Not saying that they aren't worth that much but I'm just wondering why when there are now quite a few really good modern custom mouthpieces out there for 250.00 dollars or less. I mean I sold a handmade Guardala Crescent for about 800.00 a few years ago on e-bay. It was a bid up that high. I hated the thing myself although I played it at one time. The person that bought it was happy as a clam and thought they got a great deal. I wasn't about to argue with them. I have never tried a vintage Florida link or whatever. For those that have delved into that world are they really that good? Just wondering. Maybe this is an old discussion.
