    If that's real-deal rosewood, you might want to consider the luthier market--folks who make guitars and other stringed instruments are nearly always in need and pay good prices. Last time I checked, there was a thriving market via the Guild of American Luthiers. They have a a publication with a classifieds section. And those speakers are amazing. Any chance of repairing the blown one? It would be worth it...

    thanks for the advice,im going to make a good killing on the tables so will stick to what i know,but thanks something to consider in the future.
    yeah i will repair it,well the plan is to throw a tiny pioneer tweeter in there.the black balls (!!!) are only 8 inches in diameter so they dont really produce mind blowing sound but look the biz.i bought them more for show then go

    I would take those to someone who makes speakers and have them redone. So cool. One audio store I used to get stuff at made speakers. They sounded really good.

    Also found these shoes, no idea what they are but they look well constructed and are in pretty good shape. 11.5D.

    WOW. So all of DM7's posts got me super jelly, so while I was in LA today on business, decided to check out a few thrifts. NOTHING. But then, I stopped in on a TJ Maxx, and I most certainly found something. I'm not going to divulge price, but lets just say the "compare to" price was missing a 0. :slayer:

    Please note I am not listing the size on purpose, this post is purely for bragging purposes.

    I'm sick to my stomach knowing that we're the same size and that I will never be able to coerce that slice of heaven from you (all the best since I'm currently broke anyhow). Just kidding....amazing score man. Stunningly gorgeous.
