    Just for fun
    Of all the equipment in this photograph,
    What did I pay the most for?

    We'll begin with no other information than the photo. Most of it I bought used. My CV I bought new.

    For the showcase showdown, name the three most expensive pieces..

    I've got some some Rice-a-Roni and and a 64oz laundry detergent for the winner!

    Someone paid close attention to the question.

    Ding Ding!

    It's also the only item bought New. If i recall, in 2011 I paid €330 from Thomann. 6.6 pounds (I took it across the street and weighed it on the produce scale at Edeka Markt. They were used to the American doing strange things in Hamburg)
    If it's not a one-piece body, somebody better find me a seam. Cause I've had it under all the lights and I've never been able to find one.

    Great job, the game lasted minutes!
    Top three still wide open.

    Was not as successful as I hoped. Oh well.
    As to the guitars, the correct order is:
    1. 2011 CV- €330 (it might even have been cheaper and the Custom that price.)
    2. '82 MIJ Flying V. $200 with road case (and one trip to Fort Worth and back through the gnarliest Texas storm I've seen yet.)
    3. '73 MIJ/MIK (who can really know with this one, no identifying marks at all. I dated the switch to' 73 on Reddit.) $150. Ya gotta love punking the pawn. No more than two minutes after they took it off the wall they had my card.
    4. The Jackson. Under 100. Leave it at that.
