    Or Jim Irsay..he just bought David Gilmore's black strat for 3.9 mil...that dude doesn't care about the price tag. He would think 1 mil is a bargain.

    Nice guitar. Personally I would pay a little more for a guitar used by an icon but not by much. It's a guitar albeit a really nice vintage one. Play it.

    I guess there's a slight chance I would pay a little more if the guitar was from someone I really liked - such as Knopfler, Frusciante, etc. but I don't have to worry about that because those would go for premium dollars - but it would have to be something I could play. For example, someone in my area is selling a 1991 Gibson SG Special signed by Joe Bonamassa (signed this year) for $1,250. I wouldn't buy it at $1,250, but if it was less money I still wouldn't buy it because the signature is on the upper left body where your arm comes down across the guitar. Wouldn't take long for that to wear off so I would feel I couldn't play it. Since I don't collect guitars this is useless to me.

    I said what I meant.
    A remember when person is someone who lives in and for the past.
    There aint no guitar worth that much to me or any normal person I would hope.

    A waste of time and money.

    I would never own it or even want to for that matter.

    Yeah, I'd pay $3-4 hundred bucks for that guitar.
    Now if I could buy Duane's talent, that is worth a million!

    Even here in the matrix, that's a stretch.

    Another doobious gold top with lack of provenance.

    Non sequitur. You stated that you are extremely dubious to its authenticity. Please provide information that warrants your position.

    is that a Gold Top Rickenbacker?

    See, now, look at that pickguard, pickup selector toggle ring. Now he just needs to take some sandpaper & a cheese grater to it... :)...

    It's too crisp for a 60 yo player.

    Between that and not being configured the same way as in the picture supplied...

    Other than the pickup covers, in what way is this guitar not comparatively configured to the picture?
