I have a metallic olive green x165. I found it at a hole in the wall pawn shop for $60, but i bargained the guy for $35. Lucky me the guitar is in near mint condition. Only thing is that it doesn't have the whammy bar. I love my x165, and consider it one of the best guitars I have ever played. If any one could help me find a whammy bar I would greatly appreciate it.

You can have a non-correct bar retrofitted by machinig it, but it'd be more expensive to get it done privately.
I'd stick to ebay.
Corsair put up a nice one.
I'll search for more.
