inspired by this ... Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman’s colossal Steel Wheels bass amp rig goes up for auction | Guitar World I thought I would ask about the valuation of famous players gear. I have no interest whats-so-ever in this kind of stuff, but it's interesting (and kind of entertaining) that (in the Bill Wyman example above) the auction house has appraised what amounts to $2-3k, $4k at most, of gear at current used prices at $2m US (!). It's all for a good cause, so I suppose it hardly matters but still. I get that Bill is a famous guy .. even though he has not been part of the band that made him famous for close to 30 years (departed in 1993), so he's been gone almost as long as he was actually in the band ('62 - '93). But still, I get he's a bass icon and all that. Does anyone have any solid info on what other famous players gear has sold for, and who might possibly pay such an astounding premium just to have that stuff ?
