So what do you think the odds are that the buyer is a good enough player to use a $100,000 guitar?

I don't see why everyone is so surprised. Micheal Jackson's glove sold for 350k, and he only wore it ONCE.


Rei has nothing to do with MJ. She's not a real person, either O_o;;


I agree with Faeverily. Rei is 2D, while MJ's 3D. There are many people around the world that will support Rei over MJ.


As we know, otkaus work only to spend their money on anime stuff.

Kind of ironic they went to America's premiere guitar maker instead Japan's(Ibanez). I certainly wouldn't have minded seeing an RG or S series prestige in this situation.

They should make one with Ryuugu Rena in the same position.
Well said.

Looks pretty neat but for 100k I expected a slightly nicer look.

That's a very good question. :P

Jokes aside, these Rei Otakus are crazy for buying someting so expensive.

Yuck <_<

Imagine that! And she's not even a guitar player like Yuki Nagato or the K-ON! girls. Heck, by now Rei Ayanami can sell anything - and for a whole lotta dough.

Dec 6, 2009 9:57 PM by Cordelia
