These are the droids....guitars you're looking for...

They made a Boba Fett and Yoda as well but the price is a bit too steep on them, maybe if I find a desperate seller

Awesome man!!! I don't know where you are in IL, but when I figure ti out- I'M COMING OVER!!!!!!

FWIW... I've always loved the Star Wars series.......... Fernandez did a killer job on them. There was a time that you could find them for like $300. I guess that's not the case anymore...........

Re: These are the droids....guitars you're looking for...

Man RGT don't I regret not getting them for 300!!! I've been able to get them into the 650 range now, but I offered $800 on Boba and was told I was insulting lol. The seller was asking 1900, which I felt was MORE insulting. It sold, just not through the bay so not sure what it ended up getting at their store.

The storm and vader guitars are more common Stealth, I think there are like 200 of each of those out there, so maybe no common. The yoda and boba are allegedly limited to 65 pieces. Lucas also supposedly kept 5 of each right off the bat.

Re: These are the droids....guitars you're looking for...

I was able to get Stormtrooper shipped to me for $700 and the Vader shipped for like $680.

Actually the wife got the vader for our anniversary, so she's the better negotiator apparently!

Knowing what I know now, I'd do it anyway.

The theater of pain guitar is a Kramer Reissue Baretta - it started off white, I tracked it on e bay for about 550? and then sent it to be air brushed. It was done by a well know guy.

The only challenge was finding a good high quality pic of Mick's, and then I read Mick had a couple different versions out there. He pretty much nailed it, although I did find one picture of Mick's later down the line where the masks are moved over to the right a little bit more. I'm really happy with it so I can't complain. I think it was about 5-600 to paint?
