    I have a buddy who has one of these in really good condition that he might be interested in selling.

    He's asking $2200 for his.

    He says that these guitars are VERY rare and special, and command good money.

    I've played the guitar, and I do like the guitar, but are these guitars worth what most ask for them?

    I understand a guitar is only worth what someone would pay for THAT guitar, but what is the board consensus on these guitars?

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's a pic of my buddy's McSoapy

    IIRC there are 18 of them in total and they’re pretty sought after. $2200 doesn’t seem unreasonable for that one, it’s gorgeous.

    I'd agree with this. I think it's a fair price.

    I thought there were even less than that, like 13, IIRC?


    But yeah, they’re rare. I have a buddy who’s obsessed with these, and have seen a few more than usual pop up for sale lately (and not moving) at $2000.

    That’s not to say they’re over priced, or his price isn’t good.... there’s just a weird dip in the market for these at the moment.

    I'm looking for one of these, preferably a Mctrem standard, P90's in natural. I'm close, but no cigar, yet
