    My most expensive guitar is ES-335 with figured maple top, back and sides. Around 3,5k$.

    I have never reached 2k for any of my guitars. A couple of them were near that mark.

    My 2015 True Historic 1957 "Black Beauty." Retailed for $8,000... I paid just under $5k

    Also happens to be the most monstrous guitar I've ever played. Not in a bad way, but she is a beast. You have to pretty much back off everything, or she'll blow your ear drums. I haven't ever played a bigger, louder guitar, in my lifetime.

    If she had the same neck, as my '68 RI, she'd be #1... that's really the only reason I pick the Triburst, because of the neck... and she is setup exactly like I want my guitars. She also happens to be next expensive, but not really close to this.

    My humour is wasted here, italic emphasis implies another interpretation

    That's why I built the guitar room, so you have to go through the pet room.

    Where the lab/pitbull and bully boxer spend their days. :run:

    A joke isn't funny if you have to explain it.

    Not everyone gets my sense of humour but doesn't mean it's not funny and you did put italics on the "paid"

    My most expensive as far as list price is my 2017 Trad Pro IV (ie, listed at $2499)...but I only paid $1899 for it, making it technically 3rd on my list of ones I paid the most for (ie, I paid $1954 and $1999 respectively for my Honey Burst and Iced Tea 2016 Trads).

    Both of my 28 series Martins were within $50 of each other - $2300 and $2350.

    I got a slightly better deal on the pricier HD-28.

    The Custom. Still can't believe I got it for just a shade under 2k.
