That's ironic. My father in law recently aquired a rare guitar for cheap. He didn't even know what it was until he looked it up. I think he payed 800 for it. worth several thousand.I just bought a Fender Twin Reverb on Ebay, built in '68.
Now I just gotta get the Gibson pre-1973 Les Paul to go with it. Put is a few bids, either they are broken necks, too expensive, or ambiguous serial numbers untraceable to pre '73. Or I just miss the bid. Hmm. Yama gyro gots ta come first right now, only so many projects I can support at one time. Gettin old n slow I guess.
