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. :)

Highest known serial number.
There was a nice article about it in Vintage Guitar Magazine last year.

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.

So, his store name is SPC? Never heard of that store. :hmm

What does the collective wisdom think of the current pricing?

Owners: they're still under priced
Dealers: they're priced right and will continue to rise (but I can get you one with a better top)
Potential buyers: they're over priced
99% of population: who the f*ck would pay that much for a used guitar

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.
