I don’t get this seller. No real history with that one. Even items with a more actual Elvis connection don’t always pan out for investors, if you want to call them that. Here’s his last Jet that just sold at Mecum this month for $260K.

The seller got a great return on that one. It sold in 2017 for $430K… lol.

I wonder what one of those sells for when it's in good flightworthy shape.

According to Phil Kubicki (Roger Rossmeisel’s assistant at Fender), two rosewood telecasters were built in 1968. One went to George Harrison and the other to Elvis. There were also two rosewood Stratocaster built, but I’ve never seen pictures. One was delivered to Jimi Hendrix, and Phil didn’t remember who got the other one.
