Oh I know!  that's pretty nice.  But $192,100 nice? hardly... IMO.

Anything that is made of wood and costs $192,000 should have at least 4 bedrooms.

Yeah, every time you played that guitar, you'd be reminded of some guy in Baker City sticking his wet armpit in that spot every day for 50 years.  No thanks.

And for those hopefull soles who are constantly trying to convince us that THEIR indian rosewood guitar is really brazilian, and hence worth lots of extra money..

You'll note that one can tell the difference even with a very premium piece of quartersawn wood.  ^_^

I would bid $192,000 on it but I'm afraid MY bid would be the one to reach the reserve price. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I don't think $192K is the reserve; it looks they're not listing the reserve to discourage...well, something or other.  Beats me.

Just ridiculous.  I dont get the point.  BTW it's alreay pass the 192K haha.  I guess you gotta have what you gotta have.  I think I'd save the money and buy myself 20 custom made guitars, each one will sound just as good if not better.  And each will be more unique than the next one.  But then again, what the heck would I do with 20 guitars.  :rolleyes:

I liked the fact that they're anticipating special fly-ins from bidders tomorrow to have a look.

I guess if I were going to spend over $200K for a guitar, a couple more thou for a last minute flight wouldn't be that big a deal.

Just think, for 192K you could buy 19 new Olsons, Ryans, Petros, etc and still have enough left over for an 05 or 09 series Larrivee. Or I could forego the guitars and simply not work for 5 years!

The point you guys are missing is that in ten years this guitar will be worth far more than any new owner pays today.  Ten years ago you could have bought this guitar for less than $100K but people scoffed at the price then just like they are now.

just about two years ago Elderly's sold an OM-45 (similar year and condition) for 145,000 after being on the site for a while, so Ratishna is likely right.......one thing that gets me though, if you have plans of getting in excess of 200k for an instrument, couldn't you at least polish it up a little.....the pics of the endpin area don't look like it's very tidy
