ABOUT THE COLLECTION

Geddy Lee of the celebrated Canadian rock trio Rush has spent the past few years delving deep into the rich history of the instrument that defined his 40-plus year career as one of rock history’s most talented bassists. His focused efforts led him not only to build a world-class, investment-grade collection of ultra-rare and desirable vintage and antique guitars, but also to create a book that takes an in-depth look into the amazing evolution of what Lee, the collector, has come to view as a work of art in its own right. With his book now a complete and published piece and his private collection of guitars nearing 300 in total, Lee said he feels that the time has come to reunite a select few of his finest string instruments with talented musicians around the world who can help these works of art fulfill their original and intended purpose of making art. As such, a small selection of six blue-ribbon, coveted classic guitars from Lee’s private collection is now slated to join the Mecum Auction lineup for the Las Vegas auction this October 10-12 as part of Mecum’s new department: Mecum Presents Guitar Search by Domino, and it’s highlighted by a “holy grail” Les Paul Gibson from 1959.

Yeah, somehow the $29.99 I have to spend on a classic car never seems like it'll be enough.  

I'm not really into cars too much, but I am always impressed by the condition of those cars, the loving care someone has been giving them, and the sheer scale of the enterprise. Car people are REALLY into their cars.

I kind of assumed Geddy would be selling a bass or two . . .

A few years back I spent a day at the Barrett-Jackson auction during its annual run in West Palm Beach, and yes, loving care pretty much describes it.  Fantastic beasts!

I have a secret.

I will never tell.  But I have something from Geddy.  It's sacred and rare and he gave it to me.  You will never know.  Please don't PM me either.  LOL

You people think I'm a drunk drug addict lunatic?  LOL!

You have no idea what I have.  

"The joke's on you......"

I will never tell.  

Public Forums are not so sacred.   But I love many on here.


Good night Fools and fabulous Rush Fans.

Outstanding!  At the show in West Palm Chevrolet Performance Parts displayed a 69 Chevelle Malibu, one of which I had once owned.  But this baby was all resto-moded out-black on black and a SP 383 small block (435 hp, 450 ft. lbs. @ 5600 RPM), nasty!

He looks like he's trying to put the guitar in a choke hold.
