    Hi All,

    I will be in Mumbai this June (from London) and am offering to bring along WHATEVER guitar you need. Obviously only 1!!! But let me know what you want....and we can work out details about payment etc.

    Why am I making this offer? - Well, to be honest - I'd like to help out someone who wants to spend hard earned money on a great guitar but can't get much for it in India.

    The catch - None!! I do not intend making money on this...am already loaded!! Also, am a great guy - that's why!!!

    So, need to know by this month end ! Besides this if anyone needs non-electronic stuff like picks/strings etc. let me know. If I have space will carry.

    Conditions: The only condition is to pre-pay! No, it is not a scam - just that I do not want to buy a £1000 LP and be stuck with it 'cuz a pimple-faced me-too rocker boy was not authorized by his parents to make this purchase....so get real....

    Selection Process: Tough one...can anyone suggest???

    rust: Would you consider guitars from eBay? They will be half the retail prices and very good condition!! That may be a better idea than buying retail as UK is a little bit more expensive than the US!!

    Fictional: Got your PM. Have replied!

    Nemo: Let me know

    Guys: How the hell do I decide who to get the guitar for...lol!!!! Suggest a method (should be fun too) to select the person...how about you guys offer me something (non monetary and definitely nothing se*ual) fun....and I will choose...what say?

    fr wants a guitar- im guessing uve already spoken to him.....

    i need strings and plectrums... for some reason the regualr slinkies are not availablee at furtadoes - they never have it in stock....

    also id really like a 12 pack of tortex picks - the smaller ones - not the ones u get here in india...

    if u know of any good wesite that i can pay online at other than ebay and deliver to ur place....pls. let me know - ebay ripped me off once by charging me a listing fee after saying that they wouldnt... i refuse to pay them.. so i cant use ebay....


    u seem to be a decentfellow who wont rip any of us of... im quite sure of that...

    i want Nikki Nova.

    Nikki Nova it is!! hehehe

    Death Dr: What I meant was, I could buy over eBay (personally) and then get them for you and you can pay me in Mumbai...let me go hunting on eBay for the best deal. As far as buying retail, UK is expensive and sometimes stuff in India is better. How much do you pay for Slinkys in Mumbai if you don't mind - will help me understand if it costs the same or lesser...let me know...

    I think a better 9and faster) way of discussing this is over chat :

    Scary - bought in June of 1996 for $900 from a store closing down in Atlanta! A steal eh?
  12. Mr. Scary

    Mr. Scary Bass-tard Child

    Damn right its a steal. Thats something like how my cousin got an ESP M-1000 for $800 during a clearance sale....when does that happen?
  13. blackmamba

    blackmamba Rocker Monk

    well there are sales in summer, then winter, then christmas etc.....some online stores have scratch and dent specials as well...a light scratch here and there or a customer return - can go as low as 50% off the MSRP....gotta look out...and then of course there is eBay and Craigslist.....so....

    Regretfully - I have to withdraw this offer for the time being as my trip to India has been postponed - project changes. I will confirm my next date and make an offer to bring something again. So, all you guys...as Kurt would say...'All Apologies' :)

    Think what you wish RIP. Anyway - I have been delayed by 1 more month 'cuz of work. July-end is my tentative date. If that's the attitude, then I'm not interested. Just goes to show - if you try to do some good - you get egg on your face. Fedup!

    blackmamba: .. tell me about your pandora px4 .. i am thinking of getting one .(125 GBP on sale) .. this would be my first digital proc. .... is it good?
  19. blackmamba

    blackmamba Rocker Monk

    Shahrukh - frankly speaking PX4 is not bad if all you do is play over headphones which I do....I don't use amps anymore cuz I have a lil one at home who does not appreciate the loud noise too much!! Check ebay - you may get a used one for between £60-80!! Good luck! The effects are good quality...infact studio quality. Amp simulators are excellent! I don't use the distortion too much so can't comment much but it does have a punchy tone. You can even connect a jam-along disc....which I do...since my lil one is too young to play the drums yet!! lol!
