Vintage Scalloped

What is or was the most expensive electric guitar in history?

Not counting single custom orders, would it be a limited Gibson production? A high-end current model? A collector's edition?

For awhile, Elderly Instruments had a 1957 prototype Gibson Flying V listed for sale at $77,000.00. I saw it in their display case several years ago. They also had a 1958, which they were asking about half that and if I recall, they may have two of them.

But those values pale in comparison to the sale of Eric Clapton's "Blackie", which brought a price of $950,000.00. For awhile, it was considered the most expensive guitar in the world.

However, the most expensive guitar to date was some autographed guitar sold at auction in Qatar for a million bucks. That guitar was put back up for sale and it brought 2.7 million.

According to www.most-expensive.net, the following signatures were on the above guitar:

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Brian May, Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend, Mark Knopfler, Ray Davis, Liam Gallagher, Ronnie Wood, Tony Iommi, Angus & Malcolm Young, Paul McCartney, Sting, Ritchie Blackmore, Def Leppard, and Bryan Adams, the coordinator of the project

So, that's ¨the answer to your question about the most expensive guitar.

But what about the most valuable? A guitarist in our studio has a limited edition Gibson Flying V with Hendrix's signature engraved in gold. There were 400 guitars made and this is number 1 of the series. There is a standing offer of ten grand if he ever decides to sell the guitar. But he never will.

Not at any price.

I bet there's plenty of guitarists who have a special ax that money can't buy. For me, it's my old workhorse - a vintage Gibson Flying V in the old cherry transluscent finish with a scalloped fingerboard and the softest action I've ever felt. I have a custom guitar I'd be hard pressed to sell, but the V is my treasure and has been to hell and back with me.
