$1 MILLION Destroyer !!!!!!!!

Well if this doesnt take the cake on "enthusiastic" descriptions....



I'm going to copy the ad in case it gets removed... Check this out..

I'd love to talk more about it but I'm speechless !!!


http://newyork.craigslist.org/jsy/msg/521901098.html




From our research there has never been a guitar to sell for 1 Million Dollars or more. But of course a million isn't what it used to be. I would like to invite you to send your emails debating whether or not this guitar will ever sell for 1 Million Dollars.
Emails will be saved and stored for safety/ security reasons. Here is some information on guitar: this guitar is being offered for 1 Million Dollars. It is a Japanese Ibanez custom made guitar. Although you can find similar guitars there are some major differeces between a custom and a runoff. This guitar has a semi-transparent paint job that allows you to see the Japanese Ash that it was made from. It is most likely the heaviest guitar you would ever feel because of the dense wood. The 3rd pickup has been reviewed extensively and no one has been able to determine if there has been a duplicate type ever produced.
The fourth edition of guitar blue book states that during the time this guitar was made, Ibanez was sticking it to Gibson----------this is that guitar.
This model of guitar was used by Def Lepard, Phil Collens and Iron Maiden. After careful analyzation, this guitar has more unique and custom features than the model these bands used during their career. Check out the Floyd Rose locking Tremelo. The owner of this guitra never ever intended on selling this guitar. As time went on and the unique features captured a World Wide Discussion, the owner agreed to sell through an exclusive agent(Bryan Wilson) for exactly 1 Million Dollars.
The serial number may say it all. Amazingly, the last 2 digits are famous for being 69. Also, three digits in the serial # mimick the first 3 digits in Ibanez's 1800 669 phone number. Coincidence?
The owner believes that this very guitar has inspired a televised cartoon and a non-published song.
We have documented responses from Tokyo, California and Las Vegas to name a few.
the owner and agent has been negotiating professional posters of the MILLION DOLLAR GUITAR?
Can a unique guitar create enough of a response to justify 1 Million dollars? Will Ibanez want the guitar? Will Ibanez change it's phone number?

We will try to respond to every email and thank you for your response.




it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests



Now I know a million bucks does not buy what it used to but I expect a little more for my money than this !!

Re: $1 MILLION Destroyer !!!!!!!!

So what's so special about this guitar again? the serial is similar to a phone#? huh?

I'm always amazed at what some people will try to get away with.

Re: $1 MILLION Destroyer !!!!!!!!

Ok. So If I put the number 69 on my guitar and just add a few minor touches it's 1 million dollars.

Lately I think these kind of things are becoming ridiculous. It's like what Kirk Hammett said in my magazine. "People anymore are spending thousands of dollars to mount guitars on walls. Guitars were meant to be played. And guitars are something that is becoming only available to the Super Rich and CEO's." I think that quote is becoming more and more true every day. It seems like you can't get a good guitar anymore for anything cheap. Also guitars are becoming something more of a piece of business rather than something to play. This just solidifies this claim.

considering of course that it is a run of the mill destroyer in less than great condition wiht a changed pickup, added Kahler bridge I'd put it around $350-450 tops if it was auctioned. But heck... I would pay $40 for that Kahler string lock with the handy flip up levers



This might be the most absurd listing I have ever seen!

I wouldnt agree with that man. Companies like Agile, Michael Kelly, etc are building fantastic quality instruments, most of which are in the 200-400 dollar mark, and sacrifice neither quality nor aesthetics.

Re: $1 MILLION Destroyer !!!!!!!!

Even if it was, those seem to be worth about a grand or maybe 1500 tops...

There is a wood called Japanese Ash or Tamo..... The good slabs or veneers are highly figured. Something this isn't!









But a cool mil for this? Clearly the effects of long term drug usage!

Re: $1 MILLION Destroyer !!!!!!!!

Maybe in 1000 years with inflation this may be a good price.
