    Brian Setzer's Gretsch - Smoke may be worth more than you realize w the added value of a guy named tavo strumming it too. :) haaaa!

    Didn't see any Space Echoes on that sale list. Brian's got that market cornered. He probably isn't selling his really great gear.

    That red sparkle is tempting. I'm wondering what the average price of the guitars will be going for. $5K?

    The one Tavo played will easily bounce up to 100K at a minimum :D

    I'd take his Rick,cause nobody else wants it!;)

    Wish he'd kept it though,and used it more.

    He probably just wants to use a room in his house for something else.

    He said he wanted to make more room. These aren’t his favorite. He’s culling out the less desired. Its not due to finances in my opinion. He’s probably getting rid of stuff he has no intention of using again.

    He might need room to start building a new custom hot rod (the car not the guitar).
    Doesn't he have royalties still coming in every month?

    That triple jet looks good for sure. So many EVH Wolfgang models seems weird tho I understand what he was doing with them
