I found this on craig's list. Maybe these things need a special "rip off alert" category? (n)

I think Leroy had one of Elvis' microphones or was looking for one not too long ago.
You'd have to catch him and ask him.I don't think he had anywhere near this price in mind though.;)

Unbelieveable $85,000 for a Microphone? Someone with lots of money and no brains will buy it. If you have that kind if dough donate to Presley Place or other charities. If he Studz (spell check) came on the market for that price i would buy it, after i won the lottery.:lmfao::king:

BWAHAHAHAHA! That's a joke cuz Elvis did not use that particular microphone (EV RE-15) at all after The March 1974 shows in Houston, TX. He used a Electro Voice CS-15 E from after the Houston, TX 1974 shows up until the final show on June 26, 1977.

That's what I thought, Tony.
Though I won't even pretend to be any "expert " on that.
Wasn't Leroy talking about some microphones like Elvis' someplace here ?

And it looks like there here to stay unless they do some seriously house cleaning there. Not like someone is going to pay that amount of money for that anyway, unless they are out of their mind that is.

:hmm: Wow, only a whopping $85,000. I know a sucker is born every day but really can't think anybody would have that much money to burn. :doh: Good Laugh for the day!! Thanks. Dovey
