I agree, it belongs to Graceland - without doubt.

If this is the real thing, shouldn't EPE buy it ?

Some of Elvis' lesser known guitars have gone for over £100,000 so I would expect this baby to go for a lot more.

Elvis' most important musical instrument was his voice and his soul. Everything else is just decoration. Current bid on this is $10,000, just a little outside my ballpark. I am curious though why the seller would want to sell it now, after holding onto it so long. Must really need the money. mho, it belongs in Graceland but Elvis wouldn't care I don't think. Curious about the one in Vegas tho.

Actually, could I re-phrase that: What I meant to say was: this is the most important of all his MUSICAL instruments. Calm down ladies, ooer missus.

If this is genuine, then apart from that first guitar Gladys bought him, this is the most important of all his instruments. Really iconic this one, how I wish I could afford to even touch the damn thing, let alone own it. What a beauty.

Amazing. For years at the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas they had what was shown to be that very same guitar on display. It makes one wonder.
