The PE-150 I'd want $450 for also (with hard shell case + shipping).

I know they have pulled some heavy cash on eBull but this one was altered when I got it so I doubt it would get above 6 bills. Besides, I'd rather any of my guitars stay here anyway. The tuners have been swapped out for Schallers IIRC, and the bridge is a Quann Badass. I reset the anchors for the bridge but never refinished it, just put a couple of felt washers underneath it. I have kept it for how it plays, like butter. That and those P90s are killer. There is one unique thing about this guitar. I reversed the electrical and magnetic polarity of the bridge pickup so now it has a nice Fenderish "quack" with the volumes adjusted right, and since each pickup has it's own volume you can adjust how much Fender quack there is. Both pickups have been carefully double dipped and they are nowhere near as microphonic as they were when I got it.

Squid is up first, then Jorg, then Nikki but the shipping there would be painful.

Regretfully, I'm not in a position to offer a home for it right now...but it's a righteous guitar at a very fair price. Best of luck with the sale & same to the next owner.

Maybe I am asking too much for either guitar. Or, no one has been given access to this forum since I set it up. I would think at least the PE-150 would go as they seldom come up for sale on eBull. I'll give it another day or two then I guess I will suffer the idiots on eBay. I really do hate to sell guitars there.

Hi Crusty - I'm really very interested on the PE-150 !
Would be nice if you could tell me something about the amount of shipping,
so I can calculate the total cost include german tax and customs.
I can´t even expect that I'll have the same conditions as a U.S. shipping !

Perhaps we should discuss further via PM .......

PM me your address and I will pack it and try to figure out what the shipping would be. It would have to be in US dollars.

I don't know how to see who has access (or who doesn't) to this section of the forum. Could you post up a list of who's currently included?

I believe it is done through user permissions.

I sold the PE-60 some time back. The case with a guitar in it is my Westbury Standard which I was getting ready to sell also.
