    MIJ clone....Over two grand?

    I've been watching this the last few days on eBay and I'm astounded by the money it fetched....

    Granted, it's pretty, but over 2000.00 for a 335 copy????

    "This Guitar was played by Joshua Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age on many of his various projects." People probably think this means this actual guitar, rather than a guitar of this exact model.

    Maybe the Queens of the Stone Age should start test playing "Squirrel" guitars and selling them at $760 a pop?

    They had a song once on a video game I used to own. I can't remember which one though. Doesn't make me want to pay $2000 for a MIJ.

    I don't play guitar because I'm good at it, I play because it's fun!!

    Or me, Stan! It would have been cool to have a matching guiitar and bass. There's one for sale locally in the computer classifieds, but the guy wants 350.00. Too rich for my blood.

    (Edited to add My brain must be fried from overwork. For some reason I thought you were talking about a Mastumoku solidbody bass I saw on eBay that would have matched my Raven. Anyway, 250.00 is a spectactular price for one of those 335-style basses. And, yeah, I wish it was me, too.
