    Nice guitar, but I wouldn't buy from tune_o_matic even if I could afford it.

    Holy cow, that's gorgeous:eek:.

    Maybe sometimes it's better that I come across guitars I would love to have but will NEVER be able to afford, rather than come across guitars I would love to have that I can convince myself I can afford.

    I was curious about that myself.

    Were the dates and initials not penciled in for that particular vintage?

    Sorry, but I don't get it. Can somebody explain to me why that guitar is worth that much money?

    Excluding nostalgia, of course.

    Seems like I remember a similar rig on ebay about a year ago going for over twice that amount. Heck, might not be a bad investment while waiting for the economy to recover.
    I'm pontificating of course, I'm not in the running.

    That is almost as precious as the John 5 vid I saw the other night.
