I was shocked when I saw the asking price for this.

It will be bid on until the price is laughable. "There's a sucker born every minute"

As I wrote to my wife, when I passed her the second link: "Some people will sell ANYTHING! But a vintage1965 AIR GUITAR?! Now that's nuts... I wouldn't part from my '73 AG for all the muffler bearings in Detroit! "

:D

Dang, I think I had two of those Schwinn S2 Krate disk-braked rear wheels back in the day, one of them was still on the bike when it got pitched. Dammit, I hate my brother. :mad:

Yeah, but does your '73 have a scratch like the '65?

I don't know, I could barely see the scratch on that one. It does have a crack in it from when I hit my brother with it once, but doesn't seem to affect the action or sound any. :p

I'm not too sure about the accessories though

Wow! That must've hurt! Imagine getting whacked with something as heavy as an air guitar! Good thing you didn't throw the amp at him, or try to strangle him with the cord.

No, not signed, and mine's cordless. That way, I don't have to jack in to jam, I just hit it. :p

Yeah, not so sure about the accessories, either... I can understand wanting to cover one's pertinent parts, but come on, a bikini top?! That's just a tad fruity for me. Need the AC/DC tank top with the beer stains on it.
