Holy crap!

There's one gyu who clearly is affraid of losing it, and is intimidating the other bids. He rose the price like crazy on the last minutes!

My first bid was just under 5k. My second was 5k. That's as high as I was willing to go.

Who wants to come over and play it when it arrives? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I figured this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and my wife gave me her blessing. Plus, the money is going to a good cause and should be tax deductible, so I'm basically paying with pre-tax money. Was NOT pleased to see it jump up $2K in the last 30 seconds and the second guy was REALLY close to my max bid. Will probably sell my JEM DNA to cover the cost, but that never gets played anyway. Yes, it's a lot of money for what is basically a red Ghostrider, but this guitar is iconic to me. I've watched IR2 I don't know how many dozens of times. I've always wanted to own one of Paul's guitars and I doubt he'll ever sell his original 300 or his 800. FWIW, I looked at the bids and the second guy bid multiple times all the way up. It looks like he's a sports memorabilia dealer, so that makes me wonder whether he was bidding to flip the guitar. At least it stays in the Racer X family!

I think I'm probably going to take the stickers off the front and then put in white Dimzarios to restore the appearance to IR2 specs. Will probably leave the GOMY stickers on the back. Before you ask, yes there will be lots of pics.

Jason :D

Congrats! Great to see that it stayed in the board family!
Can't wait to see lots of pics!

It looks like the last bid was 30 seconds before the end. I would have put money on a snipe within the last 5 seconds! :P

Congrats from me, too.
That is exactly the price I would have also paid. When international shipping would be given.
The price is not to high. You own now one of Paul's guitars, thought that would go away for much more.
Can't wait to see some pictures and videos.

Stays in the family, I'm really happy that you won it, man. This is a legend of a guitar.

Could you just take the covers off the pickups?

Depends what's under there, but I don't think those are just covers put on over the original pickups. The pole pieces are different. I think the originals were PAF Pros. My guess is the current pickups are probably covered PAF Classics.

Yes, it is. But then again, so is $5K+ for a production model Gibson 59 VOS. I'd rather have this. :wink:
