Made me smile first thing this morning.
Made me wonder what the highest valuation an alembic has been assessed at?

To me, my Alembic is worth a million dollars.

$235K for a '59 LP? I think that's nuts, but I've seen them listed at $600K. What really caught my eye was the claim a 1982 Strat was worth $19.5K!!! Move that decimal point one place left and maybe we can talk - if this was '82 & it was new; early 80s Fenders were, um, let's just say not prime examples of Leo's genius.

The famous "Wolf", Jerry Garcia's Alembic that is the basis for the Further design, (though it has also been claimed by Doug Irwin - several discussions of which are around here), sold at auction for $789,500, including the "buyer's commission".

Anyone who can sell a late 1970s-early '80s Strat for that kind of money is a superb con man. And anyone who would pay that price is a prime sucker.
Barnum, it seems, is proven correct once again.
