Yes, it's a real low price for the most famous Selmer in the planet (not considering the 503) and I think it will sell very very fast at 30,000 euro. But you're right: It is a very strange move from Stochelo' side... the only thing I can think of (besides a desperate need of money, and I don't think it's the case) is he doesn't think the guitar will hold together in the long distance. In any case, I will never have to guts to own that instrument after him!

He hasn't really used the 504 much in recent years anyway. He seems use for it for all his recordings, DVDs, and big concerts. But for the run of the mill gigs he relies on his Eimers. As good as these old vintage guitars are, most working pros are not up for the kind of care they need, especially when performing 200+ gigs a year! He's probably better off just having something inexpensive and practical.
But man, does that guitar sound good!
