^ Says the guy who plays an Epiphone

Although, I don't really like artificially aged guitars. People got them to look that way after decades of playing. If I'm going to spend thousands of dollars on an instrument, it's going to be in new condition. It's the same way that people buy pre-frayed, pre-torn, heavily faded jeans...doesn't make any sense to me.

its ironic though that if you damage an aged/relic'd guitar the price doesn't go up...

out of curiosity, lets say someone famous buys like a blackie replica. He then ages it even more and gives it a hell of a lot more dings, what would the replica of his guitar be called?

what ever the company wants to call it,
maybe the guitar players name that used it and replica
unless this so called blackie replica is already a famous persons custom then then name wonr hange if its the same guitar.

Very nice, very nice.

Although this isn't as impressive as the PGM collections on the Racer X forum (that is, if you like PGMs )

I have never been a fan of Fender guitar I used to collect Gibsons but usually never custom shop guitars. Once in a while even though I hated them I would buy a Strat or Tele if I got a deal just to turn over for a quick buck. I did keep a Jag or Mustang here and there for a while I kind of liked those. This guy has to be loaded! Those are not cheap and there are a lot of them.

I agree with the distressed guitar I pride myself on keeping my guitars in good to excellent shape. Why buy one that looks like crap just because it's a copy of someone elses guitar?

Thanks for posting even though I am not a fan I love seeing other people are just as bad as I am. LOL

I do love old Fender basses they are some of the best! I was the owner of a vintage Fender fretless Precision bass.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

As the not-so-proud owner of a 54 "Masterbuilt" Strat, I'd have to say -- what
a colossal waste of money. Between Fender & Gibson "Custom" shops I'm not
sure which one is the bigger rip. Probably Fender because when you get down
to it, a Strat is about as "no-frills" as it gets.

I would kill for any of those.

I'd also kill that Epiphone noob.

That thinline tele is so nice!
Don't care for the binding on the neck or the gold Fender logo (overkill) though...

Edit: +1 on the PGM collection



This one is even more outrageous (although it doesn't include Telesavalas):

I've been wondering what those rosewood Telecasters play and sound like ever since I first saw one.

They do look very nice though, that's for sure.
