    I purchased this guitar new from Wildwood Guitars ( www.wildwoodguitars.com ) It is # 9103 on their site. Does anyone know how much it is worth? I may need to sell it in the future.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Jim, you know I get first dibs on that guitar. I'll give you what you paid.. Now that's a deal!! ;)

    I've played Jim's Gus. It's a great guitar.

    That is a deal! Gustavsson's are taking almost a year to get. They seem to be running about $7000 by the time you pay the entry fees and take the exchange rate into account. This is a nice one too! (He says as he looks around the room to see what is left that he can live without!)

    Wow!

    Um Jim, before you throw it out there on the open market remember your Gear Page buddies.

    I don't think you'll have any problem if you need to move it down the road.

    As a sleazeball and a troller, I'm in for $5000. I'll Paypal you tomorrow if you want to move it along.

    However, as a GP brother, I'd tell you to hold out for more.

    Hmm, what is it that is so fantastic about these guitars? someone please enlighten me. :confused:

    The woods? the craftsmanship? What sets these apart from other builders that are in the same tonal recipe/price/desirability league? (Keebler and MAX are some that come to mind)

    Aesthetically, i don't dig the shape, too tele-ish for my taste, but the woods and finishes are very beautiful.

    I had hopes of getting my hands on one of these gorgeous instruments, but 7g's is too rich for my blood.

    Good on ya if you got in early. If they sound half as good as they look, you've got a winner :)

    I wanted all of you to know I sold the guitar to a fellow forum member who was first in line after my buddy here in Austin declined. I will leave it up to the new owner to provide details. Thanks for all the advise and to everyone who e-mailed me with offers. I really appreciate the help.

    In the future, please try to sell your gear in the correct Emporium. Thank you...

    Sorry about that. I originally was inquiring as to it's value and in the process received several offers. I should have then transferred over to the sell emporium. It will not happen again and thanks for the understanding.

    Matte, probably an unfair question, but how does the Baker compare to the JG in regards to tone? They look right similar, and I know that Baker builds a mean guitar...so what say you?
