  2. Fascinating.

    But as for GAS, all those Gibson guitars, I'd be willing to bet he didn't buy them.

    $18000 for a violin shaped EB bass.... and I thought that was one of the least desirable of the 60s basses listed

    But it was property of Les Paul, I guess that's worth $12K alone

    Crazy prices, but all good as it want to charity.

    If you are super loaded and generally donate tons of $$$ to charity, it is cool to actually get something with a donation, I guess.
