    I thought I misread this. $12,000 for this nonsense is beyond crazy. Is it guitar center, esp, or Kirk Hammett that is crazy for asking this sum of money?

    I mean, at least it comes with a case, right?

    Received a gift from Sire* (see sig)
    "What the market will bear" - I doubt they'll sell a whole lot of them, but there are quite a few Metallica fanbois out there who might jump at it.

    And I don't think GC ever had a "mind" to lose...

    If it was his actual guitar, I could see it going for $12,000 to a big fan.

    It's worth that much to people who think it's worth that much. A bunch of people here have basses that cost tens of thousands of dollars. It's worth it to them whether or not I think they're nuts.
     
  6. Just because they can.
    I wonder what the 4004LK models were selling for new from RIC:

    I get it if it were HIS guitar, but its one of 25 of a guitar with his name on it. Weird.

    I'm clearly not their target demographic.

    I just bought one, and now I can play all Metallica songs.

    VERY badly, but still...

    Pics, please.
     
  12. I would have gladly paid that for one, but I'll bet they sold ultra-fast.
    There was one available for $10k & immediately after Lemmy's death the price went to $15k. I think it sold in early 2016.
    All the RICs in the nearest GC & Sam Ash disappeared soon after his death, & I was mad as a hatter at the time cruising GCs almost all the way into the next state.
