GAS Attack - Lado Earth 2002

Found one of these guys on Craigslist - rare find. Guy wants $1300 for it. Seymour Duncans, Floyd bridge, looks pretty good.

Can anyone tell me a bit about these guitars? I've only heard of them in mention.

Crazy handmade custom NGD and a neat story (my bassists)

I don't think that we ever thought of it as the equivalent of music, as the end-goal was to buy more in-game slut clothes-- schecterwhore on rock band

I like it

I wouldn't pay 1300 for it though.

If you could get him to go down a little(harhar sex joke), I'd go for it.

Same here. Based on the article about the bass, there's no way it should be that much.

If anyone ever needs a comically oversized bottle of beer opened, that'd be the guitar to have lying around.

Me too. I love the pickups but the logo keeps me from buying them. I've heard that its relatively easy to remove, but I have no experience with this.

Wait, you're a painter and you're not sure how easy it is to remove silkscreen?

Comes right off.
