I paid 1999.99 for my Parallel Universe American Elite Telecaster HSS. I would do it again if I didn't already have it.
$600 for a 1967 D-35...in about 1974.
My wife bought me my SRV Strat, so that is where I voted. The most I spent was a new Baja. Overall, very happy with both. I know a $4000 custom will be better than both, but I don't play enough / well enough to appreciate or justify the difference.
Spent about $700 on my Gibson SG. Never really had the money to spend more than $1000 on a guitar. Payment plans are the devil, but they've made it possible to get some decent gear.
Had my ngd 2 weeks ago an Eric Johnson thinline Strat
$2400 Canadian plus tax . Best part my boss paid for it as a thank you. Most I ever spent was $ 450 for my 1972 black Tele custom in 1973 was a huge thing for me as I was making $3.50 an hour at the time
I just shelled out 3 Grand for a new Gibson J-45 acoustic/electric vintage sunburst.
The most I ever spent was on a SHO~BUD PRO-II Double 10 Pedal Steel guitar $3750-
My first 330 was bought in the early 90s for $400 from a small ship. My best deal was a Trini Lopez Custom for $400 at GC a couple of years later. Neither I nor GC knew what it was. I was sold on the humbuckers, ebony fretboard and Gibson name.
I've bought primarily used guitars through the years . The most I spent was $700 for a '62 Oly white Strat in 1980 . Recently spent $550 for a Reverend Sensei Jr.
I paid almost $1500 for a deluxe edition strat with the S-1 switch and she's lovely. The better guitar is the American Player strat msrp $999⁹⁰ I got for $600. I have two Teles Squier and Mexi, but I may use the S-D 59' minibucker on the Mexi and put it in the classic vibe Tele.I have a glacier blue 60s anniv.Strat that needs to be played before I decide to scrap her, I have a Frankenstein guitar possibly my favorite that is a Squer Jag-master with an Ibanez Roadster Ii neck that would bleed flames with proper puppies. My rare Ibanez Artcore TM-71 Talman would be incredible if I added a Godswood bridge or Pearly Gates neck, possibly a Gibbons Whiskerbucker in the bridge,.. My 2008 LP studio supposedly has some darkbursts in it but I am not certain. I also have a Hondo Ii professional Fender Lead (something, with 2 Seymour humpups) though it's [email protected] to dis'it
Approximately $5,000 for A Gibson Les Paul Custom in 2016 and $5600 for a Wine Red Gibson L4CES hollowbody, dual humbucker, archtop in 2012. Both have real ebony fretboards instead of richlite or rosewood. Definitely worth it. I have had a lot of offers from people to buy those guitars from me, but I still have both and will not sell them. The L4CES does feed back very easily, and not in a good way, if you get too close to an amp or a monitor. But that's to be expected with a hollowbody jazzbo guitar.
Nice! Looks like you "still have the old tagger on it," a la Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap, LOL.
$950 for a Hot Rod '62 Strat. That's puny Australian dollars, so under $700 in greenbacks.
Was it worth it? You betcha, it was a steal.
My Squier 70's Vintage Modified strat that I bought 3 years ago cost me €370 new. Other than that I think the most expensive one in todays money must be the pre lawsuit Memphis Les Paul copy that I bought 2nd hand in 1984 for 7000 Bfr (around €175) at that time but inflation corrected it would be around €415 now.
The rest is a series of 2nd hand buy that never wher more exensive than €200 and a few steals under € 100.
€1780 (in cash!) In the summer of 2005 for a Fender Jazz Bass 1975 Reissue, the most beautiful bass I've had, looked gorgeous in his natural ash/maple wood finish but.. ..heavy as hell! Eventually the bass was stolen from my car in the winter of 2010 and never ever found since.
The most? In 2016, I paid $3450 for my 2007 Collings City Limits. I was in the used market for an R8/R9, budgeting up to $4200 if necessary. I like it better than any LP I've played. At any price.
About $1500 is the most I've ever paid.
£550 (~$700) for my HW1 Tele in 2006. Made a few tweaks over the years but mostly unaltered.
If I was regularly gigging I would treat myself to something fancy and Thinline ~$2000 mark but it would be purely an act of indulgence
2700 ish plus for an ebony Gibson Dove in 2005 is the most i've ever paid, second most is my LP standard that i just got for 2500 ish. Prior to that.. way prior back to my first nice guitar in 1990, Martin D-28 just about 1000. In between I have a stratocaster, 4 telecasters, a casino and a sheraton a 62 AV P-bass and a few other acoustics.
