Guitar Showcase (San Jose, CA) has a phenomenal '77 Guild F-50R on consignment from Steve Miller. Why Miller would EVER let this one go is beyond me!<br /> <br /> Fantastic SUSTAIN. Clear, ringing, beautiful tone/notes... just a WINNER! I've played Dave Van Ronk's famous F-50R and this one is even better sounding.<br /> <br /> The bad news is they want $2995 for it. It's worth every penny of that, but I can't swing it personally. I checked, and they won't take a penny less than the asking price.<br /> <br /> If you're looking for such an axe, this is the ONE!<br /> <br /> 6

I'll be checking this baby out. Price does seem high though. His opinion on the value of his autograph has always been higher than I thought was justified.

I didn't see an autograph on the guitar.<br /> <br /> FWIW, I offered them $2200 cash for it yesterday and they refused. GS said Miller's manager will not discount the prices, PERIOD. <br /> <br /> $2995 it is, or nothing.<br /> <br /> I should add that they told me Miller has over 600 guitars in his collection and GS has already sold 150 of them on consignment at their full asking prices.<br /> <br /> The only person's guitar that would mean anything to me monetarily speaking would be Buddy Holly's, and they're all spoken for. I wouldn't pay a penny extra for any other musician's guitar.<br /> <br /> 6

I'll sneak in there and sign it. That should drop the value enough to get you into this fine guitar =o)

Finally got by Guitar Showcase again and the guitar is long gone. Went for full asking price (I'm not surprised).<br /> <br /> Anyone in this Forum buy it?
