seems that alot of bean owners have $$$ in thier eyes now that this big ol $5000 number has been reached.
we will see if the next batch up there now comes close to those prices, but it is interesting to see how this recent precident may bump the average income bracket of bean owners. we all know theres not that many out there, so if quite a few sell in the past and coming year(s) at these prices i think they may really leave the realm of players guitars and enter the world of collectible guitars. honestly this makes me sad. i have to say that 2007 or not, $5000 is alot of damn money. and anyone who disagrees obviously is in a different bracket than me.
it was good while it lasted. i feel so lucky to have just gotten in before the curve.

holy hell. but let's see if the ones put up with gluttonous prices in the past 24 hours actually sell. can a bean ever reach 59 goldtop prices? how long did it take for those guitars to go from a few thousand to a few hundred thousand? will we be trading beans in for frikkin houses in a few years?

Like I said before i'm a johnny come lately to the beans, but I still got in at a time that would be considered ground level to the people who followed me. if you're a player, how can you NOT sell at some point along that road? I hate talking about these guitars like someone would talk about mutual funds, but i'm always living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to pay bills, so it's hard to wipe the dollar signs out of my eyes.

i'll hold out as long as i can with my 1000A, but i'm not a collector and at some point it just becomes reckless to carry something that valuable around in my gig bag.

Hi folks,
I'm the seller of the #1276 standard on eBay right now...I'd like to explain a little more about why I'm selling.
Of course I wouldn't be heartbroken if someone paid 5k for my guitar, but I know that is unrealistic. I've loved my Bean ever since I laid my hands on it, and actually went into some long standing credit card debt in the process of acquiring my baby. Alas, I'm not playing nearly as much guitar as I used to and financial difficulties have once again found their way into my life. I don't even own an amp anymore and would hope to find a guitar/amp combo that I can afford while still putting a little money away for the unforseen emergencies.
I guess I'm growing up, but my Bean has seen her days in action and I just don't feel comfortable owning a collector's piece. If I'm going to have a guitar sitting under my bed in a case I'd much rather it be one that I enjoy playing but don't care this much about. In selling, I hope someone else can get the years of use and creative enjoyment that my bean has given to me. Maybe one day I'll again own one of these wonderful instruments, but for now I have to say goodbye...
Although my statements above are lacking in their poetry, I hope that I've given a human face to the auction ad that I've put up.

Thanks guys,

Lindell Todd

Vincent,

With one less bidder #1370 would have sold for $3250.
