I had a fender bender about a week ago (not my fault, thank heaven) and my insurance company has decided to total my car. So, I'm going to be getting a new one.

I want to put down as much money as possible, so I've decided to sell my Carvin SH-550. I'll post pictures and a description on the Classified forum.

Fred - you got it backwards! When your car is totalled it's time to take some of that cash to buy more guitars... not sell em! grin

+1 on keeping the guitar and driving an older car...but good luck with it Fred and sorry to hear about your little bit of bad luck. Be thankful it was only a fender bender...

Not the Carvin!! Glad you weren't hurt, that's the main thing. If you haven't settled with your insurance company, the price they give you is totally negotiable.

Just how little does your insurance company think your car was worth that you need to sell one of your CHILDREN to make a good downpayment?
I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!

Cars come & go in our lives. A guitar, however, can be an important companion all the way down the road. If that Carvin is 'the right one', you better keep it.

I'm sorry to read of that, and I hope that you can work it out to keep your guitar!

I lost a best friend this summer, got defriended on facebook this week, then today I wanted to load some naughty Halloween pics I took to photobucket, and I came back to my building and someone asked me about them-because they saw them on facebook.
At least my guitars are okay.
