretsch Billy Bo White Penguin
1979 Fender 12-String acoustic
2010 Fender Dick Dale Malibu Acoustic
2011 Squier Jaguar HH
Squier SS Jaguar Bass
Ibanez ORM1

Seven of the guitars are black - so some restraint shown, colour-wise

Here is an old picture:

OMG, all those guitars, lined up like that. I couldn't restrain myself from touching each one.

OR I'd think I'm in an art gallery.

Either way, that's cool.
