I would listen to you ramble on anything related to Ibanez!
I'll be getting a new JEM in January. I want to get the BFP right now, but I'm making myself wait to see if they're going to release a cooler new JEM...
The picks we were discussing had nothing to do with guitars, although some of them would definitely qualify as art
The last really good one [price won't show unless you have account] this piece sat online for a month, advertised as what it is, for a ridiculous estimate, which I bought for $1800. Evidently nobody looked close enough to see the signature was not on the back as usual, but in the lower left field, with a close up. I emailed my dealer after i stopped jumping around and asked if he was sleeping, What?, sent link, What was that, some Hodado piece?!, Try looking at the close up of the lower left front. It's a 12" sculpted early period Yabu charger!!
He got real quiet, and then started with the self loathing. We flipped 2 months later at the Baltimore show for 25k.
I was on a great piece of Baikei last week, sat at the prebids of $2100, nobody else bidding. I could tell by watching the pace it was about to close, and I'll never bid till the end to keep the emotions out. Ran is up to just under 10k and let it go, I know the asshat I was bidding against and it was my pleasure to cost him $'s. It would sell near 20, but not flip, and you have big money in a piece you have to hold to bank on a slow mover.
Those kind of stories, but I have too many and when somebody notices, I've got issues right now. But as the oxy kicks in....
