It's just going to be hard right now to find someone not trying to "cash-in".
I've considered putting my half breed AK up for trade for a nice electric guitar, but I'd be pretty picky about the guitar, I'm looking for a Gibson Les Paul or an American Fender Strat. But I guess that would make me just as bad as anyone else cashing in, so I don't do it. Especially since I'm really wanting a pure American guitar, for a Chinese/Egyptian mixed AK type.
I have a friend who has offered me enough cash for it to buy a guitar I would like, but I still can't bring myself to sell it to him for that much. But I can't see myself selling it too cheap either and feeling like I missed out. So, I'm just hanging on to everything for now.
