Man, has Dweezil lost it or what ???<br>No offense, he's a great guy and an awesome axe-player, but what i saw today on the news: unbelievable....<br>I was at work today, and during my lunchbreak i (and my collegues) saw the One o'clock news on television.<br>After all the usual topics (War against terror, Saddam being a naughty boy and Blair kissing Bush his ass....) there was a topic about Jimi Hendrix his guitar and that guitar being sold by the son of the other famous guitarist,Frank Zappa,who also played on that very same instrument:Dweezil Zappa.<br>I said: Hey cool, Frank Zappa.... (it was the first time i actually saw or heard about Zappa on television since his death, so it was kinda cool)<br>I watched this piece of news: there was an little interview of Dweezil being showed and a piece of Dweezil playing on the guitar, to show that it still works and sounds very, very good.<br>(Great guitar playing, by the way, Dweezil....)<br>But then came the news that THE GUITAR wasn't being sold, because the highest price someone was willing to pay for this guitar was still to little for Dweezil.<br>Someone was willing to pay some 400.000 Euro's (i live in the Netherlands, in Europe) for it.<br>That's almost the same in DOLLARS i believe....<br>I can't believe this: someone wants to pay 400.000 for this, and Dweezil just says: NO, i can get even more for this...<br>What's up with him: does he already have enough money ????<br>(Of course not, because if he did, he wouldn't be selling it...)<br>He needed the money to repair/rebuild/modify his studio, so i would say: THAT amount of money should take care of (at least) a part of that modification....<br>I don't think Dweezil will get any more money for that guitar, so i'm wondering what he's going to do next....

Hi, it's me.....i'm back.........<br>Well the above-mentioned story also stood in the newspaper today and the exact amount of money Dweezil could have taken home with him was 300.000 English Pounds....<br>But he wanted at least 340.000 Pounds for it, so he just said:''NO...."<br>Unbelievable, i mean: if i am not mistaking, 300.000 pounds is almost (or actually IS) a MILLION DOLLARS (correct me if i'm wrong) but he didn't do it.<br>There actually is somebody out there willing to pay a huge amount of money for that guitar and i hope he will rethink his actions. He has a week worth of time to rethink is answer (according to the newspaper) and i hope that somewhere during the next 7 days Dweezil will step forward and actually say:''Yes, i accept your 300.000 pound offer.''<br>Because i really doubt if there is somebody out there who is willing to pay EVEN MORE money for it.<br>Even if the guitar is burned by Jimi and fixed and played on by Frank, in the end it's a guitar....

[quote author=Ronnys_Noomies link=board=zappaning;num=1032969815;start=0#11 date=11/04/02 at 22:09:48]Why the fuck is he selling it anyway? It's clear that he really doesn't want to part with it, right? I mean, that's an obscene amount of money to turn down. [/quote]<br><br>Yes, i think you're right...<br>If he really needed the money, i think he would have sold it that day...<br>

He stated in an interview the money was to go to maintaing the vault. Why the "specific" ceiling on the price, I have no idea.
