They got checkerboard caskets?  Gotta link?  That would be soooo cool!  🤣

Well, it's been done before, but not to the lengths Rick would go.

That is actually pretty cool for that guy.  Does anybody remember the song "Willie the Wimp" by SRV, with the chorus "Southside Chicago will think of him often, Willie the wimp and his Cadillac coffin"?  That dude AND his Cadillac coffin were real!

One word... FTX.

 

Actually, no.  There really is a tangible asset here.  It does exist.  But it is like owning a piece of the statue in your local municipal park of some historical figure.  Nobody's going to find owning a share of it worth anything, if it's never really for sale.  P.T. Barnum would be proud. 

Hell, I'm willing to sell ownership in anything I own.  I'm just not willing to sell the actual asset.

so unless I'm wrong... what you get with these NFT things is a picture, on your computer. really? dang... I'm in the wrong business

That is also what confuses me. Is it some type of special 3d rendering, or a hi-res video? It sounds like they 3d scanned and pictured the hell out of it, so it can't just be a regular picture.  But the NFT is just a container for usually a web link, so guess it would direct you to download it and then it proves you "really own" it.

Ugh stupid.

I’ve held that guitar and examined it up close on several occasions.  I’ve also seen it being played nearly 100 times.

That NFT doesn’t look like the real deal, no matter what anybody says.  It looks like a crappy 3D rendering made by somebody who didn’t actually have the guitar in their presence.

Stupid idea, but just my personal opinion.

I’m sure there’s one, maybe two fools who will get suckered!

A little bit like the assholes selling Realestate lots on the moon... Remember that?

As the proud owner of shares of Green Bay Packers Stock I understand the appeal. 😆

NFTs can have actual value when they represent fractional ownership of tangible assets, but this ain't that. If Rick was selling ownership shares in the actual guitar, rather than an image, it would be more interesting.

Please correct me.  I am under the impression one is buying a certificate of authenticity rather than the object being certified.

Good question for the experts. I'm under the impression it's like beezerboy said above. Just a computer image. Do you get anything tangible?

I'm a huge Rick Nielsen fan but this is a hard pass.  Has he been hanging around Gene Simmons too long?  Replaces his drummer, has interest in a casino, branded a vodka, and now this.  Standing by for the checkerboard caskets...

And, if you can do all those ventures, then you have plenty of money.  Is he afraid his kids will have to do something in the however many decades they have left?  Don't any of these folks ever say, "No, this feels like fleecing our fans" ?

I can't believe that anyone would spend one flipping dollar on an NFT of any sort. It's just another scammy way to separate people from their money.

It reminds me somewhat of this scheme that Gibson came up with last year to sell shares of ownership in a few of their "special" artist prototype guitars.

I realize that it's different than an NFT in that there is all actual underlying asset. But it's still a collectible with no inherent economic value other than the willingness of some future sucker to pay more than you did.
