Here goes -
1st CC - Mirafone 188 prototype - bought for $4000 with RB bag in 1995. Sold in 1999.
1st F - Yamaha 822 F lacquer - bought new for $6200 in 1998, paid another $200+ for RB bag. Had custom tuner built, water keys added for $300. Sold a couple weeks ago.
2nd CC - Hirsbrunner HB-6 - bought for $8500 in 1999, bought ProTec bag for $130, spent $800 getting bell & bottom bow restored, sold ProTec bag & bought Cronkhite bag for $265.
2nd F - B&S (pre-PT) Symphonie model, bought in 2002 for $3700 with Altieri bag. I'll probably spend a few bucks getting some linkages replaced and stuff, but nothing major.
Waiting on an $1800 Cerveny Piggy 4 banger CC that is getting shipped down on approval.
