fasincating life of the fellow

Wow. I was wondering who this guy was, but I hadn't google him. Took his own life after it was revealed he was under investigation for fraud.

I wouldn't mind the BB King or SRV signed guitars


I thought the guitars where kind of odd. If you're going to be spendy about something wouldn't you get the B.B. King on at least an Epiphone Lucille? He hated anything with F holes. The Vaughan I could see there's not a lot of choice but the cheapest possible Fender for it is kind of blah. Or do autograph collectors not care?

wouldnt call him a real "snob" on this considering the other tacky stuff in his collection. but if you're going to spend someone else's money, sure why not?

True. I get the impression he didn't know or care. They were just something he could show off in his man cave. (He converted his massive garage into his man cave to show off his guitars and cars.) The Dylan is a Stratocaster knockoff. And the Stones is a Strat Squier - a beginner Strat.

King was a generous signer and there are always signed Lucille's on Reverb, always. Not my area of expertise, don't really know if music auto collectors give a crap but it's kind of like getting a Mantle autograph on a Dodgers item to me. So yeah tacky. 'Glitter Dick' I think is the term now days. Smile

Not at that bid price!!!

surprised someone even bid that much for what is a 70$ strat knock off.


FWIW, Squier is a Fender brand, it would probably say "Squire by Fender" on the headstock. They sell it as an alternative. So technically, not anknock off. They play decent enough and have good tone.

The Dylan isn't a Squier. It's a "California" -- a Stratocaster knockoff.

Some of the other guitars are Squiers (including a Springsteen Squier Telecaster), but not the Dylan.

yep

one of hte many labels of a few prominent knockoff chinese companies.

it's as good as an intro peavey (who probably sources their guitars from one of the various chinese manufacturers)
Nice guitars, but the watches and cars are pretty good, too.

There's a couple of remarkable cars there, but the 2 I would love to have in my garage are a pair of those Corvettes: the 1963 split-window coupe, and especially the 1967 big block convertible which is similar to one I have long coveted and almost bought (offered to me at a great price back in 1976, but an ex-wife would not let me do it, which is only one of many reasons why she's an ex-wife Smile).
Was this guy like the very poorest man's Bill Koch? His guitar collection is laughable. I have starving musician friends with nicer guitars.

My PRS McCarty II is a better guitar than what this guy showed off except those Taylor PS14s.

Except now you're playing the same guitar that Taylor Swift plays, sooooo... and yes, I know that fact lol.
