    Default Wow. What won't they try next?

    I'll admit. I am no expert. However I think there are too many zeros in the asking price.

    I’m guessing my ‘best offer’ wouldn’t be accepted.
    Play it like you mean it.

    Who cares what Martin thinks of it. I want to know what Givson has to say about it!
    One watch by night, one watch by day...if you get confused, just listen to the music play.

    Well, if you aren't interested in "rare", maybe this cheap knock-off would be the ticket:

    If neither I nor the Martin guy has ever seen anything like it, then it must be worth at least 10 grand.

    Good one! We heard that a lot at the vintage guitar shop. My boss would say, "well, where have you been? I go to vintage guitar shows and I see 'em all the time!"
