Congratulations! Is this around what you were expecting/hoping for? Or am I being too nosy? Whatever. An extra $5000.+ is more than you had before the auction started, so I suppose it's all good, right?

Nice. Be sure to spend some of that money on something frivolous, maybe a weekend someplace Shreck would have liked, and kick back and enjoy some good memories -- and eat some good food.

Well done PF! It seems it will have found a good home for someone to have paid that kind of price. I hope it was what you were hoping for.

Thank you, Cheryl. It was a nail biting experience in the beginning, as of yesterday morning I was thinking I had made a big mistake, bidding was at $1200. Then it went Ka-boom. The last ten minutes was hair raising.

Thanks, CG. When the auctioneer picked up the guitars and such, he said it was an easy $3000-4000. I am very pleased with the results. Much more than I would have made on consignment.

Thanks, Andy! I did miss one guitar, it was hiding in plain sight behind Shrek's chair, it is also the one he played the most. I guess I was meant to keep it, I didn't spot it until the auction posted.

Hi Kayelle, I had Shrek's massive number of guitars, amplifiers, etc. auctioned online. His Epiphone Les Paul Electric went for $500. I even got $73 for the Didgeridoo he never learned to play.

No problem, CD. Have a plan in place. Going to be able to finish up a few of his bills, get the patio door installed and have a weekend somewhere nice.

Thank you, Dragn. It was more than I hoped for. Unless only one person bid on all the items, I believe it made a lot of people happy. Not as happy as I am, I felt such a huge relief when the guitars were gone and I didn't have to worry about selling them.


For the record: 19 acoustic guitars (some were electric, also), 3 ukuleles, 2 electric guitars, 2 mandolins, a banjo, an Autoharp, a set of Bongo Drums, a Didgeridoo, 6 amplifiers and all the little things that went along with all of it.
