There's a special super-limited edition guitar from one of my favorite artists out right now. It's 6 grand. I run a backline company & can justify a lot of ridiculous purchases for that, but this is something I will never ever see on a rider, not even once, even if I book THAT GUY, so it's purely an ego stroke. I barely even play anymore. I know it's stupid.

Manufacturer's tab is still open on my browser, though. Someone make me stop.

Did not buy yet. I am intentionally keeping details out of it because so few are being made even the possibility of one OGer grabbing one for whatever reason is potentially enough to block me out of the market. Paranoid I know but just not worth it to sustain a thread that face it just isn't special, lol.

High end guitars usually hold or increase in value. If it's not gimmicky and is a limited run, you should buy it :)

yup. 30th anniversary edition; has all his preferred features of all previous models combined into one instrument. Only 42 being made, of course.

Yes and unfortunately the 30th anniversary edition gaffer's tape is not included in the purchase price.
