A guitar for those who feel you can never have too much inlay.

Very well done craftsmanship, but a LOT much for me. I definitely go for the more understated look. Besides, I buy guitars to play out at gigs. Heck, I'd even be afraid to play something that expensive in my living room.

Instruments are made to be played, not to sit in a humidified glass display case!!  :(

Very nice but I would agree, a bit over the top.

Holy Abalone Batman! That's pretty, but way over the top for me. I like the plain (no dot) fretboards of the older Larrivees!

I find it to be ugly. That is a piece of furniture. It is no longer an instrument. Sorry at 28k that guy can keep that guitar. I feel sorry for whoever buys it,, its going to be the worst purchase they ever make. PHHHEEEWWWW

Since we are in the "just short of $30,000." price range of guitars, take a look at this one --- doesn't have the "inlay on steroids" like the ebay one, but it is  one VERY beautiful guitar.   I wonder if sounds like a $30K choir?

It is pretty and all, but for these guitars I'd have a corinary with the first ding I put into it.

Buy it now...$28,007.00

I'd be willing to wager that they would take $28,000 even.

BTW, what's the paypal fee on 28 grand  :o
