Not yet. Still searching though....
Did you ever track down the guitar?
Sorry to hear of the misfortune. The best I can help you is that I returned it to the Guitar Center in Pensacola Florida. I can't remember the store I bought it from, they shipped it to me. I never saw it go back up on the GC website so something tells me it was sold locally in Pcola, but that is just a guess. Maybe you could try contacting them and see if anyone remembers it or where it went. Hope that helps.
Long story short, we broke up, she moved out, and I never saw the guitar again.
Until your post. I would really really like to get that guitar back.
I know that I'm asking a lot from a stranger but if you could help in any way I'd appreciate it.
And if nothing else, I hope you enjoyed the story!
After bringing it to another tech it was discovered that the pickup lead was barely long enough to connect, but wouldn't always make contact. So the guy waved his Magic wand and it worked! All was well in the world.
I was dating a girl at the time. Everything was going well and I asked her to move in with me. Not long after moving in she up and quit a great job as a bank teller (great for her, I realized about this time she didn't even have a diploma) and proceeded to sit around the house all day and "look" for work.
Did I mention she had bought a new car?
See where this is going?
As the bills started to pile up it was obvious I had to do something to help make ends meet. So the ESP (being my most valuable guitar at the time) was sold to help keep the ship afloat.
Which guitar center?
I know it's a long shot but.....
I bought the MII (late 80s) off of eBay. The thing really had mojo. It was nice and broken in and was the best playing guitar I had owned at the time.
Well in a huge Def Leppard fan. And I always loved the Adrenalize graphic. So I thought, since this is a keeper, why not put the graphic on it? Ain't no way I could afford a custom Jackson (nor did I want to wait the ridiculous turnaround time). So I got in touch with Lee at GMW guitars who had Dan doing graphics for his guitars at the time. I sent off the body only and away we went.
It came back beautiful! So I wired it back up (I saved a few bucks by doing it myself), but the neck pup wouldn't work. So I went back and forth with Lee about it. He recommended I bring it to someone. My LMS (who I had minimal faith in) couldn't get it to work either. I was panicking because it worked when I sent it to them.
No I don't have it. I returned it to guitar center due to the neck pickup not functioning and since it had the graphic applied to the pickup I thought replacement was out of the question. But I would still like to hear the story.
