Hello from Seattle! I don't play guitar but I support my son's habit. He's got a 2008 TAT II Iceberg and just got a good deal ($1000) on a 2007 Horus Scarab/GO. Needs to be cleaned up but no major damage. No case but nice double-size gig bag. Trussrod and trem covers missing too but not a biggie.

Hi and welcome to the forum! I'm very glad to see a parent that supports their son this much. $1000 for a Scarab Horus is definitely a killer deal as even used they run for about $1500-$1600 in general.

Welcome!
I see you're over on BMusic as well?

I'd like to see some pics of the guitars, and as Budd said, it's nice to see a dad support his son as much as it seams you do.

Got it on ebay. It was not used in a while and is missing the trussrod and trem covers. Rob Marcello used it. There's a video on this site where he's playing a Horus Scarab.

Yeah. I didn't believe the seller at first but it's the one in this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baPMMDDosGE

It has the same Dimarzio neck pickup and missing trussrod cover. Still just a guitar.

Why did Rob sell such a kick ass guitar for such a low price?? He must have gotten some sick custom Caparison or something.

Came with gig bag only. No case and tools. Had rusty strings and wasn't used in a while.
