This actually brings up an interesting thought. I don't have a burst, but I have a 50's goldtop and a 50's Jr (and other guitars and amps). If I sold them all I could improve my funds for retirement. But taking the steps to sell them, I don't think I could do it. The thought of "I'll probably not live for much longer and wont enjoy these" is super depressing. If I have the good luck to grow old, I don't think I could make that choice. If anyone in their 60's have made that choice, I'd be interested to hear your opinions.Ted is only doing what a lot of other 70's rockers are doing which is to eliminate excess or unused items .. G. Geil's sold his 59 years ago .. retirement .. Geddy Lee dumped his ... was collecting dust . Rik Emmett sold most of his collection and now Alex Lifeson of Rush fame is talking of doing the same ... as far as Ted "being skint." are the other gentlemen skint too ? hardly, not even close ... these guys are all approaching their 70's and serious touring again is highly doubtful, they are simply cashing in to use the money for other things ...
