Yowzaa!!!  10K plus is as lot of extra $$ for the Cash connection.  Nice guitar, as Pike and I know well.[;)][:D][;)][:D]

I'll be surprised if the price gets to reserve. I'd imagine they're probably looking for something around 15K right now, and I sure don't see a lot of people looking to spend that kind of money right now.  That is one beautiful guitar though.

I believe there were two of these D-60's given to Cash.  I'm not 100% sure but I think one sold at Sotheby's for $60K.  Crazy $$, but if Blackie, Clapton's famous Parts-Caster, is worth close to a million, then sure why not $60K.

You are correct about one of them going for $60K, and I thought at first that it was this one, but I'm not sure it is.  If it is, then $10K seems to be an awfully low starting point if they're serious about selling it.
