    Hey, Is that first one a Daemoness? I almost bought the Broderick one off him a long time ago, but couldn't come up with the cash. Looks like you got it! Wanna sell that first one? Cause I wanna buy it!. No. Seriously.

    Yea, it would have been a lifelong keeper if I hadn't bought Broderick's LACS (and if it didn't have such a wide/flat neck, but I probably would have still kept it around).

    Man, I'd love that one. I remember when that was refinished, and apparently some guy on CL snapped it up. I wish I would have bought it at the time, because it's spectacular!

    One more I'd like to add. Ibanez' Cherry Blossom. Only two models have had it, an RG and an S model. Sadly both are incredibly hard to get since they were both Japanese exclusives. The LACS also uses it.

    A custom rg7620 carved top body, by (drum roll please) Ed Roman guitars (I know, I know). It was built by Ron Blake, whom no longer builds. I sold it to a guy in the states and it later traveled across the world changing hands and somehow ended up in Finland which was bought buy a member of sso here who did a NGD with it. I was a great guitar. I regret selling it.

    I love the cherry blossom finish and I’m fairly sure we got them here in Europe too. I’ve definitely seen one of the S version in stores here. Could have been a second hand JDM one but it looked new to me.

    I think the S models were limited around the world, but the RG2820QZ were Japan only. My absolute dream guitar and favorite cherry blossom is Robby Baca's (The Contortionist) LACS. With the pearloid pick guard and pearl tuners, it's perfect.

    Yep, it looks kind of like a Tom Anderson version of an RG to me (and I mean that as the highest compliment)

    Dark reds and navy blues always make for beautiful quilt tops imo

    Yours? I haven't thought about Schroeder in years! Always thought he had some great designs, cool faux-split-headstock thing, a nice tailpiece...haven't seen much lately though.
