    As hard as it is to imagine, 1.2 million to some people is not THAT big a deal in the scope of their net worth.

    I see a lot of kids wearing Zeppelin shirts and such, and not ironically. I think the death of good music and appreciation for the trail blazers has been over stated.

    In no way does ABB=Zeppelin in the big picture.

    Without some sort of reinforcement in the mainstream, ABB is niche. Zeppelin will never not be mainstream.

    I would assume the percentage of disposable income the buyer spent is less than any of us buying a pack of strings. It's a piece of history (that I hope still gets played).

    In defense of the Dominos, they were all very, very high.

    Pretty sure Joe Bonnamassa didnt get it. ;)

    I saw this guitar at the Big House Museum in Macon GA. I just hope it went to a player......not a collector.

    You're probably right. When I was younger, the thought of owning one of my hero's guitars or even picking one up was totally amazing to me - thinking of the history that instrument contained, where it had been, etc. These days, my mind thinks "It's a piece of wood with frets, strings. The person who played it is gone - he/she could have played those tracks on any similar guitar with same results. It's the artist - not the equipment..." I like better how I used to think. I can still muster that amazement though. Meeting Billy Cox at a meet and greet during the Experience Hendrix tour I was like a stuttering fan meeting the guy who's Band of Gypsies basslines resonated in my head all of these years. My reaction surprised me and it was cool. I could probably sing the bassline of the whole damned album a Capella. Good to know I haven't totally lost that sense of excitement about my musical heroes. :)

    Oh, I’d
    Oh I’d play it in tune. But as mentioned, I wouldn’t be high as a kite!

    Pretty sure Joe is on the record as saying he's not someone to pay a premium for the name of the person who played it.

    The point I’m making is that guitar music isn’t dead, and ABB are trail blazers, they will always be relevant.

    For the record, if I was worth several million, that’s the one I’d buy.

    What's a good Stradivarius violin go for? At least they get played.

    There’s a jazz guitarist named David Gilmore. I wonder how much attention he’s gotten because of people who never read the liner notes on their Floyd records.
