    They can't handle the load. Auction has been postponed for now. Awaiting an update.

    Can't believe they listed his original Black strat for $100k-150k. Anyone who knows anything about guitar knows it will easily go for at least triple that, if not millions. It has to be in the top 10 most desirable rock guitars ever.

    Was there last Friday. It was much less chaotic. Got several shots of the Black Strat.

    My estimate many months ago on here was $3-4M.

    I can’t get on. Oh well, just shows how bogus the estimates were.

    I would have said this is way off, but it looks like your right on the money

    TDSOTM is considered one of the greatest albums ever made.

    What should the Black Strat guitar that created it, realistically go for?

    Millions.

    Over a million when the buyer's premium is included...
