Interesting...

Steve Jobs has promised to buy a vintage electric guitar from the seller if the auction did not sell. It did not, so he bought it. Check it out...

The seller is lucky to meet Steve Jobs personally.

What's more, this ad was featured in the WWDC 2006 conference.

Fantastic Strat; can't believe he sold it.

I wonder what other guitars Steve has? It says he is a vintage collector....

Maybe this is one of the reasons Apple came up with Garageband :)

I don't see that as proof that Steve Jobs bought the guitar. Maybe he lied....

wow, what's this now? Steve Jobs is a mortal just like the rest of us? And when he's not a work he enjoys hobbies in his spare time? Amazing

I can't wait for the report of him buying groceries. :rolleyes:

He said in the Answer that Jobs promised to buy it "IF it doesn't sell" But he sold it. So I guess he will not meet Steve.

LOL!! News Flash

Today Steve Jobs was caught shopping in a supermaket. Staff were shocked to discover Steve at the checkout with a bag of oranges, and no Apple in site :D:D:D:D
