Wow!!! That's pretty awesome!!!! I've got a place near me that has vintage and boutique retro style stuff, but that is plain incredible!
What's amazing is just how small this place is.
Oddly, among the all those art galleries for a decade or decade in and a half many years ago, there was a similar boutique guitar store, but more acclimated with acoustics.
As a kid I would go in there and the owner would show me a Stromberg, D'Angleico New Yorker, pre-war Martin dreadnaught, or Lloyd Loar mandolin. I had no clue what these were other than being rare and expensive, but I didn't know how expensive.
How do you place a value on this current shop with a one of a kind left handed Korina Flying V from 1958 or Eric's actual Explorer? They may actually get the first custom colored Fender Stratocaster ever soon, even before the famous Fiesta Red strat that I thought was the first one. I think the people who come to one of the many galleries and buy a pricey Blue Dog or Kinckaid may not be so interested in the quality of the art per se or it's historical significance, but that they could safely invest in it and I think that's why this guitar place, and the former acoustic high end guitar place, settled in an art gallery town.
Just when I think I have seen it all, they have stuff that defies all logic. I also saw a chrome hardware Mary Kay Stratocaster instead of the regular gold hardware, and then right next to a gold metallic Stratocaster with the Mary Kay gold hardware, both guitars being original, atypical, and both being one of a kind! Totally insane and beautiful.
I mentioned to them of the absolute electric Holy Grail, aka the Gretsch White Penguin (not White Falcon) or the legendary, not yet proven late-50s Korina Gibson Thunderbolt, and I wouldn't be surprised if they produce stuff like that.
