I am surprised it's not already in the hands of a collecter.

I think some guy lost it on the dice table and the casino kept it secret until now. For insurance puposes I would insure it for 100grand. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas... cool

I don't think $100 grand comes close to what it would bring on the open market. I've heard of less famous guitars going for a lot more.

I saw something on "60 minutes" last year - one of the former partners of Bill Gates - Microsoft or perhaps it was former partner to Steve Jobs - Apple - bought that axe for $350,000 or maybe $250K, don't really remember.

Some people have too much money - wonder if it made him a better player....not.

Whoever has it now, it looks as if he was playing it. The photo looks like it's strung for a righty.
