    Psychology. People claim they are smarter than that, experiments prove they are not.

    Beautiful specimen but I can't imagine that it will get close to that figure. Then again, there are many wealthy folks who may be willing to pay that.

    Guaranteed to have never been played above the 7th fret.

    What price mojo? Cheap compared to the $46 million Strad viola offered recently.

    I pined after vintage for so long... but then after playing a few I realised that often vintage just means old and worn. Small sample size, but the ones I played did not feel very nice at all.

    Also, I don't feel like I'll ever be a good enough player to justify the vintage look.

    Weird when you think about it, all that money for a second hand guitar when you can get a real good brand new one for less than a tenth of that asking price.

    At least it comes from one of the best sellers of vintage guitars over here on eBay, shouldn't be any doubt that it's real. Hell of a lot of money though!

    This is the one from pawn stars apparently, that those crooks gave 13 grand to that kid for it a little while ago, or it could be a different one of course.

    Antiques Road Show wouldn't value it a shilling over 10 to 15 thousand U.S.

    Damn, I love that show.

    The only vintage guitar I've ever played was a 50s gold top Gibson Les Paul. The intonation was horrible and the tone wasn't particularly inspiring either.

    I also own a vintage 1965 Ampeg SB-12 amp, but the original Jensen speaker has blown twice and the output transformer has recently fried too. Sounded great when it was working but is not so fun now that expensive servicing is required.

    My point? Owning vintage stuff can be awesome until something stops working, then all you have is an expensive piece of furniture.

    Anyway, even if I could afford something like this I seriously doubt if I'd ever consider actually getting it, unless it sounds absolutely amazing of course - but since I already feel that my 2003 Fender AVRI 52 Tele sounds amazing it would be very difficult to justify spending $48000+- more for this thing.

    To each their own I guess...

    The case for Reissues just gets stronger by the day.

    Even if I had £35K to spend, I wouldn't buy a vintage Fender (or Gibson). That's just collector madness.

    I'm more interested in value for money, and there's some superb Fenders being built today, that are better made and better value for money.

    I'd rather have a 2K CS Nocaster and £33K in the bank.
