    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.

    I can tell you it's ugly and his deck could use a staining.

    I like it :shrug:

    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.

    Sorry, I'm a painter in the summers. :lol:

    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? :lol:

    Comes right off.
