    Just spotted this beautiful cardboard Gretsch on eBay. Bidding starts at only £200. For anyone about to scoff, may I point out that at 40cm wide this is almost life-size.

    Neck looks stable. Shut up and take my money.

    Actually, I'm no longer sure this cardboard Gretsch represents good value for money, when I can get a full size Elvis cardboard cut-out for £35.

    I've asked Mrs B what she thinks I should do, and she told me to 'get off the damn internet'.

    Clearly, you married a woman of judgement and discernment.

    Elvis has seen the Gretsch and is recoiling in horror.

    That Postage Delivery Charge puts me over budget. I'm out of the bidding war.

    What a disturbing range of tasteless crap the ebay seller has on offer....but that EC guitar cut out could just be thing for the real Gretsch fan who must have it all. Neck looks a bit iffy though Dave-B.

    That actual real guitar was featured in the book, The Electric Guitar ,with a foreword by Keith Richards ,edited by Paul Trynka in conjunction with The Design Museum.

    The right item for play-back-gigs. This should travel really easy, too.

    Elvis looks like someone slipped him some prune juice.
