  1. That’s a very valid concern about the entire classic car (and guitar) market.
  2. Yes and no. If this were a regular 1968 Mustang in the condition it’s in, then it would be worth more restored. But this car’s value is derived from its historical significance; replace too much of the car, and you risk losing the original essence (although, granted, it has 50 years of “patina” since the movie...). It would be like replacing the chassis and doing a “resto-mod” on one of the original Batmobiles; if that’s what you’re after, just go buy a new replica. That said, the other Bullitt that’s out there? If it’s been in a junkyard all these years, probably best to go ahead and restore it. Just my .02. It will be interesting to see what the new owner decides.
  3. Green US Cruisebass at Greensboro Guitar Center for $499. Someone needs to grab it before I decide I need another one. No sure why the link is directing to another Cruise, but if you go to the GC site and search, it should come up.
  4. “He’s worth $60 million dollars more than me, but he can’t sing anymore! What a loser!”
  5. Since I bought my Standard in 2018, my GAS has subsided to near nothing. Just need to play more and start to think about thinning the herd of stuff I don’t play. Now, if a nice Special FM pops up, I may have to reconsider...
  6. Yeah, I think restoring it would probably hurt its value. I can tell you, it still sounds healthy, though :)
  7. This one was sold to a studio employee, who sold it to a detective in New Jersey, who sold it to the current owner’s father. The current owner’s mother was a school teacher, who used it as a daily driver for years....
  8. Got to spend a little time with the Bullitt Mustang and it’s owner back in October. Really excited to see how much it’s going to go for this week.
  9. Billie Eilish: “Jerry Lee Lewis? Is he the guy that did the telethons?” But seriously, well said.
  10. Cool bass. The seller apparently owns trademarks to the term “bass-mint”. Not sure if that adds value, but, there you go. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F312855783816 .
  11. I think every bass and guitar I’ve bought off of Reverb (3 total) was based on an offer. Can’t vouch for how long they were listed, though.
  12. Are you saying it’s some kind of secret that you can use the “Make an Offer” button? My guess is a lot of the stuff on Reverb sells at less than asking price.
  13. Thanks for the heads-up, I didn’t know you could do that on Reverb now. Still not a lot of Standards moving recently... As an aside, mine is shown in that group, although I paid significantly less than the asking price :)
