"the widow wanted to make the guitar 'available for the Elvis fans" that's about the funniest thing I've heard - how about donating it to Graceland then, with the requirement that it would be on display

This way it ends up in someone's living room or hall way. Yes a true availability for the fans..

This should be stored in Graceland, no where else. Donate it, Elvis didn't ask money for it , it was a gift.
