  1. to Boccy they are...
    to me? no way
    The only way i'd spend a thousand dollars on pickups is if they came with a built in bass.

    something is worth what an individual would pay to retrieve a lost/stollen item or what someone else would be willing to pay for purchase.

    A pair of 50's Gibson PAF's (that looked on the hammered side) went for $750 U.S. about 6 months ago.

    In short, yes.

    Oops, I was thinking backwards for the exchange. Definetly sounds steep but a look at the bid list would reflect what's going on. Could be half dozen people willing to pay a chunk or just two guys with an agenda.

    Hmm, lot of people willing to drop some coin. Reserve not met. I smell fish. Maybe a guy wanting a current market value but not wanting to sell for whatever reason, to attract attention to sell out of auction, don't know, something's amiss. I'd like to know what the reserve was.
  3. I know what your saying, but, geez, its alot of money!

    The $750 was a lot of money for pups. That $2750 reserve not met is more than a tad on the funky side.

    Regardless, to my knowledge the earlier PAF Gibsons are the highest pup draw and have been for a long time. But even 70's Fenders are starting to draw what the 60's pups were not that long ago.
