Hellfire Jim you paid over 7.5 for a 2nd hand CS reissue ? Easily done I guess if you're planning on a lifelong interaction.
I hope the seller at least bought you dinner first ( it's customary I believe in these situations ).

Yes, although it was brought through a store rather than a private seller/TradeMe

Don’t forget the all-important $130 Faber USA ABR-1 !!

Yep. It's nuts. A Traditional was commonly $2k-$2.2. My R8 was mint and sub $4k. My R9 was stunning and sub $5k. I don't think any of my CS Gibsons ever topped $5k. R6 $3.3. R7 around $4k - maybe a bit more.

I'm guessing current used prices are driven up by new prices.

I was recently offered a gloss dirty lemon Wildwood R8. A good chunk less than it cost new but too high for me.
Things have moved for sure. Yep, sub 5k R9’s were possible. Crap exchange rates make our own market a little stiffer.

Not quite.

1969 Gibson Goldtop LP Deluxe with P90’s (not the one on TM)
Polar Bear’s one?
Not mine, as it’s a standard, as opposed to a deluxe.
