HA! $400 would be an absolutely fine price. And I'm sure that you are spot-on with your assesment of the IB64 but I must not have been clear in my first post. I was looking for info on the McCartney-signed, replicas that Epiphone produced around 2005. -- a collectible rather than an every day instrument. My understanding is that they originally sold for $25K. I might have the opportunity to buy one at or below that price. Thought you guys may have some insight as to whether they have held their value or not.
