    Not selling so raise prices... Yeah buddy.

    That sounds like da Gummit is running things at Gib with that logic.

    2018 Standards are now $3100 and some change. Thats pretty incredible. i mean they are good guitars but come on now..

    Let me rephrase that.. I heard they are good guitars. I have only ever purchased used except one time... And the ones I purchased were always in the early 90s.

    The new one I purchased a couple years ago was an R0 and it was a disaster weight balance wise.

    I'm from Laguna Beach, CA, circa 1964-present and am 71 years old soon to be 72. You mentioned a quote by Ken Kesey. In the '60's I rode on "Further" a few times, even helped paint it. I worked with Bear putting a sound system in it a little while after the Dead started riding on the bus.
