I have two -- The first was back in 1999 when I found a 1985 62' Re-issue at a garage sale. (So it's now a vintage instrument of a vintage instrument. : ) ) It was dirty so I got them down to 175 bucks. lol And back in 1990, I found a 1978 4001 maple blond Rick in a record store! MINT. Ricks had totally fallen out of favor by that time, so the value wasn't real high Got it for $225. The miss -- When I first started playing back in the 80's I had a chance to buy a 1964 Hofner for 50 bucks. I passed. What's your's?
