Thanks for all the comments guys :)

Picking up on the money side of things, it’s mad when you break it down. All that money for a lump of wood with another piece screwed onto it and some wire pulled tightly across!

But we know better than thinking that way!

absolutely! at this point it's a legit collectible artefact...I'm a record collector and thinking of a particularly rare and expensive record as a 'small piece of plastic with a hole in it' would not do ;D

the close up on the volume and tone knob really make me realize you can not replicate the original thing.
