    This looks almost exactly like the guitar that was on their FB in june, it was selling for £2200 but this was listed with nailbombs, so I guess it is an equivalent for much less lol

    The body grains don't match up, unfortunately. The tuners on the one in eBay are a bit tipsy though.

    That is a lot of money to spend on one guitar. I wonder if I will EVER be able to afford one.

    I just sold one for $4000 and I thought I maximized it's value. I've played dozens of guitars that have the same characteristics that guitar had. Once you get over the shock of getting one, you find out how ordinary it really is. Good guitar, but not the holy grail.

    lets make bets on where it caps:
    I say 7.5k

    nvm, after seeing that bid history, there's definitely something sketchy about it lol

    The seller is someone who bought one of the last batch we made - maybe 4 months ago. Says he now has medical bills and needs to raise some $$.

    Not Zack!
    Not a scam though.......
    But crazy bidding!

    I hope this doesn't mean all new B6s will now be $4-7k!

    And it's such a bland looking guitar..

    I don't know about you guys.. But if I was spending that much cash on a guitar it better look like the mutant offspring of sex and evil.. and unicorns ;)

    Yea, or like, flaming skulls and blood splatter and abalone binding with abalone knobs and abalone logo and abalone upside-down-cross inlays. I mean, put that money to good use!

    Its become an issue of fanboyism. I must confess, never actually played one but how much better than a daemoness or a mayones could it be?

    I'd like to think it's a great guitar. I mean, Jonathan and Doug are definitely committed to their craft! But since I haven't played one, I can only speculate. It's hard to imagine spending that much money for ANY guitar.

    I can imagine spending that much money on the guitar of my dreams. Blackmachine doesn't belong to that list, but I am sure this guitar is worth a lot of money, even if the level of fanboyism is unbelievable, by almost any test this guitar company has demonstrated apt quality by almost any measurement - so I am sure the man got what he was looking for, pure quality in an electric guitar.
