After I slayed the beast, I cut him open and found this:

The myth that hot chicks can really play the guitar?

Hope you've got an extra bushing laying around.
Talk about a great teaser thread--can't wait to see how you build this up, then show it.

Re: It's no longer a myth...

Alright, time for some real pictures of the beast. I wish I had a camera that could do this guitar some justice.

This guitar is in absolutely phenomenal condition. The only blemishes I can find is a nick in the headstock and the signature is slightly faded. The color is glowing in person and the hardware is nice too. Even has the palmrest! Number #124!!! The pickups appear faded in the pictures but it's not nearly as bad in person. My camera blows! I'm going to try and get some pictures of the family (when I can get them all together) with a better camera later.


While looking on my local Clist one morning in my stats class, I about died when I saw this LNG for a price I couldn't pass up. The previous owner had had it in his closet for the past 10-15 years he said and that it was time for it to go to a new home. Anyways, I never thought I would have an LNG at 18. The problem i'm having is actually playing it. When I play it, I feel like i'm putting miles on a low mileage Ferrari. A Dy or an Sk doesn't feel this way for obvious reasons. Does anyone know what the signature is signed with? There's no clear or vinyl and I know Steve only signed the first few with an indelible.

Re: It's no longer a myth...

I'm surprised I missed that one on Craigslist. Good buy, glad you got a deal!

Re: It's no longer a myth...

Congrats man! That's an awesome buy, so lucky.

re protection of the signature, one of the guys on here used some of that 3M clear car-bra vinyl to cover the signature and preserve it.

Me too Bryan, especially since I knew you were already sniffing around in my neck of the woods haha.

The problem I have with vinyl is that it will either pull the signature up upon removal and that it also only lasts about 8-10 years before it starts to yellow.

Re: It's no longer a myth...

Your a lucky guy!
Being 18, you'll find hard times when it comes to money in the future.
If you're still playing music on a regular basis, even just at home, don't let the need for money force you to sell it.
Always keep it in a safe place and take good care of her, no big belt buckles!
You'd always regret selling it.

Re: It's no longer a myth...

You know, there was a guy who lived I'm North Carolina that had a LNG, Sk, 2 dy's, and a VSK. Last I know, he only had the dy and LNG....cuz I bought the others haha

I wonder if that same guy sold you this...!
