In the mid 90's a buddy of mine had me check out Uncle Lou's stash and ended up buying the '59er I recommended for him. He paid $mid20Ks which seemed about right at the time. No haggling whatsoever, price seemed fair, cash changed hands, end of story. I assume he's serious about what he wants for the guitar (whatever that pricerange may be). I don't think that space-cadet's ownership ads a nickel to its value, it's just an extreme example of a flamey Burst, find another one like it. But there's not much of a celebrity factor here IMO since it's not really tied to the history of those goofballs.
