    Guitars like that are just play toys of the ultra wealthy like their yachts, jets, exotic cars and the like to keep them occupied for a while.

    Obscene!!!

    These things don’t come up very often and it will go to the highest bidder who is unlikely to be a talented young musician.
    You may be affronted by that but it is the market and the world we live in. I will stick to mangling tunes on much, much less expensive gear:band: sounded sweet tho’

    If that was Jimi's, why is it strung right-handed?

    They said in the video that it was restrung right-handed so Paul could play it. Since they asked him if he'd like to come play it.

    Ah. Thanks. I missed that.

    But I'm also very surprised. Did it have strings that were last touched by Jimi? If so, I'm utterly shocked that they would do that.

    Even if the original strings were long gone, you’d think the nut would be set up for left handed strings, the saddles, intonation, etc. And the pickups might probably sound different strung right-handed compared to left. Seems like a lot of hassle just for a YouTube vid…
