cool! Forum brother?
Steven the actor is a fine gitslinger!!!!!
Steven Seagal - Blues show - YouTube
And I'm glad it was sold and out of the hands of the shirtless and sweaty neoclassical speed demon
Segal, Seagal...you're sure it wasn't owned by A Flock Of Seagulls?
Anyway, do you think that the HM treatment added to the valuation at sale? I think the publicity on the other forum helped a lot but when it comes down to it, did the seller recoup that additional cost? It's an honest question, not stirring any pots.
You're talking about this guy?
I always thought it was funny how Steve was ridiculed despite playing and singing just as good as 90% of those "legitimate" Blues guys. Mob mentality maybe?
You should post this question on the other forum. I am sure the vintage guys there would be happy to answer your questions.
They are discussing this in the ebay section as well, but thanks for the tip
He's probably just as good as Buddy Guy is now.
This is funny. I'm talking total nonsense and nobody has a problem with it, go figure.
D'oh............that is about the 3rd time I have stuffed that one up. I am an idiot. I have to apologize about that.
Chris if a deposit was taken, your friend will be happy, no doubt.
Sharky Jean is in France & I can understand the prices in the EU........you have the import Duty & VAT which inflates the prices considerably. Nothing like international free trade from the EU perspective.
Also some of the Guitars that Guitar Point have were possibly bought at higher prices than today's market.
Yeah it definitely would have helped get it out there. I think he'll break even, which is all he wanted.
For the life of me I can not understand how stores like that can stay in business, Norm's, FA and of course guitarpoint.
Glad to hear it. Thanks
Sure but its not a refin at least
the answer is extremly simple!! they sell enought stuff to keep in bussines!
Funny you said "stuff" and not guitars.
Over the years I've met some guys who didn't move a single item in their regular inventory yet they stayed in business by selling "stuff"
i think you are not as clever as i thought.....

Definitely. Serial number and finish issues scare away a lot of buyers. Putting all the cards on the table, long before the guitar was ever offered for sale, would make buyers more comfortable and willing to accept the issues. All questions were already answered by the step by step pictures.
Kim's work speaks for itself and his experience with vintage guitars is very reassuring, so having his trusted name attached to a guitar is a massive plus.
I usually joke with the guy who fixes my guitars that I've never paid him a dollar. The money I spent on his work (and sometimes more) always comes back with resale.
I think it was unethical for HM to put a new serial on it. Replacing an original serial after a refin is one thing, but this takes it to a whole new level.
The Burst had no number so a donor guitar (a legit but destroyed MelodyMaker) had it's legit serial number transplanted= no harm done unless you look at old ledgers and find that the # was used on a MelodyMaker. The important distinction is that there can not be another Gibson guitar "out there" with a legit matching number. I don't see what's unethical about that?
Would I have done it that way? Nope, but the owner did the right thing nonetheless.
