$625 for a new MIJ Fender reissue Bass VI. 1993/4?
I think I would have broken down in tears if I had a "one that got away" moment like that with a Yairi.
So far 1450 That was as low as i could get the guy for my 74' telecaster. But it is my road dog baby!
It was pretty much my dream guitar at an unbelievable price. We had a daughter going through some medical issues and money was tight. My wife knew how much i wanted it, and said we could make it work. So, yea i was sick when i realized it wasn't going to happen. Someday though!
Working hard to remember, guitars and sales receipts long gone....To the best of my recollection, I paid$365 for my Ovation Balladeer with Ovation hard case around '74/5 or so. My first real guitar. Lots of yard work and babysitting went into that amount. I was a Sophomore or Junior in H.S. Sadly it was stolen my the summer of my Junior year of college.
Replaced with my first Alvarez 5064 with Alvarez hard case from a local music store in (college) town. $325. Very sadly lost to hard times and unemployment.
Of my current guitars, my Jay Turser JT134QMT at $289.95 with hard case. Second runner up would be my current Alvarez 5064 at $250 plus shipping from Ebay.
Next closest is my Gibson SG Special. Most of my guitars were under $100, most well under.
ETA: corrected Sophomore to Junior. Sometimes I don't know where my mind is at.
The OP did say electric, and no pics, it didn't happen. So correcting the lack of pics:
$379 for the CV 50's Tele.
I paid a thousand for a a Clapton Strat and I also paid a thousand for an 80 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. Returned the Clapton to GC and sold the Gibson for a good profit.
250 for the 1984 hb35, but it's well worth it. If i ever want to sell it, it will be for a good profit
Well, I cheat by rarely buying them for myself. Jan buys them for me -- but with my, uh, "guidance."
I expect the most expensive was the 2002 SG Supreme -- that at about (Remember, I had no part in this!) $1450.
It'd have to be followed by the D'Angelico -- that just two Christmases back for about $1250.
And then there'd be my American Standard Tele back in 2008. Price was, I believe, about $1200 or so.
All sweet guitars. Keepers every one.
The most expensive one that I actually 'slid the card' for myself was a Martin MMV back in 2012. That was about $1200.
11 years ago I think I paid $1250 for a American Deluxe Tele...sold it a few years later to my boss on credit at that, came real close to making him return it for non payment! He was an ass & I feel like an ass for selling it!
1100 for a brand new 2015 American Standard Strat about 3 years ago. Still my favorite guitar.
I have had a few that hit the 2K mark including some vintage early 70's
Strat's but my recently purchased 1971 Les Paul was $2200.
These are all Canadian prices so deduct a good 30% for all you USA folks.
Yeah, I learned that a long time ago. Don't sell to friends unless they pay immediately. I've had to haggle friends for months. One former friend's ******* mom still owes me from 1987.
Fred Sanford had an Aunt Esther as well !
...whoops, hadn't read the whole thread - someone got to this joke already!
I paid $600 for this used '89 Standard, I think around '91?
Never played it that much, I traded it for this a couple years ago
2006 Country Club
$351.12 for an "open box" deal on a far-east manufactured Steinberger (below) that's going to be great for travel, and is actually a nicer guitar than I expected. I paid $300 for a used '76 Strat in about 1978. I guess in today's dollars that would really be about $1,000 though.
I once spent about 1500 on a new Gibson SG. Big jump that. Otherwise never spent more than 800 on a guitar, and even that's rare.
I'm a big spender.
$209 + tax for an Epiphone SG Special.
Not that you can tell now.:
How was dealing with Mr Roman? I used to love spend hours poring over his vast web site. I read that the BBB gave his business an “F” rating though, and hearing you waited a whole year for shipping kinda confirms that...
In 1984 I paid $400 for a 1965 Gibson ES-330, case, case candy and all. Then in 1986 I bought an August 1964 Rickenbacker 360-12 with hardshell case for $400. That was a lot back then.
