The most expensive NEW guitar I remember seeing, was the Gibson Chet Atkins. It was listed in the Musician's Friend catalog for 30 or 40 THOUSAND dollars!!! :O

Some of the Page signiture models went for over $50K. That guy seems to be inseperable from pricey guitars.

No wonder Steve Balmer owns it... There was a guitar magazine about 2 months ago that had the top 10 most expensive guitars.

Out of interest, does anyone know how much is Evo worth?

Re: which is the most expensive guitar in the world?

Well, Rich sold PIA for $6250, but that only got used for 1 day- lets say Steve's been using EVO for 10 years (3653 days), so a simple equation brings us the sum of $22,800,000! eek!


I think the most expensive production guitar was the PRS Dragon 2002, which was £22,000 ($40000ish), and they made 100 of them.

Re: which is the most expensive guitar in the world?

how about the first electric guitar ever made?

wasn't that the fender broadcaster, or something like that?

it looked like a pile of fertilizer, but pricey nevertheless....

Nope PRS already topped that with the double dragon 50000 $.

If I'm not mistaken, this is actually a NoCaster (not a Stratocaster).
