Wow, this gave me a major chubby!
I was bummed out to hear he closed (I had moved out of state for a number of years and heard second hand) he had the best customer service. Any idea what he was or is doing for PRS?
Wow, cool pics! Thanks for posting! Fuller's Vintage Guitars (the first booth shown) is just a few miles from my house!
Amazing buncha guitars! Thank you for posting!
I couldn't go to a show like that unless I had the willpower to leave my checkbook at home
I'm embarrassed to see a 72 or 73 LPC just like mine there. I thought those Norlins POS wouldn't make the cut to get in the door
Just to be sure you noticed, the Bicycle was $2,000.00 not $200.00.
BTW - You can go to Heritage Auctions website and search on the keywords - "Graham Nash" for good pictures and support info on the beautiful Graham Nash collection guitars that were on display at the show.
Back in the day, my buddy had that bike.
One day we were hanging out, and he thought it was a good idea to jump it off the street by his house into this big drainage ditch. Get airborne and all that. I said ok, works for me.
He pedaled like a maniac for a good hundred yards, bounced over the curb, and lifted the front end as he flew through the air. It was beautiful.
And then he landed.
The frame broke at the neck, the forks and front wheel went end over end, and my buddy flew off the seat and landed on that really cool shifter.
While I was laughing my ass off, he was rolling on the ground cursing all of creation. As I live and breathe, that is my most favorite memory.
(Now, back on topic.)
Lots of stuff to look at, nothing to buy.
I sure do wish they'd (whoever they are) have guitar shows up in the Boston area...................................
You made my day dannyh. Wow. Thanks!
I feel the same way. There's a '72/73 LP Deluxe that looks exactly like mine. Only difference is I routed mine the week I bought it ('73) for humbuckers. But it's only $3500 - I can sleep at night
The one that's exactly like mine is probably being used as an anchor to hold down the table
That is exactly what I would have said. For me, I had to accept a parts bike. Got my black banana seat and butterfly handle bars and i was set. But that bike was great to look at and useful.
Banana seats, sissy bars, real toxic chrome plating....the kids today don’t know what they’re missing....
not one but *two* birth year tele's
yer killin' me, dannyh
What kills me is seeing guitars that passed through my hands and how much they're going for now.
That very first Strat in the first picture you posted looks like Richard Thompson's. Do you know if it is or was?
No I don’t know...I think that booth was Fullers Guitars from Houston, you might email them.
I hear ya on your first comment. I owned and later sold a few guitars like you might see at a show like this, got decent money for them at the time too. But nothing approaching prices like these. It’s crazy.
Those are asking prices. But you're right, even with room to negotiate, the prices I saw were pretty steep. Add to that how easy it is to fake an old Fender, and I just don't have any interest in the vintage market any more.
The height of the market was over 10 yrs ago.
The vast majority of that stuff is going home with whoever brought it.
A small amount is changing hands through dealer trades .
Having gone to a bunch of them for a 15 yr period as the market was really building up it would bum me out to go to one now.
(Those amp prices are like a comedy bit ! If there is any wonder what created the market for Kemper ...)
