    That looks like archaeological artifact, I wonder what its provenience was.

    A pet peeve of mine, showing the case in the ad, but not including it (in the fine print.) I've also had it happen in person, buying a guitar, negotiating a price, THEN the seller mentions "case not included" when it is clearly the original case and GOES with the guitar! What's up with that? I suspect there is something deep and psychologically wrong with a person who separates cases from instruments.....maybe they dream of having their own pawn shop! (full of caseless guitars and guitarless cases......)

    Anyone else think a 1960s Gibson for $7,900 is a tad high?

    That's getting close to "Duane Eddy mandolin money!"

    I totally lost it, Jeff. The way you summed up that rant struck my funny bone; hilarious use of the English language. Lucky I didn't have a mouth full of coffee or Mountain Dew when I read that one.

    His prices always seem high. Right now he's got a Kalamazoo flat top mando for $1,392 or thereabouts. Of course, I don't know if the customs fees and all the proper CITIES paperwork is included in that price.

    Lovely Jon Mann 5-string electric on CL ... but why is it $300 more than Jon charges for a new one?

    It 'could be a collector's piece' . . . and I 'could be the King of Spain' - but neither is likely.

    I suspect that I, and even my kids and/or grandchildren, will be long dead by the time that mandolin is worth almost $8,000.

    Reminds me of a story on UK national radio a few years ago when people were asked if they had met any interesting people.

    A journalist said he’d been talking to a man in an airport departure lounge and the man asked what he did for a living. “I’m a journalist” he said, “What do you do?”. “Oh, I’m the King of Spain” came the reply.
