    Not a chance.

    Nobody is going to pay $100 million dollars for an effect pedal.

    Not even if were a one-of-a-kind, home-built pedal by Jimi himself.

    Not even if it were the principle pedal on all his recordings, irrefutable.

    Not even if it came with his Marshall stack and curly cord, and CBS strat.

    Nope. Not $100 million.

    One million? -Sure. There are plenty of high-dollar collectors.

    Two million? -perhaps.

    Three million? -Maybe if a few high-rolling collectors fought over it at an auction.

    But that's about it.

    I'm with Dave. I will be surprised if it tops $1 million. If it was one of his Strats that he played and was photographed using? More, but most people haven't the foggiest idea what a Wah pedal is. While a collector would love to tell people "This was used by Jimi at Woodstock!" He'll get tired of explaining what it actually is.

    Maybe Steven Segal will pick it up...

    That's ridiculous. I wouldn't go a dime over $75 million even if they tossed in Earnhardt's new wife.

    well I see in the article that they're hoping it goes for up to 100 Thousand at auction...only place I see "100 Million" is in the misprinted title....
