"but if you could buy Maynard's Conn Connstellation or Miles Davis's Martin Committee.
Been there done that. They really aren't worth that much when compared to rock or country memorabilia. Also, a old Martin guitar, old Fender, Gibson, can sell for over well over $10,000 without any famous provenance. My favorite horns are the one's I play on a regular basis. The best one is worn and the laquer could stand a little touch up but when people ask, I tell people it isn't worn, it's well loved.
