So here we have a guitar that has been twice wounded, but keeps battling back. In its life, it suffered a headstock crack and separation at the heel. The repair jobs are obvious and the scars are a constant memory of its history. Offered by Solidbody Guitars of Minnesota, and played by Kenny Rardin. Kenny seems to be apologetic and nervous in the video. Not very often that a guitar has so much life that it keeps coming back. She proclaims, "I don't want to die ... or remain inside the case/coffin." How much is she worth, and do you think it will sell?

I like these kinds of guitars. I think this one's overpriced but it's pretty cool. I have no idea what it's worth but I bet a reasonable offer would take it (Kevin James please chime in any time). One of my all time favorite guitars has had it's neck cracked and then broken and it still sounds and plays incredible.
