    Current bursts for sale...

    I thought it might be fun, and informational, to start a thread that could be potentially long lasting. Why don't we try to congregate all of the current bursts for sale into this one thread.

    Yesterday I posted that 9 0647 is currently for sale at Storybook guitars.





    What else is currently on the market? Asking prices would also be helpful if available. This kind of thread could help a potential buyer judge the current market conditions.

    If someone has the time to harvest some pictures and prices from there, that would certainly get this thread off to a bang! I'm actually having to do some work today!

    Re: Current bursts for sale...

    What does the collective wisdom think of the current pricing? Do 59s with at least some wood, really start at 300k and move upwards? Are they selling above the 300k mark?

    Re: Current bursts for sale...

    A solid '59 seems more inline starting at $225-$250K and go up from there. Just my opinion. There are a few priced reasonably and some way high. Of course, we really don't know all of the issues (if any).

    Certainly some outliers in that list, IMO.

    As a certain forum owner can attest, some of those priced north of 300k are selling. For what gavel price, I don't know. Some priced north of 300k have been for sale for a long time. (e.g., Ralphie) No idea why.

    They are hoping that since the (documented) First Burst went for $$$$$$, then the (possibly) Last Burst should also.

    And it appears to be a much nicer Burst than the "First Burst", which makes sense.
    A stunning two piece top vs. a boring three piece top to begin with.

    I got to see and hold this one at the Philly show this past fall...and I sat next to the owner at dinner that night. It’s a gorgeous guitar, in great shape, although I seem to recall that it had a heel crack.

    He has a GBase and Reverb shop. From Mission Viejo, CA. I believe some people here know who he is.

    First name might be Sean, but not sure.

    If i had that sort of money I’d pay those prices. If I had $3m I’d buy all of them. A single piece of modern art can sell for a lot more so I think these are great value (and more attractive as art pieces)

    Was at Lark St. yesterday, they’ve still got the ‘58. Buzzy said I could pass on that it’s still for sale, although he doesn’t seem especially eager to move it on.
