Very nice Banker! I am imagining how sweetly she must sing... The patina of a dignified Lady that has strolled around the block more than once.

Given you asked........it's the last known '58, ex-Mick Ralphs (Bad Co.), appears to have been on long-term loan to George Harrison. Very good playing guitar.

Oh, and "guitar tax" is a long and ridiculously precise list of "lady goods", the acquisition of which is necessary to placate 'er indoors.

Hmm.. thought as much. Similar extractions made in our household although recently only modern CS LP60 RI and 'new' Hiwatt so if it is at a similar rate 'pro rata' for an original '58 with provenance I shudder to think!

Stunning! And in almost mint conditions with just "that" tad of good old patina!

I helped do one of those once, my job was to suture the 'deboned' todger up inside the plevis whilst the plastic surgeon fabricated some labia, still makes my eyes water :? )

:shock: Ahhh....e' cosi bella! What exquisite curls she has.
That Geo.Gordon line sums it perfectly Mr. Stinkfoot.
I knew a fellow,no longer among us, whose wife bought him a '59 burst and a new BF Twin in the sixties. A mint specimen of the Standard, like Banker's, and of a similar darker cherry hue. I lusted after the vixen for years as a young man,especially whenever his son would allow my buddy and I to ogle her in the case. (never was allowed to hold her,not even for a minute).
The serial # was 9 1154. I was born in 11/54.
When the dad passed away in the mid-nineties the phone started ringing. I heard it went to Rumble Seat Music in NY state for a price in the high five-figures.
I've only been fortunate enough to spend about a half hour playing a real '58 that was in a good friend's possession for a month or two. He subsequently sold it to Slash, through his manager, for an amount too low to mention in polite company. Of course my friend had gotten it for half of that from a guy who'd played blues on it for many years doing the bar circuit. It was quite light, as Pauls usually go-I wonder Banker, what is the weight on that beauty like?
