Oh fercryinoutloud. But if you really want to spend some heavy cash try to find a pre WW II Martin D-45 or D-28 acoustic guitar. Its all in what your priorities are.

Hello Stringbreaker & Spinz,

Nice guitars but I'm partial to the
Gibson L-5 or Super 400.

Cheers.

Great guitars for sure but I do mostly acoustic. I do have a late 50's Kay semi hollow body single cutaway thats in near pristine condition, alas its still a Kay but its pretty funky

Cool. While on the subject, I have a double cutaway ~1970 Ibanez 2370. Basically a copy of a Gibson 335, but IMO, a better guitar. The Super 70s pickups rule.

Sometimes I wonder if the drug cartels are using ebay to launder money...

Yeah, this is amazing. Yawn. Just incredible price for a saddle. Yawn. Never seen anything like this before. Yawn. We've never had this same exact discussion before. Yawn. 27 times. Yawn.

Check out the Kay. Single coil. This one is late 50's of early 60's. Really funky tone. Good county blues box.
