hi- guys i am new to this form. i have couple of japanise les pauls, a 1977 burny ( that was made at the tokai plant) a 1980 burny pre super grade , a 1981 tokai ls50, and a 1982 or so burny white randy rhodes l.p. i bought all of them on ebay over the last 3 years, and paid $400 - $550 u.s. .

my question is this - why do some of these guitars GO FOR SO MUCH AND SOME OF THEM NEXT TO NOTHING ? like this burny randy r. les paul that just sold for ( $1,133.00 u.s.) ( ebay #120050756652 ) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=002&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=120050756652&rd=1&rd=1. ----- i have seen a couple of randy. r. go for $500 in the last year. why is this one over double ?

its a nice colour, possibly a 75 model number ..so quite rare ..its got a long tenon which is definatly rare for a burny, and there looks like there was a bit of a bidding war going on..

i am amazed by the screw through the tenon tho...never seen that before...

People with a lot of money can buy what they want, It really doesn't matter to them if they overpay, they are getting what they want . I'm just happy when I'm the seller in one of those auctions.
