I don't think so, eh?
So I thought it would be interesting to see what other outrageously expensive guitars are being offered on eBay.
So I present Guitar Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
I can't imagine gigging with a $42,000 guitar. I'd spend the whole night worrying about it being stolen.
|1960 Gibson Cherryburst|
Lo and behold, the most desirable of all Gibson electrics; the holy grail if you will; a 1960 Gibson 'burst. Not only in cherry-burst, but in cherry condition, as we used to say in the 1960's. Yep, I'm vintage too.
The guitar comes with a vintage case in great condition, hang tags, ancient strings, warranty and original polishing cloth. Get out your Visa card. The seller would like $325,000 for this puppy.
|Barney Kessel Collection|
For you, such a bargain at $135,000. But I bet they would take $134,995.
|1957 Gold Top|
Norm's Rare Guitars in Los Angeles is a most reputable shop. They know guitars at Norms. However I do not think I can scrape together $98,000 U.S. to get this most excellent 1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop with original case and hang tags. There is some slight wear on the back, but sorry Norm, I'm going to have to take a pass.
|Pearly Gates Replica|
This guitar is a puzzler. It's a Billy Gibbons Pearly Gates replica. For $40,000 U.S. For real! It comes with a genuine signed picture of the Reverend and it's relic'd by the Gibson Custom Shop.
But...it is a replica! For 40 grand! No thanks.
|eBay Harrison Tele|
I am aware that Fender gave George a Rosewood Telecaster in 1968. This guitar was ordered by then Fender head designer Roger Rossmeisl and custom made by noted luthier Philip Kubicki. Harrison gave it away to Delaney Bramlett. The seller wants GBP18,999, which equates to about $30,000 U.S.
|Harrison's actual Tele|
So much for Guitar Life Styles of the Rich and Famous, and dreams of guitars I cannot afford. But I've got my eye set on a sweet Hello Kitty 00-21. $39.95 with free shipping.
