    Ahhh. I thought you meant one without any inlays at all. I have seen that one before.

    I really like the abstract art that Kerry put on this V.

    Kerry's, "you aren't the only one who can put stickers on your guitar, Jeff", guitar. LOL!

    These look so much cooler than the ones he have now.

    I remember BEGGING my parents for the red one but it was twice as expensive ($2000 vs $1000.)

    I didn't even bother to ask my parents because they would just look at me like I was crazy.

    Another thing I liked about the Musicians Friend catalogs is that they had the first production line of the Jackson signature, Dave Mustaine King V's and the Marty Friedman signature Kelly guitars. They had those at $2,000. 1994-1995 was like the worst years to not have a job and plus, IMHO, $2,000 is much better than what signature guitars cost now.

    Looks like a Sustainer in the neck.

    +1.

    I used to constantly stare at the pics of Kerry in the Decade of Aggression booklet. Kerry has the like, the best pictures when he holds his guitars in certain ways, whether playing live and/or for a magazine. Like he's holding a medieval weapon. :hungus:

    You're correct. Did a google search and looks like Kerry is a fan of the Fernandez Sustainer.

    Not only that, he had the greatest choice of eyewear too.

    Don't forget this!



    It's also partly responsible for the Hanneman sig I finally got.

    The part at 1:54 where the girl turns around to look at the camera and at 2:02 where she is looking at the band who are standing on the boat is just freaking awesome!!! Really ominous. Dave Lombardo (at 2:02) holding his drum sticks and thinking, "can't wait to jump on the drum throne after this boring ass boat ride". LOL!

    IMHO, this video showcases Kerry's best stage moves.



    At 2:00, 2:07, 2:14, 2:18 and 5:41. That head bang he does at 5:41, the power is unbelievable. :flex:

    Wow that makes mine look brand new...

    I actually took mine to a local guitar store and paid $65 to have it cleaned up, plugged it in last night for the first time in forever and it sounds great. Brings back memories
