Probably why they made so few of them.
Congrats!

But cool guitar for the collection!

the birdseye in that maple is pretty awesome

not crazy about the fingerboard inlays but over all that is one killer axe

thanks for sharing that and congrats on a super rare find

Congrats !!! Its always something special to finally score something very rare that you've always wanted. Like twice found treasure. I hope it's something that is even beyond what you could have hoped for.

Very nice guitar!

It will be great having something as rare as that in your collection.

If it had regular inlays you would be getting a PM!!

Hey! You are the owner not us so if you like them that's all that counts!


It does look fabulous. They went all out with that model.
