Thread Name: 60/70s guitars
Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
That's a fantastic response Banksie! I never thought I'd see a discussion either. Your post sheds a lot of light on the subject and makes me wonder if my guitar is worth more than I paid for it.
Perhaps having pound signs springing up in my eyes to the sound of 'Kerching!" is the wrong reaction though. The Dylan connection, if true, holds a lot more value to me. Two hundred quid would be nice but I'm not desperate at the moment and I'd like to hang on to a bit of history. Even if it's not true, it's nice to think that the instrument has pedigree and isn't just a piece of tat from a dodgy market stall.
I have a thread running in the Vintaxe forum. It pretty much repeats what I've said here but there are some photos of my Hawk there. I quoted your post there Banksie, I hope that's not too presumptuous.
