Fifth item up for trade!

Alright so here it is, my fifth item is up for trade! A Squier by Fender Telecaster Standard Series in Black Metallic Rosewood.

This guitar is in very good condition with only a few scratches at the back coming from a bad stance on a guitar stand. But as you can see from the pics, it looks really good!

Here are the full Specs from the Squier website:

Fourth trade completed!

21 04 2011

Meet Josh Bissonnette, the fourth fellow swapper to help me out on my trading adventure. He really wanted an acoustic guitar and I really wanted to make my next trade. So I decided to accept his trade offer of a Squier by Fender Telecaster electric guitar.

After getting some feedback regarding my acoustic guitar from other potential swappers, I got the sense that more interest would be generated with an electric guitar. This is why I decided to accept the trade. Plus, an electric guitar gets me back to the gadget end of things! 🙂

More information and more detailed pictures of my fifth item will be posted tomorrow so make sure to check back!

Thanks Josh!

Thanks for the offers! Potentially huge trade coming…

17 04 2011

I would like to thank everyone that have sent in trade offers already! I am happy that this item is generating more interest than my previous items. Thanks again to Jordan Zalis for the sweet guitar performance, I’m sure lots of the attention is due to your awesome guitar playing.

One potential swapper has caught my attention. We are still working out the details and I am hoping it comes through! This could be huge! Please check back often for updates.

As always, I need your help – Please make sure to share the word by retweeting my tweets on Twitter and sharing my announcements on Facebook. I would love it if my announcements would spread like wild fire! 🙂

You’re in for a treat everyone! I am no musician so I thought, what better way to showcase my fourth item by having it played by a talented musician.

So I finally did it! The computer has been traded. What did I trade for you ask? – a guitar! Yep, I am truly out of my element right now. But the trade was a great one that I really couldn’t refuse. Thank you Maria for the swap!

This guitar is a Jasmine by Takamine S33. It’s been used only a few times and is in immaculate condition. It also came with a soft case, a few picks and a guitar basics book.

Celebrity treatment

22 03 2011

I’ve been getting a bit more attention at work since the interview on CTV. My story has just today been published on our corporate intranet which was pretty cool! My colleagues even changed my name plate (see below).

I’ve been working at Innovapost for over 6 years now and I have to say that it’s a great place to work and the people that I work with everyday cannot be beat! Awesome team!
