This posting is not an advertisement but shows the impact Elvis Presley has on the world and 60s music. Reminds me of his song with words and music by Otis Blackwell & Winfield Scott: "Who wants to buy a heart/One broken lover's heart/One broken heart for sale..." From movie: It Happened At The World's Fair.

Wow, I bet the guitar wouldn't be worth that much if it was not broken.

More, Victor. Expensive, with Elvis' fingerprints on it. A Martin costs lots.
