Atlanta is only about an hour and a half from me (I'm in Chattanooga, TN). I don't know where I'm gonna come up with that $1000.00 before someone else beats me to it though.........

seems to be. the guy "makes" these guitars all the time and marks them up by about double or triple what they go for. he's tried charging like $700 for a squier affinity jazzmaster.

That guitar is what’s called a “Buford Highway Special” in Atlanta. That can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the context. In this case... bad.

Man, I've been seeing this on craiglist everyday when I do my local search for offsets and other cool shit and hadn't clicked on it because it was so cringey. Now that I looked at the photos it's 10x worse than I thought. The corvette logo on the back of the neck :fp:
