My bad, with the splits and dividends it's more like $2mil
And going back in time and picking the right "Euromillions Jackpot" numbers from just a few months ago is even more lucrative...

But...

If you us-s are really us us-s what number are we thinking of right now?

Awesome score. I have to admit, I was sort of expecting a discussion on the thread topic, but click on the link only to have a major GAS attack...and envy.

Still, I liked the set-up for the reveal!

Re: If you could go back to 1987 and buy a brand new LNG...

wow, that's an incredible find. What would be the chances of picking up an unused, brand new condition, nearly 25 year old guitar? Pretty damn slim.

Question is, how and why did someone buy one back in 87 and not use it? How is that possible? Purely a collector?

I love how it's even got the palm rest plate on it. Rare

humm. now to stare at or play?
thats why i hate mint guitars they belong in a meseum.
i sold all my mints cause i got tired of the urge to play them.
i would play the crapp out of it and think of it like you really did just buy it in 1987.

you think i could hold onto an rg1570 for 23 years and get a few thousand for it?

but it will probably be worth $250 in about 10 years haha

sorry, im off topic

I cannot wait for Apple's stock to tank so I don't have to hear about them anymore.

Re: If you could go back to 1987 and buy a brand new LNG...

If I could go back to 1987 and invest 1590 I would sure as hell end up with a lot more than 2mil from Apple!

But that is a nice guitar, no question I wanted one so bad, but actually believed the Sam Ash guys who told me there was no way in hell any Ibanez would ever cost more than a grand in the months leading up to the release. I just wasn't ready for the high price and just like that they were gone. Did get an 88 FP, which was a decent guitar (though not great) but I never got over that missed LNG.

Silly question, but what does it smell like? I remember pulling mine out for the first time when it arrived and the smell was (and still is) divine. It's like new car smell....but better!
