    The tipoff is that Nate says "Consigned at $7500." meaning he doesn't think it's worth that. Cool looker, but might as well be a Modern Annie under all the paint. Plus the parts aren't original. Scotty Moore's signature is nice but unnecessary.

    Yikes. It might have been worth $7500. Personally, the paint job would take $7000 off the value to me.

    I'm with Henry on that.

    I do get it in that it's really more of a "work of art" that you hang on the wall. But then I ask, why take a perfectly good Anniversary and make it into something you hang on the wall? Now if it were a play-worn, original 1958 with Scotty's blood and sweat staining every show-thru, then I might think it was worth $7500.

    One time a guy came up to me after a gig and said "I think you need this" and gave me an emblem off of an old Rocket 88. I carried that as a good luck charm in my back pocket for years until one day it disappeared. I wish I still had it.

    This guitar looks cool -for my very personal taste-. I woul love to play it for sure.
    The price is laughable, though.

    Like buying a hotted up Car. Don't pay for someone else's version of taste.

    I don't know. Maybe that's the idea, but it looks more like competent graphics than art. If I saw that on a canvas, I sure wouldn't be thinking "masterpiece." Putting it on a guitar doesn't make it any better, IMO.
