What do you think that guitar is worth? "the experts" on the show who evaluate the contestants purchases said the guitar was only worth about $100 but the value was in the Travis Bean Pickups so they paid the 2 girls who bought the guitar $600.

As far as I know you can only find those pickups on a Travis Bean Guitar and those sell for $3000-$7000.

it's hard to say because Travis Bean pickups rarely pop up for sale.

I love the way those guitars sound but it has to be more in the neck than the pickups.

It's an Electrical Guitar Company guitar:

Here's my one. It's met grey, not as light in colour as the pic suggests.

I like EGC's guitar enough but I would never spend that much money on one since I want that rosewood/ebony board and it would always feel like settling . . . and that's an expensive guitar to 'settle' on.
