You should make the price $9,999.99

It will sell faster.

Yes! I will do it by rebate instead!

Simply use the code "Save Big" when adding this guitar to your cart and I will tape a penny to the inside of the case compartment.

If it's Riff approved, you should make the move.

What a beauty. I played a 70's Spruce BRW Velasquez, and it was easily one of the best guitars I've ever played. Good separation yes, but what a beautiful voice. His reputation is well reserved.

Very beautiful guitar. I just love the sweet voice of MV guitars... and 650 and 52 no less. Nice. If I had an extra 10 grand lying around, I would be tempted to purchase this guitar outright.

Thanks everyone for chiming in with your well-wishes! And yes, I do believe this guitar, while certainly not inexpensive (!), is very competitively priced within the current market.

How much did this guitar cost originally? It is a beautiful instrument! And yes, good luck selling it.
