$1,000,000 in Bitcoin? Why would you spend 1,300,000 Bitcoin on a guitar? I could think of many better things to spend $690,000 bitcoin on. :lol:

I got a reply today. here's what he said

I should be able to obtain the documents to prove of its authenticity, for the list of previous owners I’m not to sure how I’d be able to get you that due to the fact that I’ve had this guitar since I was 18 which I’m currently 25 so finding the previous owners is a no go

Not sure why it's problem getting a list of previous owners...but anyway his use of language is much better than as shown in the listing :mrgreen:

Exactly. A list of previous owners isn't as necessary as proof of authenticity from the manufacturer, but still helpful. With the serial number, Washburn would likely be able to see exactly where, and to whom the guitar was sent, especially if it was so rare, and they value it so highly (why don't they just buy it back as a museum piece?).

It was briefly no longer a million, but just under a hundred thousand....such a bargain!

The seller has also updated their description, removing the statement that Washburn told them how to price it. I wonder why. Now they state the price to "avoid those whom are not serious about purchasing the guitar...."

But, the price is now back up. My prediction: it will never sell for that price unless some rich, coked-out-of-their-mind buyer picks this up.

29 separate offers, apparently. The funny part is that if you add the dollar amount of all the offers together, you come up with a grand total offered of $1.28 :lol:
