And it's mine... all mine! Muhahahaha! Every now and then these pop up quite reasonably priced in the local classifieds but they are gone so quickly it's almost impossible to snag one. I have missed out on several in the last few months. Finally found this one last night and picked it up today. It was a bit of a drive but worth it. It's like it was kept in a safe for 15 years - a dusty safe, mind you. There is still some plastic on the pickguard and the paint is perfect other than one small buckle mark on the back. Someone must have done a recent setup and put flatwounds on it before sitting it in a dusty corner. Really just needs a good cleaning. I was going to clean it right after these 'before' photos this afternoon, but once I plugged it in to try it out I couldn't put it down for a few hours. Everything I've read about these is true. It will be coming with me to our band's practice this week.
