    Mainly that the seller is the sole owner and that nobody else can claim ownership, like buying a vehicle.

    Wow - Super Thread. I pulled all the photos down so I could look at them over and over.

    An exceptional example of a Burst! My understanding is that it sold.

    Reminds me of this 1960 from Norm's which is reduced by the way from 350K to a mere 325K.I would think if this one sold it was for a lot less then the Norm guitar is going for.Similar guitars in my book one a little mintier and one a little more curl --should be about a wash to me as far as pricing.Thanks guys Mike B.Great Thread thanks for bumping it.

    Mike to be honest I am only guessing but I do know the owner wanted ~ $280 - $320K for this Burst.

    It has sold, but for what amount I am not positive.

    My guess is maybe $280 - $300K but that is just a guess & it is the cleanest '58 Burst I have ever seen, so from that perspective it is not a "normal" run of the mill Burst.

    More importantly I'd like to know if this is a great playing Burst or just another Vintage Guitar?

    Cheers, Rudi

    Without providing exact details I can confirm that this '58 has set (IMHO) a new price record for the last few years, for this outstanding piece of history. :)
    :applause: :applause: :applause:

    :hmm:..............& for all those who offered the previous nickel & dime prices, sometime back when this Thread started. :rolleyes:

    My regards to the previous owner, who I know will put the proceeds to good use for his young family. :wave:

    I hope the new owner enjoys his new Burst as much as we enjoyed seeing the pictures. :thumb: :)

    :cheers:

    BUMP - guess we'll have to suffice with the pics that are a year old :( still wondering how this one sounded.

    For the vault? - or museum?

    May need a new thread..... [what do we expect to be done with mint bursts?] - without being over dramatic or anything?

    I have been meaning to follow up on this to see exactly who bought it but I may not get a reply form the new owner etc. :fingersx:

    I'd also like to know who it sounds & plays. Great '58 this one. :thumb:

    :cheers:
