Thanks for the heads up Mike!
I got the brochure in the mail late today, there's also the annual Dallas auction coming up this month if you go to the Heritage site.
Same here, Strayed...If only.

Gilmour, Nash... is it just my impression or is this becoming a trend?

Lots of stars have done it, sad to say... Record sales are drying out, concert tours are no longer packed to the rafters. They may still be famous musicians, household names, etc... but they too got bills they gotta pay.

Example: Styx was here in town a few years ago, and played the small outdoor pavilion --- 5000 capacity at max. When they were in their prime in the late 70's/early 80's, they ruled! They'd play 35,000 seat stadiums, co-headlining with another band, and make $$$$. Those days are all gone, and I'm pretty sure Tommy Shaw has hocked a few guitars over the years to make ends meet.

I’m thinking that they or the others in the loop may be keeping an eye out for some desirable items that are wanted as well as unloading their gear.

I know big time collector Randy Bachman would likely be watching these sales.

On the other hand, maybe not. There’s a chance he already has or had what he wants. :lol:

Good article, FSB!

Glad you enjoyed it, Mike. Randy and I have a few things in common. We both had cherished guitars on the floor (my first one was broken by my little brother’s foot), lived in the same neighbourhoods in the prairies and the coast, used Garnet speaker cabs, worked in the entertainment industry using the same studios, knew and heard legendary Lenny Breau with his great Gretsch, associated with the Guess Who, and we both play guitar. Too bad Randy’s talent didn’t rub off on me. :cry: :lol:

Lenny was in a different dimension.

Just a reminder that the Heritage Auctions is tomorrow @ 10AM CST for their semi-annual musical instrument show and Saturday 1PM CST for the Graham Nash stuff.

Fridays auction has some sure deals, FYI 65' BandMaster and Cab needs work/non original speakers & grill cloth under $300 bucks + SH

I'm outta spare change due to upcoming issues or I'd be bidding!

I checked out the Heritage Auctions. I agree there are some deals to be grabbed without robbing Fort Knox.

Heritage made mention of possible CITES restrictions when shipping or receiving goods. In this case guitars with rosewood and/or ivory are two well known examples to be wary of. Interpretation can play a part and, while some shipping across borders will make it, I read it is risky at best.

Factoid: Rick Kelly (Carmine Street Guitars), celebrated custom guitar maker, basically said rosewood and maple work well together; but, ebony and maple have different shrinkage rates, and an ebony fretboard could conflict with the maple neck if it is glued together.

I’m assuming Micarta and Black Richlite will react the same way as ebony over maple. I guess, if I have the acoustic long enough, I’ll find out with my ebony on maple neck. :roll:

Thought I'd check back after the auction closed this evening, much safer for me than entering and fat fingering a button.
FYI 65' BandMaster and Cab needs work/non original speakers & grill cloth sold for $462.50 + SH

The Duane & Dickey's SG in the Nash auction is currently bid $320k
The Woodstock Martin is at $75k
The other guitars are getting good to better than good bids in the mid $10 to 30k range.
