    It's real. It may be pretty cool but it is no ODS. Not like I would pass it up at a flea market though. :O)

    I remember I had a chance to buy one of Christopher Cross` old Dumbles in the early 80's for like $1200. I was in college and had no money so I passed-if I had known then( as they say hindsight is 20/20, foresight thats another story)

    I once had a chance to buy 3 Doug Irwin guitars for about $550-$750 each.
    This was long before the craze. Sure wish I had done it differently. Still looking for my flea market Dumble and '59 burst...

    There is a monster player here in Cleveland that bought one of the Dumbles from Christopher Cross's back in the 80's. I have only heard it once. He brought it out to one of the local blues jam nights (... very late in the evening, not many people still in the bar). It was a combo with the orange suede covering and was packed in a road case that had "Christopher Cross" spray painted on it. The amp sounded AMAZING! He paid $1500 for it and had to borrow the money from his mom at the time to pay for it. Definetly a wise investment.

    Did David Lindley ever sell his?
    I remember an ad was put up awhile back.
