    Noticed they didn't mention the price, unless it's hidden somewhere.

    Joe seems to have a knack for making money out of his vintage guitar collection.

    I think I need to start selling some Joe Bonamassa toilet paper or something.

    Funny. 15 of the kind that actually existed, but were rare. 40 of the kind that never existed.

    Let's see, if I forego retirement, eating every other day, grab a second job, and sell the kids for medical experiments I think I can pull it off without pissing off the wife.

    This might be the only case where purchasing guitars as investments actually paid off.

    That's cool and all but I'll stick with my MJT bodies and Musikraft necks. For about $1000 I can make any Tele or Strat or Jag or Jazzmaster or P or J bass I want. And it's exactly the way I like it.

    No knock to Fender, I love them.

    I'm seeing $4650 for that Tele (still too much for my blood). That's from the GC links earlier in this thread.

    Geez, if Joe goes any further up Fender's butt, he'll be coming out their nose!

    I like his strategy. Buy up all the original vintage Fender amps and guitars and then sell reissues.

    At this point once these guitars sell out and adding the 150 twins he's already sold, Joe will have grossed about $830,000 for Fender this year. And it's only April.
