OMG that thing is beautiful. Everything I want in a git - small body, 12 fret slothead - probably Braz and some pretty nice eye candy.

 

A bazillion years ago (that is not an endangered hardwood) when I was in college we went down to the student union for a cup of coffee. One of my buddies said "there's some folk singer playing protest songs, wanna check it out?". There she was, sitting on a stool in a peasant dress, guitar case open at her feet with some coins in it. Special.

I think that's one of the best stories I've ever heard :cool:

It's pretty, but I doubt its sound will floor me.....BUT IT'S JOAN BAEZ SIGNATURE GUITAR! I HAVE TO HAVE IT!

 

:o

 

I can't picture myself ever really playing it....it'll just be a collector's item. But considering there are only 59 of them made, I don't picture myself ever getting a hold of one :cry:

Sell some of that killer underwear you own and get the guitar.

Well, just look at it like this...Joan was a bra burning activist. You will be gaining a guitar, and making a political statement that she would agree with at the same time.


:idea::love:

 

If I were to sell all of my underwear I could probably buy

Rada,


That's a lot of expensive underwear!!
:D

Yes, it's a crippling addiction....I pity my future sugar mama or sugar daddy :o

 

But back to the guitar....has NO ONE ever seen one? I mean, I never even knew she had a sig, I've never heard it mentioned

 

I would love to get my hands on this thing....something tells me, considering only 59 of them were made, that it's easily going to be in the five-figure range :cry:

Has anyone seen or played one?


This just might be the only Martin I'd willing to fork over the $$ for

My good buddy Anubis Jones recently bought one and let me play on it (I was installing a UST in it for her)...mighty sweet!

 

Her "significant other" about had a heart-attack when she found out that Anubis sold her (Anubis') '65 Mustang (that "Noobie" had spent the last 4 years restoring) to be able to afford it...but, she's not a guitarist, either! ;)
