Selling a guitar ended up trading for a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry ll

Selling a beautiful Fender Telecaster, Gold hardware, flamed maple top, a limited 50th anniversary edition with a limited run of 1250 on Craigslist with no takers. Got an email asking if I would trade for a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry ll. Went in to tell my lovely bride about a trade offer and she said "why is it someone always wants to trade you another guitar, You already have one and that is why you are selling it" (I have several). It is 4:30 a.m. and I am just getting ready for work so she is still half asleep. I said " no now listen, he wants to trade a Kimber 45 for it". She sits up in bed and shouts "DO IT!". The Kimber is now sitting in a Ca. gun shop waiting for me to cool off for 6 more days (4 days down already) before I can go pick it up. I have shot my Bass Players Kimber and now I will have my own to shoot. I am a Sig lover and my .357 P229 Enhanced Elite is my main carry weapon but i may enlist the services of this new Kimber also. I love to research and have figured out that I am an idiot for buying it on one site and on another it is one of the best guns on the market. One thing for sure is that I am going to find out because this beauty has found its new home! The way my wife is talking about the Kimber I just may lose it....... Oh well maybe she will let me shoot it!

Welcome to the land of KT from St Lou and I can honestly say that's the first guitar for a Kimber story that I have ever heard...

Congrats and you will love that shooter for sure....It won't play you a song, but the sound of it going bang bang bang will be music to your ears.....

Yes music to my ears with both instruments! Sometimes you feel like a bang, Sometimes you feel like a song! Life is good in both scenarios!

Having a couple of Ultra's I can say you won't be disappointed in it at all...

Make sure that you clean and lube it before heading to the range...

Congrats on an excellent pistol. Those ultra's are very nice! I know because I've got an Ultra Raptor and love it. I know you will yours too.

I might have chosen the guitar, but I don't have ANY guitars, and I don't even play. From where I'm sitting typing, Leo Fender's radio store is about three miles due south. The building still exists. One of my carry guns is a P229 in 357 Sig. It's the Plain Jane, OG model.

Enjoy the new Kimber.
