Mike Campbell said something about his 'burst(beautiful, but a plain top) being $280K. That flamey beast is a bargain....

That is 9-1998 i almost got it when Gil S. had it, great bigsby burst.That Is or was Kirk Hammett's burst but since he bought The Peter Green-Gary Moore Burst he may want to get rid of this one.Plus with the asking price of that burst -GREENY even he may need an extra 1/4 MIL which rumor has it would not even be a down payment --Hush Hush On THE QT>did not hear it from me.I do not know the price but asking had been over a MIL, i believe at one time.

You would think that for $250k, he would include free shipping!

MB - Gil had a '59 bigsby (i think it had a broken/repaired headstock) several years ago - like '08 or '09. I was just curious if you had played it. I think he sold it later that year or in '09 or '10. I don't think it's this one, but I thought I'd ask.

Funny story Gil brought the above mentioned '59 to a jam at my house. One of the owners of my company was playing it and said it was a great guitar....when I told him what it was and how much it was worth he went pale and almost dropped it. Comedy....
