I think we need to get our Joe's and Tom's straight. I thought he was talking about Joe Ganzler.
Considering that Joe B has been buying up almost every 'burst in sight over the past couple of years, and Joe G just sold off his only 'burst, with probably no intention of getting back into it, the "Joes", I thought, was an easy one. With the "Toms", however, I did insert Wittrock's last name at the last second, as I thought about you and the interest that you've expressed in this guitar. By all means, we'd love to see you go after this one, Tom! As long as you promise not to play it! It's way too nice to play!
Yea. Your right about Joe. The guitar should be preserved. I really just meant someone in tht crowd.
I promise I would only play it in the dark and only when wearing a micro-fiber suit with cashmere gloves.
This I have to see..........................
Didn't TW say he is not buying Burst today and he only has ones that he bought why back when prices were lower?
BTW, I have also sold a Historic that was too nice to get damaged. And a friend sold a mint 54 Goldtop because auf this.
That TW sounds like a reasonable guy.
Gotta keep this thread relevant.
The gloves are off Tom.......................right "back" at you.
Tag needs to pick this one up so I can get a stab a playing it.
(I can find gloves )
I know you can't compare the two situations but I once bought a pair of early 70's Telecasters, a blonde blackguard and a sunburst Thinline from the original owner. The guy had bought them new and never played them. Original "under the beds". They went under MY bed! I'd open the cases occasionally and look at them then put them away again. I was frightened to put the tiniest mark on them and this Burst is the same. The moment the first scratch or ding or patch of fade hits it you've done a pile of $$$ because that is NOT what this guitar is about!
Funny, I think it was in this thread that I got yelled at for suggesting this guitar belongs in a museum instead of being played. You're right, that's NOT was this guitar is about.

Update for those interested.
This '58 Burst has now been sold. The owner Emailed me last night & said a buyer made a thorough inspection & bought the Guitar.
No idea who the buyer is at this point in time.
I have an idea what he is, more than happy I suppose, at least I would.
I hope he is member here and will post a picture heavy NVGD
Just read this entire thread, what a read and what a guitar!! Congrats to the new owner!
Just for funz I had a '59 that clean with a factory booboo where the switch operated backwards. It had very little flame. Tom sold at least one of five bursts that weekend for $35k? (58 faded and curly) and I got $20k for my unplayed guitar and was starting to sweat it.
Look how things change.
Curiosity has gotten the best of me in regards to something that came out during the course of the thread.
Is it normal to have a contract when selling/purchasing a vintage guitar? I can understand a receipt, but a contract? They aren't the same in most cases.
Finally then, what would be contained in such a contract?
