    I get that name dropping can be viewed as crass in some circles, but it seems like, if there’s an appropriate time to do it, it’s when you’re trying to shake money out of someone’s pockets. It seems crazy to ask someone to pay $175K, plus shipping, for something owned by a celebrity, and then start playing coy about which celebrity actually owned it. The bulk of the asking price is obviously based on that prior owner and not, for example, the number of knobs or switches or pickups featured on the guitar. Or is this guitar really so famous i should have recognized it on sight? I’ve seen the unidentified guitarist, whose name rhymes with Frilly Scribbons, in concert, and I’ve don't recall seeing a PRS Explorer in his arsenal. And let’s face it, people are going to pay a lot more for a Frilly Scribbons guitar than one owned by, I don’t know, Fred Durst.

    If it's legit then that thing should be in a museum or Hard Rock Cafe somewhere

    What a tool bag! Just cuz it's a one off doesn't make it worth 6 figures. I guess you can't fix stupid.

    Stop being picky people, it comes 'fully documented', that alone makes it worth every cent. Now let's see how much I have in Monopoly money ....

    In light of the fact that it's Billy Gibbons' guitar, I can see why the price is so high. The seller should have noted that in the description.

    Economics 101 says if its worth it to just one person, then its worth it. And considering ZZ Top's following, I bet out there somewhere in one person who's thinking about snagging it.

    That very typical of Ed Roman's so called great guitars.
    Oh ! He must own Morite by now- get them for a few hundred thousand and , by the way, you pay for the postage an insurance. :eek:

    Striking. As he takes command of the stage in his flowing white robe and melts every face in the crowd.

    PRS: yawn
    I am probably one of the few people in the guitar world who think PRS is the most overhyped guitar ever. Yes, they have beautiful "Ten Tops". So what?
    I purchased a Ten Top 24 Custom many years ago but didn't keep it.

    Yes- We get such convoluted news from the US we don't know what to expect- except poor souls getting killed because of a piece of constitution written in the 1700s.
