    Or like the seller is high. :whistling:

    I like Smashing Pumpkins, but a million bucks for Billy's (or any) strat is beyond ridiculous.

    IMHO

    I find the ad strange too. I can see selling for the history, but the playability talk amuses me. I'm gonna pay a million....then play it!

    Very cool strat, but I'll wait for the Squier Re-Issue edition...

    From the add:

    "There were two primary guitars for Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie...."

    So Lassie was a type of mellon?

    Hey, $6000 for a strip of yellow tape with the settings, a bargain.

    Now you've gone and done it - MCATIS and SD are both available on Prime so I'm listening to them for the first time. Well, for the first time other than what I've heard on the radio. I expect disappointment, but we'll see.

    Yeah Noel Gallagher has/had some stuff for sale on there that will make you shake your head too.

    I doubt Billy or Noel either one really need the money anyway so it doesn't matter if the stuff sells or not.

    haha 6k for a strip of tape that mimics what every 14 year old guitar player was doing in their room. Gain, Full. Bass, FULL. Treble, FULL. Mids, Whats that? 0.

    Why does this sound like trash, why cant I cut through,. Must need a louder amp.

    Looks like Billy doesn't know his numbers. I learned them in Chicago schools
