So, believe it or not, Craigslist.com works here. All you have to do is select your region, country, and city and BOOM! just like home, there are a bunch of classifieds at your fingertips.
This is heaven, because that’s how I found this beauty:
It’s a Crafter GAE 8 guitar. It retails new for about 438 euros, which is about $600. Here’s the kicker: I got it for about $250.
Where did I find such a deal, you ask?? Craigslist.com. Another foreigner was selling it and I swooped in to snatch it up. I met him on July 31st when he played it at an open mic night in Imaike, which is about a 20 minutes train ride from where I live.
The venue is called the Plastic Factory and at the end of every month they have an open mic night where anyone can stop by, sign up, and play for a small crowd. I was surprised that the crowd was mostly comprised of foreigners, but it’s all good, because then they know the words.
I totally lucked out on this guitar and I’m excited to play it. Hell, George and I have already agreed to play the next open mic night. I’m excited.
