'63 Explorer for over $200,000 at elderly

Recommended Posts

A type of wood. I think it's from Africa but don't quote me.

Korina was a wood they wanted to use in place of what we typically call mahogany.  It is from Africa.  It is not special, no super duper tone, no resonance, no tap tuning magic.  Just wood that they could get tonnes of cheaper than mahogany.  But it didn't work, for whatever reasons.

Yes it does seem like a highly optimistic price, even if it is a rare/legendary guitar produced in small numbers - perhaps there is something in the provenance.

Elderly know what they are talking about so theoretically it just might be worth about that, but I think the market for this in 2020 must be very small...at half or less of the asking price.

If you pick up shipping and do PayPal Friends And Family I'll let my 2007 GOTW Explorer go for $50K.

It has new strings on it and comes with the original case.

P.S.

I'm keeping the truss rod adjusting tool.

I still have a Gibson  truss tool and since you said you wanted to keep yours, I  thought 49k sounded fair.

Keep the case AND the truss rod tool?

Sell the case to RCT, I know he's got a case fetish and this one is a beauty.

Let me sleep on it.

I won't go a dime over $49,900 for that case.

Its like going to an amusement park. You must be this tall to play an explorer. You can't have heart issues or be pregnant either.

I just got an offer from a Nigerian Prince and a Western Union Money Order is being FedExed to me at this very minute.  Strange how I have to send him the overpayment of $20,000 but I guess they do things differently over there.  We eat tonight!!!

Seriously, I'd have to be really hard up to sell this guitar.  It took me 11 years to get another one and I've played it pretty much non stop since I got it.  I now remember why I missed it so much.  Picture a cross between a Lucille and a Firebird and that's this guitar.

It's basically uncharted territory. So that price might be just right or outrageously high. Who know! But a nice one indeed.
