Never thought I'd see the day

There's a real JS2 on a certain auction site. I heard about this guitar when it was still in Europe about a year ago. Craziness. Wish I was rich

By which I mean wealthy. Although being Rich Harris would be nice too. If you just consider the collection and the knowledge, not the billions of hours of work he does.

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

very cool! price isnt though. ah well, i dont really like JS's anyway.

by the way, you know were allowed to say eBay right?

side note: you know what would have made these even cooler? if they did cosmo chrome for the whole guitar/hardware instead of regular chrome

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

that price is just right for a JS2. I thought we couldn't say Ebay or is that just the way it used to be. If you know the history of the JS line you should expect a JS2 to be in the range.

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

Anybody know where this guitar went?? Rich hasn't updated his gallery yet so can't see it there...

Wonder if Joe would ever splash the cash to get one of these back now he's got a regular gig with Chickenfoot!

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

Rich didn't get it. I think Joe is over the chrome thing. I hope he gets past the 2400 phase and at least get back into 1200 for a good part of his sets again. He had the seven string phase and that passed.

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

Lol...

Guess you are right about Joe, that pale blue single coil JS might be on the cards if memory serves me correctly (probably won't now). Guess some weathy fan/collector got lucky then

Re: Never thought I'd see the day

I could have bought it from the German, but it has issues. It's far worse than mine so it's just a chunk of money I don't need to spend on another fragile guitar I'm frankly afraid to own. I asked a couple clients that would be buyers and they weren't interested either. The chunk of missing logo and 2 pin holes drilled into the back of it are just killers, much less what else could be wrong that you can't see. If somebody did that to a JS10th it's a $1700 guitar. Has just as much effect on a 2 no matter how rare it is.
