Wow! 5 million.... they tried to auction off one of Eric Clapton's guitars a few months ago, a Stratocastor like a '59 or maybe a '57? The one he called "Slowhand". Thought it would bring close to 1.5 million. Opened bidding at $1 million and got no bids so just took it off auction.

I have a Les Paul Studio made in 2016, Gibson's reputation has taken a beating the last few years for quality control and this one has some kind of weird coloration thing going on with the finish on the front. It's not very noticeable until you hit it with some light just right, then it pops. But it plays and sounds just fine. Otherwise, it's a beautiful wine red color.

I am fortunate to have much better guitars than I am qualified to play.... I don't think I have any that I wouldn't take $5 million for, though....
