    Why buy a '59 for that much, when you can buy a new one for 2-3k?

    Law of supply and demand. Rich collectors will pay that kind of money.
    Those guitars aren't really geared to sell to players, unless they're rich too.

    Ridiculous price, agreed.

    that is a down payment on a beach house in Florida. I think the beach house definitely will get you more laid than an old guitar.

    Come on! Its vintage, collectable, and an investment... there are 100 0more reasons man!

    I think its silly money, but frankly, if I was rich, I'd sure buy it. Why not if you can?!

    Hell yeah!

    This one really reminds me of the one in "SpinalTap":

    "The sustain...listen to it."
    "I don't hear anything."
    "Well...you would though...if it were playing."

    Buying a nice house in florida, oceanfront is also a nice investment. And you can't accedently drop it on the floor, and having it break on you...

    It is beautiful. That kind of money can start R&D on a time machine & buy it brand new!

    It's now 550K.....must have been a type at 450k:shock: C'mon that's just phishing for an idiot. The market is DOWN right now, not up......and unless celebrity owned they weren't getting 400k when the market was up. That's a 275k-300k burst tops. Still alot of jack, but about half what they're "asking" for it.:rofl:

    Flick, are we talking Dirk Ziff prices or everyone else? 1mm in 09? NO WAY unless this is celebrity owned like the Green burst, etc. If you've got 300k to spend, call Ganzler, Margoff (spelling), etc and they can find them for you. Perfect and without any issue? Not necessarily. Nice and original? Sure.

    Hey, I think this guitar is really stupid at $15,000, even more stupid than a $550,000 Les Paul:

    EVH GUITAR FRANKENSTEIN REPLICA VAN HALEN FENDER RELIC - eBay (item 110218670355 end time Feb-02-08 17:00:34 PST)

    I'm currently wearing a $4,000.00 MSRP Rolex that some of you may think is crazy...it isn't even gold and doesn't tell time as accurately as a $30 Casio ..... I own several fountain pens worth $500 that don't even write as well as a $5.00 rollerball....you guys play $5,000 Gibson historic guitars that may not play better than a $2,000 standard.... And is a $2,000 standard really worth that much?

    I guess what I'm saying is that we are all crazy....The only difference is how much money you have in your bank account to go crazy with.
