I am seeing prices of 45k 22k for R9's that granted may be limited editions or unplayed but still seem ridiculous to me. I payed no where near those prices for my 1952 Goldtop. My thought is for 45k you could buy a 53-55 probably unbroken and fairly clean for probably LESS! Why would one pay for a "reproduction" of a model for more than an original? I have and have had many reissues as some of you guys who know me know this. They are wonderful instruments that I gig and record with. But 45k!!!!??? I havent started drinking.....yet. And I havent smoked pot in 30 years. Is it just me?
