    Don't worry it's "guaranteed to sound like the best Stratocaster you be ever heard." Seems kind of subjective to me. Wonder what the return policy is.

    If you pay that price for a piece of funny wood, you probably have your lawyer ready to jump out at will !

    With a hit of green spray paint and a p90 in the bridge it might be okay.

    Ridiculously expensive but it is one of a kind. If you are a collector in this money game I guess it is worth it. Who cares about tone and sound qualitys on a guitar like that? Very cool guitar and a historic treasure.

    So dear the owner would not dare applying a fret levelling or do anything at all to make it justice, and make sure it is a player.
    What a waste! What a madness!
    When one contemplates how many lives could be saved with that kind of dosh...
    It may as well be left to dry out in a glass cage in some museum that explores the intricacies of our species's messed-up brains.
    I'd want it burnt!

    I don’t want it burnt but $185,000? I don’t get it. Guitars are meant to be played not collected for the sake of collection alone.

    I'm just not feeling it, am I missing something? I get the rarity thing but it's just doesn't have the "it" factor for me, special wood or not.

    Remember, this is not a reissue or replica, it's the real deal. So $185,000 totally makes sense. If paying cash, get a free pack of strings.
