    wait if possible

    Dude u can get a new givsons electric at 3.5k.And strangers amp as far as my usage is concerned performed well but i have heard that they have a tendency to pic up radio signals and produce intonation effect ie, sound as a radio service:think:
    But i have neva come accross this problem on ma stranger Cube 20 ever.
    So if u think that waiting any longer wont provide an increase in ur budget, i think that u can pounce on this deal:beer:

    Intonation IS NOT catching the radio frequencies.

    Intonation means your guitar is perfectly made ... so that the 12th fret is exactly one octave higher than open string. And is sounds same as 12 fret harmonic.

    Vishwa ( :Lighten: ), the deal is cheap. If money aint your problem, then wait and look around. But if you cant muster more money than this, go for it.
