Found a NOS Sterling in my favorite EB finish of all time, Pearl Lavender. They stopped making this colour in 2002, and this one was made in June of 2000 and had been sitting in the store ever since. Still had the original slinkys installed. (read: dead as hell). Best of all I got it for a used type price and its in perfect condition. I know not everybody will dig the finish, but I think its pretty cool. And no, I didn't choose my strings based on the purple silks.
